Fox announce one year delay to Independence Day sequel

We reported back in June that the once mooted two Independence Day sequels, once referred to as ID Forever Parts 1 and 2, but announced as Independence Day 2 was being released to theaters in July 2015.

 

TweakTown image news/3/3/33888_1_fox_announce_one_year_delay_to_independence_day_sequel.jpg

 

Well fast forward just a few months later and the situation is a little different. Perhaps to move it away from a blockbuster year including Star Wars Episode VII, The Avengers 2, and Jurassic Park 4, but more likely to give the production, including the writing/directing team of Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin more time to set the project up, Twentieth Century Fox have delayed the project by a whole year - now blasting screens on July 1 2016.

 

TweakTown image news/3/3/33888_2_fox_announce_one_year_delay_to_independence_day_sequel.jpg

 

Whilst there is still no confirmation on whether original star Will Smith will return in his role as fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller, but the word is that two scripts have been written - one with and without the role. Talk about hedging your bets!

 

Despite this set back, Roland Emmerich, now on the PR trail following the home video release of White House Down is adamant that Independence Day 2 is not only happening, but will be his next project.
