Fox Announces Independence Day Sequel Release Date

Will Smith, Harry Connick Jr.

Exactly 19 years after Independence Day's release, the alien-invasion drama is getting a sequel, 20th Century Fox has announced. Independence Day 2 is slated to hit theatres on July 3, 2015.

Last year, the film's co-screenwriter Dean Devlin told The Hollywood Reporter, "We resisted doing the sequel for years  ... We didn't want to make a movie because it was financially a good idea, we only wanted to do it when we had an idea and a concept that creatively felt like it honored the first one — that it felt like an organic sequel as opposed to 'let's just go make some more money.' I think it took a long time, but I feel like we finally got something that really feels like, 'That's worth seeing as a sequel to Independence Day.'"
