Fox announce one year delay to Independence Day sequel

Ben Gourlay | Nov 13, 2013 5:58 PM CST

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.

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.

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!
