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.

Oh no, I'm thinking he might really want to do this.
Lets see if his career maintains. He may need this.

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.

A cameo is better than nothing. Cool to hear that Jeff Goldbum is coming back though.

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.
