"What we want to do in the next -- it's actually two movies -- we want to do a bigger arc," Emmerich told MTV. "Independence Day was always like the king who leads his troops into battle against an evil force, and that stays like that."
As for the title, Emmerich suggested: "ID4-ever, Part I and II maybe?"
There is no script yet, just an idea. Emmerich told MTV that when they move forward Will Smith will most certainly be involved. "The idea is just to continue the story and actually I don't know how many years ago this was -- twelve, thirteen, fourteen years ago -- and just continue where it ended."
