The sequel to smash-hit blockbuster Independence Day will be released in June 2016.
According to Deadline, producers Fox have finally given the go ahead for the sequel, with production slated to begin in May of next year, with a planned release date of June 24th in 2016.
Director Roland Emmerich and screenwriter Dean Devlin have been working on a sequel to the 1996 movie for well over five years, but finally got approval from Fox yesterday (November 26th).
Independence Day starred Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman and focused on a disparate group of people who converge in the Nevada desert in the aftermath of a destructive alien attack, planning their last stand against the alien invasion.
Will Smith has already ruled himself out of returning to star, but Goldblum has previously said he has been approached about returning and would be open to the idea.
