20th Century Fox has pushed back its planned “Independence Day” sequel by a year. Originally slated for a July 3rd 2015 release, it will now open July 1st 2016.
One upside of the delay is that it allows the studio to milk the fact that it will be out on the 20th anniversary of the original film.
Roland Emmerich has been working on the sequel with co-writer Dean Devlin and “White House Down” writer-producer James Vanderbilt.
At last report, it sounds like Will Smith will not be returning.
