Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Back in November we learned that Twentieth Century Fox officially green lit the long awaited INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, putting the film on track a 2016 Summer release. That means that the alien invasion sequel will hit the big screen almost exactly 20 years after the original.
It is no secret that Will Smith will not be returning to star in the sequel but that isn't stopping this machine. When producer Dean Devlin and director Roland Emmerich first began the serious talks of doing a sequel to INDEPENDENCE DAY, the plan was to make two sequels which would shoot simultaneously However the approval from Fox is currently for only one film.
With production now underway, Devlin shared the first image via Instagram from the set of the film in which he poses with the returning Jeff Goldblum.
With Goldblum coming back, other returning cast members include Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, and Brent Spiner. The rest of the cast is currently made up of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liam Hemsworth, Joey King, Maika Monroe, DeObia Oparei, Jessie Usher, and Sela Ward.
INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 will be in theaters June 24, 2016.
