Roland Emmerich says Independence Day 3 will be an "intergalactic journey"

Independence Day: Resurgence Roland Emmerich Jeff Goldblum Liam Hemsworth Bill Pullman Banner

We already know that director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin want to do at least one more INDEPENDENCE DAY movie, and Emmerich talked a little about his plans for the potential RESURGENCE follow-up during a conversation with Empire.

The next one will be an intergalactic journey. It'll be [set] maybe a year or two later, not 20 years [on]. I want to maintain this group of people, especially the young characters, and Jeff [Goldblum] and Brent [Spiner] will take part in it. It'll be fun to keep that group together.

Emmerich also said he will "definitely" be behind the camera for the third entry in the series before going on to share some plot details.

Warning: INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE spoilers ahead!

Apparently a peaceful alien race shows up in RESURGENCE with word of a huge civil war going on in outer space, and the next film would see humanity joining the conflict. Emmerich says, "I imagine them now going in one of these ships they've rebuilt into a wormhole. I think it'll be the classic of going into space but it has to be about Earth, and we have a really good idea for that."

Early IDR reviews have been mixed-to-positive, and it is currently projected to make about $50 million in its opening domestic weekend. But with a reported budget of $165 million (and some estimates as high as $200 million), the film is going to have to gross a hell of a lot more than that for 20th Century Fox to seriously consider doing another sequel. What do you think will be the final U.S and international numbers for RESURGENCE?

LOL

Independence Day 2 looks awful and is looking to flop hard. Don't think there will be a 3rd movie.

No one really has gotten an epic alien invasion movie right yet. Battle Los Angeles had such potential, but we all know how that went. Independence Day 1 is probably the better attempt, even with the twenty year gap, the sequel will do ok in North America.

It'll do more then that 75M

It's a bigger world now that China stepped in terms of ticket sales --- And, if FOX can spend millions on two garbage films like FF4, me think they can spend it on ID3

good luck....

as much as I loved the 1st one, I really doubt there will be a 3rd installment....
they predict a 50 million debut in North Amerca ??? wow, that's pretty bad... if true it will end around 100 millions domestic... Overseas BO will be the key : international audiences love those american CGI crap-fest, but it will need a HUGE success overseas to Fox to green-light a number 3...
I read on Variety that China will be, by the end of 2017, the number one market of the world....

No thank you

The first one for those old enough to remember was a lot like the Matrix. At the time it was the newest, latest, and greatest special effects. Nobody had seen anything like it at the time. Now if you go back and watch its like a cheesy sci-fy movie on tv. The sequel is basically like 2012, 10,000 bc, the day after tomorrow just with aliens. i'll watch when its free but we can get jeff goldblum better roles.
