From the makers of the original, (Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich) Independence Day: Resurgence is currently in post-production, set to be released in theatres during 2016. Set twenty years after the first invasion, the film features most of the original cast of characters and looks to be a high-impact-with-a-twist-of-romance-adrenalin-ride that veteran writer/producer Devlin is famous for.
Also the creator of such epic films as Stargate and The Patriot, Devlin was the first to give the Fresh Prince of Bel Air a chance on the big screen, much to the dismay his contemporaries in the industry, but his instinct proved right: Will Smith had something special. And just look at how Smith’s career rocket-launched from his Independence Day platform all those years ago.
Smith will not be appearing in the sequel, but his character’s son looks to be at the forefront of much of the action, joined by Aussie heart throb Liam Hemsworth and the legendary quirk-meister Jeff Goldblum.
