Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman Confirmed for INDEPENDENCE DAY 2
20th Century Fox recently announced that Independence Day 2 would be released July 3rd, 2015. Director Roland Emmerich has been working hard alongside producer Dean Devlin on trying to get this sequel off the ground, and it's actually going to happen.
Thanks to Movies.com we now have confirmation that Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman will return to reprise their roles. It was previously revealed that Will Smith will not be returning because he's too expensive now. That's ok, the fact that Goldblum and Pullman are back makes me happy.
In a previous interview, Devlin said that they had come up with a worthy concept for the sequel, and explained:
We resisted doing the sequel for years because we still wanted to honor the first one. 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. I feel like we got it. I think it took a long time, but I feel like we finally got something that really feels like, ‘that’s worth seeing as a sequel to Independence Day.’
As a fan of the first film, I'm excited to see what they have planned. Are you excited that Goldblum and Pullman are coming back to the franchise?
