Nearly 20 years after the first, Independence Day 2 will arrive in cinemas in July 2015...

Well, the summer of 2015 got just a little more crowded. Already, we've got The Avengers 2, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Finding Dory, probably Man Of Steel 2, Jurassic Park 4 and Star Wars: Episode VII amongst the big films vying for your money.

Now? You can add the long in gestation Independence Day 2 to the list. Fox has finally given the sequel the go ahead, with Roland Emmerich directing once more. The film will arrive on July 3rd 2015, almost two decades after the original, and a week before Pirates 5.

No details on casting have been announced at this stage, but with Roland Emmerich about to undertake a press tour for his upcoming White House Down, we've got a fair idea what we expect him to be asked about...
