Producer of Independence Day, Roland Emmerich, made it known a while back that he hates 3D films. He is just not a fan.
But now it turns out that Independence Day will be 3D-ified on July 3, 2013 for the big weekend in the US of A. And Fox is planning to release the sequels in 3D, as well, although they’ll be shot in 2D and converted in post-production.
This is, of course, contingent on whether or not the sequels actually become a thing. It’s rather iffy right now given that the producers are apparently in a “tough battle” between the studio and the actors.
Dean Devlin, the writer-producer of these upcoming projects, name-dropped them a while back. The sequels will be called ID Forever: Part One and ID Forever: Part Two. With names like that, they’ll definitely be super lovable films…
The thing that really hit me about the movie is how much love there is in it: between the characters; that the filmmakers had making it; that the cast had for each other. As we’re approaching a sequel we’re focusing on that aspect of it. Because I think that was really the key as to why it worked for everyone. It was loveable.
I guess we’ll just have to see. Apparently loveable is the new exciting.
