IGN News: Independence Day Sequels Bring Alien Reinforcements

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U71cEZiyUSU

I'm surprised that Will Smith isn't doing this (either by his own accord or the Studio refusing to give him the keys to the vault). This is his bread and butter and a no-brainer for a big fat payday. Without Will attached, this isn't as appealing for me as a moviegoer. This is a DVD only proposition as of right now.

Ah, ya beat me to it. I was going post this weekend.

The news I'm reading is 2 sequels. It's all pretty much layed out. 20 years after the first Alien Invasion.

While Smith was cool in the first, It's not a deal breaker. I just can't believe it's taken this long to do this.

Roland Emmerich Provides INDEPENDENCE DAY Sequels Details; Says Films Take Place 20 Years After the Original

Quote
Director Roland Emmerich is gearing up to promote his latest film, the White House actioner White House Down, but it sounds like he plans on heading back to our nation’s most famous residence again sooner rather than later.  A sequel to Emmerich’s 1996 blockbuster Independence Day has been rumored for years, but the project finally gained some traction recently when Emmerich confirmed that he and producer Dean Devlin were poised to sit down and write two back-to-back follow-ups.  Emmerich has now offered a new update on ID Forever Part 1 and ID Forever Part 2 (let’s hope they change those titles…), providing some fairly intricate story details and revealing that Part 1 will take place 20 years after the events of the first film.  Hit the jump to read on.

Speaking with the folks at EW, Emmerich revealed that the sequel’s story is set into motion when a distress call sent back to the aliens’ home planet from the first film finally brings reinforcements back to Earth:

”The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back, and they know that the only way you can really travel in space is through wormholes. So for the aliens, it could take two or three weeks, but for us that’s 20 or 25 years.”

The filmmaker revealed that the sequels will be a mix of characters from the original film and newcomers, with the primary focus being on the latter:

While there may be some familiar faces in the sequels — Bill Pullman has already confirmed that he is onboard; Will Smith has not — their storylines will focus on a new generation of human heroes, including the stepson of Will Smith’s Independence Daycharacter (played in that film by Ross Bagley). “It’s still some of the same characters, but also new younger characters; it’s a little bit like the sons take over,” says Emmerich, who promises that the first sequel will have a cliffhanger ending to keep audiences coming back for more. “The first one ends on a little success, but only enough to give the humans hope. And then in the second one they free themselves again [from the aliens].”

Emmerich said that he’s already started working with his art department to design the world of ID Forever, as Earth has been in possession of alien technology for two decades:

It’s a changed world. It’s like parallel history. [Humans] have harnessed all this alien technology. We don’t know how to duplicate it because it’s organically-grown technology, but we know how to take an antigravity device and put it in a human airplane.”

Emmerich and Devlin have completed their drafts of ID Forever Part 1 and Part 2 and have handed them over to White House Down and The Amazing Spider-Man screenwriter James Vanderbilt for a rewrite.  It certainly sounds like things are moving full-speed ahead on the Independence Day sequels, and Emmerich certainly knows how to blow **** up real good so hopefully we see them come to fruition in the near future.  Someone tell Jeff Goldblum to pick up his phone.

New Dates ‘Independence Day 2′

Quote
Fox is hoping for a massive July 3rd, 2015 as they’ve announced Independence Day 2, the sequel to Roland Emmerich’s box office smash 1996 from starring Will Smith. The first movie, which was kept pretty secret until closer to release, grossed over $800M worldwide.

Well, Roland says it like it is...

Will Smith not returning for Independence Day 2

Quote
Director Roland Emmerich (White House Down) has spent a lot of time talking up the sequels to the sci-fi box office smash Independence Day over the past few months, and now that 20th Century Fox has set a July 3rd, 2015 release date for the first of the two follow ups - tentatively titled ID Forever Part 1 - it finally seems that the long-rumoured project is about to become a reality. However, it will do so without Will Smith, with Emmerich confirming that the star won't be back to battle more aliens as Captain Steven Hiller.

"Will Smith can not come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name," Emmerich tells the NY Daily News. "We have like maybe half of the people that you know would know from the first film (in the script) and the other half people who are new. I think some aliens will be back..."

The script for ID Forever has been written by Emmerich and his regular producing partner Dean Devlin and is currently undergoing a polish by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man). Emmerich has previously indicated that the sequel will take place some twenty years after the original as alien reinforcements arrive on Earth looking to complete the job they started back in 1996.

