Have you ever wondered what happened after the events of Independence Day? It has been 17 years since the 1996 Blockbuster and now writer/ director Roland Emmerich is spilling the beans on what would happen for an Independence Day 2 and 3. Emmerich sat down with Entertainment Weekly (read it here) and revealed how the world has changed almost 20 years later for our heroes. Here is the story on ID Forever Part 1 and ID Forever Part II.


”The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back,” states the director, who finished two scripts with Independence Day co-writer Dean Devlin. Currently White House Down writer-producer James Vanderbilt is going over them with a rewrite. ”And they know that the only way you can really travel in space is through wormholes. So for the aliens, it could take two or three weeks, but for us that’s 20 or 25 years.”


Yet one has to wonder what would the world look like after all that alien tech was analyzed and scavenged?


“It’s a changed world. It’s like parallel history. [Humans] have harnessed all this alien technology. We don’t know how to duplicate it because it’s organically-grown technology, but we know how to take an antigravity device and put it in a human airplane”. 


Bill Pullman has already confirmed his involvement where Will Smith has not.


So Maniacs, are you ready for ID Forever Part 1 and ID Forever Part II? Or would it be best to leave it int he summer of 1996?
