With Independence Day 2 definitely happening, there’s word that the film has two completed scripts. Why two, I hear the few ask? Well, one involves Will Smith returning as Captain Steven Hiller, the other one doesn’t. The two scripts have both been completed, meaning that production can start to move forward as and when director Roland Emmerich and the studio see fit.
In terms of Big Willy’s return, Emmerich recently said, “It’s looking good.”
Emmerich has previously confirmed that Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum will be returning, whilst there has also been rumours of Michael B. Jordan joining the film.
At present, Independence Day 2 is looking at a 3rd July, 2015 release.
Expect more on this as it develops.
