April 7, 1998 - Independence Day 2 / Dean Devlin on sequel
Scooped on Friday, December 25, 2009
In the wake of the bad feelings Devlin and Emmerich have at Fox for the cancellation of their television series The Visitor and their multi-million dollar deal with Sony Pictures, don't look for the star duo to return to craft a sequel to their 1996 monster hit Independence Day. In what appears to be one of the final nails in the coffin, a scooper reports that ID4 co-writer and producer Dean Devlin responded to a question about an ID4 sequel at a Creation convention. Devlin answered by telling the audience that neither he nor Roland Emmerich will ever make a sequel to ID4, saying they have other things they would rather do.
That would leave Twentieth Century Fox without their creators should the studio ever actively seek to develop a sequel to the 1996 film. It would also mean that the proposed story concept we were told about last spring would also be dead since it was also Devlin and Emmerich's concept.
