Independence Day will not be getting a 3D re-release after all. ComingSoon reports that 20th Century Fox has cancelled plans to release the post-converted flick in theaters on July 3, 2013.
The Roland Emmerich film stars Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and Randy Quaid, and was a loose re-telling of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. Originally grossing over $800 million worldwide, Independence Day solidified Smith's place in A-list Hollywood.
No news is available about the plans for the two-part sequel we reported this summer. Stay tuned for more information as this develops!
