The two-part sequel to Independence Day is coming. Entitled ID Forever, Part I and ID Forever, Part II, director Roland Emmerich has spilled details about the upcoming films, that will be set 20 years in the future. Here goes:

”The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back…And they know that the only way you can really travel in space is through wormholes. So for the aliens, it could take two or three weeks, but for us that’s 20 or 25 years.”

“It’s a changed world…It’s like parallel history. [Humans] have harnessed all this alien technology. We don’t know how to duplicate it because it’s organically-grown technology, but we know how to take an antigravity device and put it in a human airplane.”

James Vanderbilt is working on the script, and Bill Pullman has signed on to reprise his role as the President. The story »
