If The Independence Day Sequels Finally Happen Then Jeff Goldblum Will Be Back

independence day white house explosionDirector and co-writer Roland Emmerich, co-writer and producer Dean Devlin, and star Jeff Goldblum have just been speaking at the Hero Complex Film Festival retrospective screening of Independence Day.

According to Devlin, he and Emmerich are very keen to get the two proposed Independence Day sequels made and released – which presumably means converted into dollars and attention, and those dollars and attention then turned into bigger polls and gratification.

Devlin says that they’ve drawn up a full ‘bible’ for the series’ world, explaining details of the aliens and their technology.* I assume he’s mentioning this for one of two reasons – either they don’t have finished scripts yet or their plans don’t stop at just two more films.

It was also promised that, should the green light finally come on, Jeff Goldblum would be back to reprise his role as Ian Malcolm Seth Brundle David Levinson. Which is nice, because hes very good at playing that character, no matter what film it’s in.

*Runs on some Mac OS or another, if I remember correctly.
