Want to see Olympus Has Fallen again, but with more Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx as president? It’s right after the jump. But first…
|He’s not MY president|
Director Roland Emmerich sure loves to blow up the White House, because he’s bringing back that other franchise where he did it before. Yep, the Independence Day sequels I never wanted to see are coming:
Emmerich says he’s also working with an art department staff to see how the world of ID Forever might look. “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,” he explains. And while there may be some familiar faces in the sequels — Bill Pullman has already confirmed that he is onboard; Will Smith has not — their storylines will focus on a new generation of human heroes, including the stepson of Will Smith’s Independence Day character (played in that film by Ross Bagley).
Here’s the worst part: they’re going to be called ID Forever Part 1 and ID Forever Part II. Because nothing says alien invasion like a name that screams non-expiring driver’s license.
