So far, it looks like it's definitely going to get made - with or without Will Smith (they really don't need him). And it sounds like director Roland Emmerich figured out what he wants to do. The title of the 2 sequel films is TERRIBLE though: "Independence Day Forever - Part 1 & Part 2". But they're just titles so who gives a crap . This is what he has to say about what is planned:

The films take place 20 years after the original, when a distress call sent by the first wave of aliens finally brings reinforcements to Earth. ”The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back,” explains the director, who completed two scripts with Independence Day co-writer Dean Devlin and has given them to White House Down writer-producer James Vanderbilt for a rewrite. ”And they know that the only way you can really travel in space is through wormholes. So for the aliens, it could take two or three weeks, but for us that’s 20 or 25 years.”

Emmerich says he’s also working with an art department staff to see how the world of ID Forever might look. “It’s a changed world. It’s like parallel history. [Humans] have harnessed all this alien technology. We don’t know how to duplicate it because it’s organically-grown technology, but we know how to take an antigravity device and put it in a human airplane,” he explains. After the mass destruction of the original Independence Day, what’s left for new aliens to destroy? “We’ve rebuilt,” Emmerich answers, with a smile. “But [the aliens] also do different things.”
I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully they will be more exciting than the original film. You can read more about it here: LINK
