Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Around the end of last year Twentieth Century Fox officially green lit the long awaited INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, and set the film on track for a 2016 Summer release. That means The alien invasion sequel will be hitting the big screen almost exactly 20 years after the original.
Today we have the first concept art along with the official synopsis for the film below.
"Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction."
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.
Production is officially underway and not long ago we learned that actor William Fichtner joined the cast for INDEPENDENCE DAY 2. He will be portraying a lead role as a top general. Not only that, but Fichtner has signed on to do three films, that is if Twentieth Century Fox were to make two more sequels. Now with three new ID4 flicks possibly on the horizon, we can only wait and see what time will bring.
The cast is made up of Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liam Hemsworth, William Fichtner, Joey King, Maika Monroe, DeObia Oparei, Jessie Usher, and Sela Ward.
INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 will be in theaters June 24, 2016.
