‘Independence Day 2’ Is Happening

16 years after the first Independence Day, Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich are planning a sequel. The two are teaming up again for the first time in 11 years to work on the film.

“We resisted doing the sequel for years because we still wanted to honor the first one. The first one gave us all careers, and we really love that movie and loved the experience,” Devlin explained. “We didn’t want to make a movie because it was financially a good idea, we only wanted to do it when we had an idea and a concept that creatively felt like it honored the first one — that it felt like an organic sequel as opposed to ‘let’s just go make some more money.’

“I feel like we got it,” he continued. “I think it took a long time, but I feel like we finally got something that really feels like, ‘that’s worth seeing as a sequel to Independence Day.’ “

I admit it. I’m excited about this movie. But only if Will Smith comes back because who doesn’t love hearing him shout, “Welcome to Earf!” Welcome to Earf indeed.
