October 14, 2008 - Independence Day 2 / Tom Rothman on sequel's chances
Scooped on Friday, December 25, 2009
IESB corraled Fox chairman Tom Rothman and got him to talk shop about potential remakes, sequels and spinoffs the studio has or is considering making. One of the projects is the long-rumored Independence Day sequel. Here's what was said...
IESB: I've asked you this before, I've talked to Dean Devlin, I've talked to [Roland] Emmerich, I think you know what I am talking about...
TR: ID4 2?
IESB: I know the story, there was a great script, Roland and Dean didn't want to do it, but I talked to Dean and he said he was open to the idea of doing a sequel. It was a huge hit, I still enjoy watching that film.
TR: We would love to do it, it's really a matter of Roland, it's up to Roland. He knows that we'd love to do it. I don't think there is a script but there have been a lot of ideas, but the truth of the matter is he's been making other films. He made Day After Tomorrow for us, big hit movie, he's doing 2012 for Sony. But, any day that Roland wanted to do that, we would be very excited to do it because I think, yes, that story definitely can and should continue.
