Well isn’t this a lovely turn of events? It seems that the last half of 2014 and moving on into a bright and shiny 2015, more tips and hints are turning out to come to fruition than not!
From Fey to Sandler to “Frank Underwood”, some of the hottest gossip that has landed in the OHI inbox is rapidly coming to life, on location and in the amazing studios available right here in New Mexico.
The 2016 sequel is expected to hit theaters…when else…over the July 4th holiday…twenty years later. ID2, two decades on the heels of its predecessor, WILL NOT star the original lead.
Returning producer Dean Devlin has said, “I’m not sure of the reasons why Will [Smith] ultimately decided not to do it. You’d have to ask him. I think he was just at a place where he did seriously consider it. We had a lot of meetings with him, but at the end of the day he decided that doing this wasn’t right for him.”
Also back for part deux is director Roland Emmerich. Likely character returns include Jeff Goldblum as environmentalist David Levinson and Randy Quaid’s refugee transporting, Russell Casse.

And here’s the mock-up of the movie poster of our dream cast for the follow-up flick. Note the artistry in the head cropping, inspired by the original PW poster that was famously and similarly doctored.
As for the script, it is here in whole form, filed away; where it has been since it made its rounds to some Roberts-Moder representative in Taos, then up to an NYC production co. who politely returned it to us non grata – WOW gotta love “the business”, even that was an exciting day at the ~office!
Well, if and when she’s ready the story in its entirety is here for her, fait accompli – Jules, Mr. Marshall, Anybody, Anybody…
