Independence Day 2 is officially happening


Director Roland Emmerich had already stated that he is working on a sequel to Independence Day, an alien invasion movie starring Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park). Now we’re one step closer with Twentieth Century Fox officially giving the movie the green light, according to Deadline. The movie is expected to be released on June 24, 2016, which is almost 20 years after the release of the first film.

Production is scheduled to start in May with a deal closing for Emmerich to be the director. Will Smith won’t be returning, and casting will start once the director is officially on board.

The green light is only for one movie, since previous reports mentioned that Emmerich was planning on more than one sequel.
