Independence Day 2 “Is Nowhere”

independence-day-3-film300Anyone hoping to see a sequel to Independence Day have had their dreams dashed after an interview with director Roland Emmerich with Empire confirmed that “Independence Day 2 is nowhere.”

With the project circulating in the bowels of the film industry – development hell – Emmerich is quoted as saying that the project is “back and forth, back and forth. There’s no script because I don’t want to write anything before anything starts.”

So no Will Smith covered in alien guts anytime soon, but there is some good news on the horizon as Emmerich is developing a new science fiction project that is apparently, “very different from other science-fiction movies.” So at least we have this to tide us over as we wait for the motherships to litter the sky once again.

Sky gazers can look forward to Battle: Los Angeles released 11th March.
