Producer Roland Emmerich still hasn’t given up hopes for a ID4 sequel. In fact, he’s planning more than one.
The Independence Day sequel is trucking along and the president's on board. Co-star Bill Pullman (President Whitmore), recently gave an update on the film's production, which should begin soon. He also chimed in on the status of Will Smith's return.
Earlier this year, Independence Day co-writer Dean Devlin told the world he's got high hopes for the continuation of the franchise because he and co-writer/director Roland Emmerich finally nailed an idea down. Now they've got to make the flicks, and their chief goal seems to be making everything nice and "lovable."

It's been 16 years since Independence Day exploded into theaters as one of the biggest blockbusters of the '90s, but co-creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin aren't done yet. A sequel's been whispered about for years, and now Devlin says the team might finally be ready. But why now?

20th Century Fox has just given us some serious answers. They've announced the release dates for their biggest upcoming films including the sequels to Rise of the Planet of the Apes and X-Men: First Class, as well as the 3D re-release of Independence Day.
Going all the way back to the '90s, Will Smith has been an action movie stalwart for nearly two decades—and throughout that time, he's dropped his fair share of quips. But, watching them all crammed into an approximately 2 minute clip? Now that's cine-magic.

On routine war game maneuvers, a Navy fleet stumbles on an alien spaceship. Hijinks, as you might expect, ensue with Michael-Bay-like enthusiasm, with swarming alien battle tech, explosions and mayhem.

It's been 15 years since Roland Emmerich famously blew up the White House in his $800 million blockbuster Independence Day, and now he and screenwriting partner Dean Devlin are planning two explosive sequels. But can they get Will Smith to punch more aliens in the face?
