Independence Day: Resurgence (aka Independence Day 2) had a lot of promise in concept, but sadly having to overcome an extremely late release date (20 years after the original film) without its driving star seemed to big a task, even for the action movie blockbuster veteran Roland Emmerich. During a recent interview with Yahoo, Emmerich admits he feels he shouldn't have made Independence Day: Resurgence after Will Smith had bowed out in favor of filming Suicide Squad:

I just wanted to make a movie exactly like the first, but then in the middle of production Will opted out because he wanted to do Suicide Squad. I should have stopped making the movie because we had a much better script, then I had to really fast, cobble another script together.

It's unfortunate we'll never get to see Roland's original vision for the Independence Day sequel and given the poor response to Resurgence, it's unlikely the property will ever be revived for another film - especially with Disney now in control of the Fox title.

Roland Emmerich's latest film, Midway based in the battle of Pearl Harbor hits theaters November 8th.

More about Independence Day: Resurgence (movie)

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Directed by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day: Resurgence's release date is June 24th, 2016.

Well, this was to be expected. Can't say I'm really surprised to be honest.

 Since Scified won't let me edit for some reason: Sorry if that sounded rude to anybody, didn't mean for it to seem rude. It was also a half-joke... I don't know what I mean by half-joke either...
