Have the Independence Day sequel titles been revealed?

It's no secret that 20th Century Fox and Roland Emmerich are planning to make not one but two sequels to the 1996 blockbuster INDEPENDENCE DAY. It's any wonder that it hasn't happened already. (It made $817 million worldwide, which is still good for #34 on the All-Time list.) The dual-sequel plan was first revealed almost a year ago, and there's been little follow-up since (that we've been privy to, anyway), but today some information is leaking out that suggests things are indeed happening behind-the-scenes on the next ID4 films.

German site Film Starts (via FilmNews.co.uk), reporting from the set of Emmerich's current film WHITE HOUSE DOWN, has dished out the following juicy info, straight from the director's mouth: "It wont actually be two single sequels, but the continuation of Independence Day, which will be called ID Forever - Part 1 and ID Forever Part 2."

ID FOREVER... That's clever.

Emmerich didn't go into further detail, but he did explain that he's not keen on shooting the film in 3D. "My opening line was: 'I really dont like 3D. So do whatever you want, but run it by me. Have you ever taken magic mushrooms? It feels a little bit like that."

So all that can be confirmed right now: The working titles are ID FOREVER PARTS 1 and 2; Emmerich isn't a big fan of 3D; Emmerich has had a negative experience with magic mushrooms. Run with it!

The original was a true summer blockbuster. Definitely one of those movies that had a huge impact on me as a kid. I can't wait to see the sequels. Will we see Randy Quaid flashbacks involving probing?

When I look back on the original, I tend to cringe at how bad it was. But despite how crappy I now think it was, it was still really freakin FUN, which is, in my opinion, the most important thing a tentpole movie has to be. I saw it 6 times when it came out, and to this day, It's still by far the one film I saw more times than any other in the theater. As long as they dont lose sight of what made the original one so easy to watch, I'm totally game for sequels....
