The producer of 'Independence Day' has said that he and director Roland Emmerich are actively working on a sequel.

“I can tell you that Roland and I have been working together for the first time in 11 years and we’re every excited about the idea of doing it,” Dean Devlin told Heat Vision.



“Whether or not we can make this happen, if we can get all the pieces to come together, that’s gonna be challenging. But creatively, for the very first time since we did the original, I feel we have a worthy concept, a worthy path to go.”

It was reported last year that Fox was planning to film two sequels to the 1996 blockbuster.

“We resisted doing the sequel for years because we still wanted to honor the first one,” added Devlin.

“The first one gave us all careers, and we really love that movie and loved the experience. We didn’t want to make a movie because it was financially a good idea, we only wanted to do it when we had an idea and a concept that creatively felt like it honored the first one - that it felt like an organic sequel as opposed to ‘let’s just go make some more money.”

It was also rumoured that Will Smith was asking for a fee of $50 million (£32 million) to star in the sequels, and that they also feature roles for his children Jaden and Willow.
