Bleeding Cool tells us the following:
Director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin have often declared their plans to make not one but two Independence Day sequels. Last September Emmerich even named the films, calling them ID Forever Part One and ID Forever Part Two.
Well, 20th Century Fox’s release schedule doesn’t agree. The studio have just made an Independence Day sequel official by giving it a release date, but there’s none of that goofy ID Forever stuff.
Nope. They’re just going with Independence Day 2. For now, anyhow.
You won’t be surprised to hear that the film has been slotted into July 3rd 2015.
