Independence Day 2 Confirmed - 20 Years After Original
Alien-invasion sequel is coming to screens in 2016…
It's been a long time coming but Independence Day will finally get a sequel, it’s been announced.
20th Century Fox will be making a follow-up to the alien-invasion movie 20 years after the original, reports Deadline.
While Jeff Goldblum has been approached to reprise his role as computer expert David Levinson, it’s been reported that Will Smith (who played marine pilot Steven Hiller in the original) will not return.
Goldblum said: "I had a meeting and have been talking over the last several months or year with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the producer.
"They've been cooking up and say they have a part for me in what they hope will be a plan to make another one pretty soon."
Independence Day 2 will open over the July 4 weekend, 2016, to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original.