I just read rumors might have Will Smith do a cameo.  ;)

Roland Emmerich Says Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman Will Return for 'Independence Day 2'

Quote
I was lucky enough to moderate a great Q&A with White House Down director Roland Emmerich this evening at the Apple Store in SoHo, NYC, and Independence Day addicts out there (myself one of them) might want to pay attention to the rest of this post. We both spoke very highly of Independence Day during the 40-minute conversation (listen to the whole thing right here), and it didn't take too long before Independence Day 2 came up. Emmerich told me he's always been interested in returning to both Independence Day and Stargate (I have a feeling that'll come next) -- both of these in addition to producing a Lawrence of Arabia show for television --  now that technology has come a long way in the last two decades.

Previously Emmerich has said that half of the cast of Independence Day 2 will be made up of returning characters, while the other half is new. Earlier today it was reported that Will Smith is a little too expensive and too big a star to get back for part two (comments Emmerich reiterated tonight), though he elaborated a bit and said he still hasn't presented Smith with the final product and hopes he can get him for a cameo to "pass the torch," so to speak.

When I pressed him on who those returning characters are, he said Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are on board so far. In the original Goldblum played the nerdy scientist heartthrob whose shticky relationship with his father (Judd Hirsch) provided some of the film's greatest moments. Pullman played the badass president of the United States who took to the skies to defend his country against the invading aliens (he also gave us one of the most spirited and patriotic of all movie speeches). No word on how either man factors into the plot of the sequel, which Emmerich has said is "unusual."

Independence Day 2 is due out on July 3, 2015, while the very fun and exciting White House Down hits theaters this weekend.

Will Smith may return after all


Oh what a difference an M. Night Shyamalan movie makes. Earlier this year, director Roland Emmerich confirmed that Will Smith would not return to the role of Captain Steven Hiller for ID Forever Part 1 - the first of two planned sequels to 1996's blockbuster Independence Day.

However, according to Emmerich, it appears that Smith may have had a change of heart - no doubt due to the critical and commercial failure of this summer's After Earth - and could be looking to shake off the Shyamalan effect by returning to his first major box office success.

"It changes every month," Emmerich told Digital Spy during a promotional interview for White House Down. "I sometimes say 'No, Will Smith will not be in it,' because he didn't want to do it before but now we have a meeting planned where we want to talk about it again."

ID Forever Part 1 has been written by Emmerich and regular producing partner Dean Devlin, with James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) providing a polish. It is set some twenty years after the original, with alien reinforcements arriving to threaten humanity once more. The film is currently slated for release on July 3rd, 2015.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 05, 2013, 02:19:44 pm
If Will Smith is smart (and that's in doubt because he decided to do an M. Night film) he should accept whatever role he can get in ID Forever. I welcome it.

There was some hope last September that Will Smith would reprise his role of Captain Steven Hiller in director Roland Emmerich's upcoming Independence Day 2, but that won't be the case.

Deadline has learned that Emmerich and co-writer and producer Dean Devil will have to take on the aliens without Smith, as he has informed 20th Century Fox he won't be joining the sequel, which is scheduled for a July 1, 2016 release. That date marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 original, which grossed $817.4 million worldwide.

It doesn't mean the movie won't be made, however. Emmerich and Devlin wrote two different versions of the movie – one with Smith and one without him. James Vanderbilt has since been working on the two separate scripts.

Emmerich previously confirmed that a number of the original film's characters appear in the scripts. The 1996 original also starred Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Randy Quaid, Mary McDonnell, Brent Spiner, James Duval and Vivica A. Fox.

They made INSANE jumps in tech over the last 20 years.  They got a moonbase and hover-jets and sh*t.  Though I wonder how much of that has trickled down to the rest of the world.  We know the planet is united, but realistically, after the massive destruction and death in the original movie, you gotta figure that the environment is wrecked, that there's massive waves of migrants, unemployment, health crises... we have to have become a third world planet after that.  Even if the military has advanced tech, what's happening to the regular people on the ground?

Why Will Smith won't be back in the 'Independence Day' sequel

Quote
Fox released the trailer for the "Independence Day" sequel, "Independence Day: Resurgence," Sunday afternoon, and the first thing you may have noticed is that Will Smith isn't returning for another battle with aliens. Back in 2014, Deadline reported that Smith turned down working on the film.

Previously, director Roland Emmerich, who will be returning for the sequel, said they simply couldn't afford to cast Smith in the film because "he's too expensive."

"Will Smith cannot come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name," Emmerich told the New York Daily News in 2013. "It would be too much."

