After a good 18 years in the shadows, a sequel to legendary blockbuster Independence Day has been confirmed, and we couldn’t be happier.
The iconic box office smash was the making of Will Smith’s career and took him from Fresh Prince to one of the world’s biggest movie stars, but his return is looking unlikely as news begins to leak.
The sequel was given the green light this week by 20th Century Fox and production will begin in May, with a ‘hopeful’ release date of June 24, 2016.
Obviously, we hope Will changes his mind last minute and decides to get involved, but meanwhile we’ll keep our fingers crossed for Jeff Goldblum. Legend.
