Fox and Roland Emmerich are still intent on making their July 1, 2016 release date for the long-gestating Independence Day sequel, and they've recruited up and coming scribe Carter Blanchard to write a new draft of the screenplay, according to Deadline

Will Smith has alrady been ruled out to return, though at one point Michael B. Jordan was the filmmakers' top choice to take his place, probably playing the stepson first seen as a kid in the original film.

Emmerich previously revealed that the sequel takes place 20 years after the events of the original film, which is how long it's taken aliens still lingering in outer space to reach Earth to provide reinforcements to the battalion beaten by the humans the first time around.
