Producer Explains Why Only One "Independence Day" Sequel is Planned

Posted: December 8th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Producer Explains Why Only One "Independence Day" Sequel is PlannedSubmit Comment
When 20th Century Fox and director Roland Emmerich started having serious talks about a sequel to "Independence Day," these talks revolved around shooting two new installments back-to-back.

But that plan ultimately changed. For now, fans can only look forward to one installment, which will hit theaters on June 24th, 2016. In a new interview, producer Dean Devlin explained why we're getting only one film.

"We decided just to do one first to make sure that people like where we're going," he said. "If that works well, there's an ability to do some world building which would be really fun and interesting to do. I think Roland and everybody felt, let's just make sure 20 years later that people still are interested. I think in our case, we started to feel that maybe we were being a little bit arrogant by assuming that we could do two movies. We said you know what, let's scale it down. Let's first make sure that it works for everyone."

Devlin went on to confirm that there have been multiple meetings with Smith about returning to the franchise. "I'm not sure of the reasons why Will ultimately decided not to do it," he said. "I think he was just at a place where he did seriously consider it. We had a lot of meetings with him, but at the end of the day he decided that doing this wasn't right for him."

They shouldn't even make one film sequel, since the first was only great because of the action scenes.

Because wasting three hundred million dollars twice is double the stupid?

Since when did "ID4" have fans? And what the f*ck is with that idiotic title? ID4? Where'd they get the 4? From July 4th? But that's already included in the ID part.

How stupid. Rollie should do a jumpin'-jack high-dive off the same bridge that claimed Tony Scott's life.

The first one kicked ass when I was a child. Should watch it again cause it was a time where the name baldwin (no brother to the other baldwins) meant something.

The reason they're only making one film is because Will Smith dropped out. Bit of a coincidence don't ya think?