Smith received a $20 million payday for 2001's boxer movie "Ali."

So how is the movie dealing with Smith's absence?

Easy: They're killing him off.

Along with the trailer, Fox launched a website called The War of 1996, showing a timeline of events since the first film, which came out in 1996.

Entertainment Weekly spotted a nugget on the timeline showing that Smith's character, Col. Steven Hiller, was conveniently killed April 27, 2007, while testing an alien hybrid ship.

Here's the entire blurb:

While test piloting the ESD's first alien hybrid fighter, an unknown malfunction causes the untimely death of Col. Hiller. Hiller's valor in the War of '96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mother ship lead directly to the enemy's defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and son Dylan.

It looks like Smith doesn't have the chance to even come back in any more potential sequels.

Though Smith won't be back, a majority of actors from the original movie will reprise their roles, including Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, and Bill Pullman.

Maybe the movie doesn't need him. They signed on "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth as one of the film's leads.

The first film became the highest-grossing movie of 1996. It made over $817 million worldwide.

"Independence Day: Resurgence" will be in theaters June 24, 2016.

I wonder if the movie will take place on July 24th and the days leading up to it, the same way the first flick took place on the 2nd, 3rd, anf 4th (which helped since it actually came out on the 2nd even though it was supposed to come out on the 4th).

Of course, what happens if they do that and the release date gets moved up to the 4th?  I'm reminded of The Martian, where the supplemental material was supposed to be happening in real time, and then all of a sudden the movie got pushed forward a month.

Will Smith Reveals 'Terrible' Moment He Found Out His Independence Day Character Was Killed Off!

This shocking death was a surprise to many, including Smith — who "had talked" to director Roland Emmerich about working together on a sequel. He told Yahoo! Movies:

   
Quote
"I was working on Suicide Squad during that time… The trailer looks really cool. I'm going to be sitting around with tears in my eyes when that one comes out… It was terrible when I found out my character died."

According to a fake newspaper headline on the website, Smith's character died in 2007 from "an unknown malfunction" while test piloting an alien hybrid fighter.

Dude, you're not reading between the lines. It's Roland. He will use Alien DNA to revive Will's character in the 3rd installment, thus becoming the very thing he use to hunt in the first film. It's a great twist to the tired cliche of Humans Vs Aliens. Ye of little faith...... ;D

Anything is possible. I just read an article on a huge spread of predictions for opening weekend. It's not science really and somewhat unpredictable. There's a huge population who cherish the original, but do they care 20 years later. The kids today do not know about the hype and release of the original. They've probably seen it, just not enamoured with it.

I still think it will be a very good opening. I'm biased. ID will probably be one of the few films I go see at the theater

Oh man, Tracking is just unreliable voodoo, really.  You can gauge interest ahead of time, but you never really know 100% of the time.

I gotta tell you, the Red Letter Media's re;view of the original Independence Day, which I haven't properly seen in ages, is making me want to watch the movie even more.

Amazingly, I don't own this.  And I always liked the movie.  I've seen it avery few years, which with my recall feels like once every year.

Given that there won't be another movie I'll want to see in the theater for another three weeks, I'll probably check this out in the theater as well.

Well...


F*ck


So disappointed. I started wondering what time it was. Ya know... Looking at the clock. I actually may have dozed off.

Ya know how we talked about studio play books. Well Emmerich and Devlin must have broke out the original script, add a dash here, repeat this, make everything bigger. Way f*ucking bigger. Ludicrous bigger. The new mother ship is sooooo big, it like a hand holding a ball (earth). And it lands on Earth.

The scope of this was so big, I couldn't tell what was going on. The fights were just video game mind boggling chaotic. ID2 was like a mashup of the original, Starship Troopers, a video game Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and these stupid teen movies of late (Divergent, Twilight, etc). All the pilots were super young and spitting out cute comments while in battle.

Gawd, I guess I really hated this sequel. I have zero interest in revisiting this. It certainly missed the magic of the Original. I did not care about one character. Even the president coming back seemed a tad mentally challenged.

I guess that's true for Smith. Honestly don't care about his work any longer.

I just opened rotten tomatoes. Wish I did that first. It's quite clear, audiences experienced the same thing I did.

At times I do visit RT for DVD's and its helped confirm and saved me time. For instance, I've got a variety of DVD's sitting here, all very unknown flicks. I know nothing about them. I went to RT to see the ratings. Going with the best scores first. Even the bad ones I'll give a go, just to see if the rating is fair. It rarely is wrong.
