Independence Day 2 Hires A New Screenwriter
Roland Emmerich, however, will have to distance himself from the wonton destruction that he helped give birth to in movies like Independence Day and 2012, which has bled into Man of Steel and Godzilla as of late. Maybe Emmerich will ask Carter Blanchard to help him figure out how to go smaller? Maybe Independence Day 2 will be a quiet character study?

In all honestly, the new release date even works better with the film's premise. It's been reported that the story in the sequel is going to be set 20 years after the events in the first movie, and seeing as Independence Day came out in 1996 only now does the math actually add up.

Will Smith Might Be In Independence Day 2 After All
Keep in mind that Emmerich is once again doing promotional duties for White House Down, this time in Australia, and is probably working extra hard after the movie flopped in the United States.

I sure don't.
