Independence Day: Resurgence.
Following the massive success of the original Independence Day many people assumed that a sequel would be forthcoming quickly. The filmmakers worked for years trying to make the story work but could not find the right way to continue, leaving the film languishing in development hell for years, until Emmerich came upon a thought that lead him to beginning planning two more films to create a trilogy.
In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Michael Schindler and Richard Marquez to talk about Independence Day: Resurgence. We discuss before Resurgence, why add a sequel, the story, the cast, a soft reboot, to sequel or not to sequel, effects and our ratings.
