Nineteen years after the first film's release, "Independence Day 2" is definitely happening. On Thursday, Twentieth Century Fox announced that the sequel to the blockbuster film "Independence Day" will make its big screen debut in 2015. The 1996 classic, “Independence Day” starring Will Smith, Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum set the tone for all the big-budget disaster movies that have since followed, and made director Roland Emmerich a big time movie maker.
"'Independence Day' was always like the king who leads his troops into battle against an evil force, and that stays like that," said Emmerich in a previous interview with MTV News.
