There's been some rumblings in the last few weeks regarding the long awaited 'Independence Day' sequel, with star Jeff Goldblum confirming he is on board, and confirming that he has met multiple times with Director producer duo Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin.




With Emmerich's latest picture 'Stonewall' in post production, pre-production is expected to soon begin on the picture, and distributor Twentieth Century Fox has also confirmed a release date change, moving a week earlier from the July 1st 2016 release, to June 24th 2016. This puts the release almost exactly twenty years from the release of the original picture.




The new date also puts 'Independence Day 2' in direct competition with Universal Pictures 'The Mummy' reboot, helmed by screenwriter turned director Alex Kurtzman.
