Did You Know?
Soon after the success of the first film, 20th Century Fox paid Dean Devlin
a large sum of money to write a script for the sequel. However after completing writing it, Devlin didn't turn in the script and instead gave the money back to the studio, as he felt the story didn't live up to the first film. It was only approximately 15 years later that Devlin met up with Roland Emmerich
to try again, having felt that they had "cracked" the story for the sequel. See more
