Fox has already slated a release date for Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2: July 3, 2015.

The date will mark 19 years after the original film Independence Day, which catapulted Will Smith's success as an international movie star. 

The question and elephant in the room is...will Smith reprise his role as Captain Steven Hiller?

Recapping on our post back in March, his return is not official, and, according to director Emmerich, this sequel "it's a bit like the son's takeover."

The ID4 director stated the following while to Entertainment Weekly while doing press for his thriller White House Down:

”The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back [...] 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 [...] 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 [...] It’s still some of the same characters, but also new younger characters; it’s a little bit like the sons take over [...] The first one ends on a little success, but only enough to give the humans hope. And then in the second one they free themselves again [from the aliens].”

There hasn't been a word yet from director Emmerich whether Ross Bagley (Vivica's stepson in the film - now 24) will return to play an older version of himself, or if a new actor will be cast to play the part.Some of the original cast will be back; Bill Pullman has already confirmed his return. We don't know if Vivica Fox will be back however. 

And apparently, going back to our March post, there are 2 sequels in the works: ID Forever - Part 1, and ID Forever - Part 2. It was previously reported that both films will be shot in 2D, and then post-converted to 3D.

We will certainly update you on any new developments when we know more.
