Roland Emmerich planning ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Stargate’ sequels

July 10th, 2012 by Jay Comments

Roland Emmerich is planning Independence Day and Stargate sequels.

The director’s creative partner Dean Devlin has spoken about the pair’s plans to follow-up both of the 1990s sci-fi blockbusters.

“I can tell you that Roland and I have been working together for the first time in 11 years and we’re every excited about the idea of doing it,” Devlin told The Hollywood Reporter regarding an Independence Day sequel.

“Whether or not we can make this happen, if we can get all the pieces to come together, that’s gonna be challenging. But creatively, for the very first time since we did the original, I feel we have a worthy concept, a worthy path to go.”

Devlin added that they did not want to make a movie that was just “financially a good idea”, but also one that would “honour” the original.

“Stargate has always had this empty hole,” he said of the 1994 movie.

“When we made the first one, we always intended on doing part two and three, and we were prevented for years. And our hope is that we can get another chance at Stargate and tell the entire story we wanted to tell.”

Devlin remained tight-lipped regarding storylines for the potential sequels.

Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
