June 13, 2002 - Independence Day 2 / Dean Devlin on sequel and 9/11 impact
Scooped on Friday, December 25, 2009
At last Monday's Saturn awards held in Hollywood, Cinescape's Christopher Allan Smith spoke with Dean Devlin to see if he could give more info about the ID4 sequel. Devlin did just that.
"I think we’ve finally found a concept we like," said Devlin. "Something Roland and I are very excited about, and we’re now trying to work it into a movie and hopefully we’ll start writing the script sometime in the next year."
Devlin said that the "wave of feeling" that swept America after last year's September 11 attacks contributed greatly to the core concept behind the ID4 sequel. "After September 11, there was something in the culture that reminded us of the message of the movie and how people came together," explained the producer/writer. "We were deeply effected about that. We were asked a lot of questions in the press in relation to seeing those images. So it spured a lot of discussion, and out of those discussions came a way of doing the film. And we move from that."
