It may have taken 16 years, but Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich are finally set to bring their beloved and patriotic Independence Day back to the big screen.

"I can tell you that Roland and I have been working together for the first time in 11 years and weíre every excited about the idea of doing it," Devlin said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "Whether or not we can make this happen, if we can get all the pieces to come together, thatís gonna be challenging. But creatively, for the very first time since we did the original, I feel we have a worthy concept, a worthy path to go."

The Will Smith-starrer opened on July 3, 1996 to $50.2 million domestically. To date, the film has grossed a worldwide total of $817.4 million.

"We resisted doing the sequel for years because we still wanted to honor the first one. The first one gave us all careers and we really love that movie and loved the experience," Devlin explained. "We didnít want to make a movie because it was financially a good idea, we only wanted to do it when we had an idea and a concept that creatively felt like it honored the first oneóthat it felt like an organic sequel as opposed to Ďletís just go make some more money.'"

"I feel like we got it. I think it took a long time, but I feel like we finally got something that really feels like, 'thatís worth seeing as a sequel to Independence Day.'"

Devlin remained tight-lipped about how the story would continue, but as for returning cast members, the writer-producer conceded: "Weíre beginning a long process of talking to everybody. Weíll just have to see what happens."

In addition to Smith, the first Independence Day also starred Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Mary McDonnell, Judd Hirsch, Randy Quaid and Vivica A. Fox.

While there is still no official timeline set for the sequel, Devlin remains busy as the executive producer and director of TNTís hit crime drama Leverage. The series, starring Timothy Hutton, is preparing to enter its fifth season on the network, with the premiere scheduled for July 15.

"Iíd love for it to go as long as it can stay relevant," Devlin said of the show. "As long as the story can keep being exciting and when I donít see the endings coming, then I think itís worth continuing."

The series centers on a five-person team: a thief, a grifter, a hacker and a retrieval specialist, with Huttonís former insurance investigator as the leader of the pack. Together, the group aims to right the injustices of the world as modern day Robin Hoods, with storylines ripped from the real-life headlines.

"The good news for us is we never seem to run out of villains. Everyday we open the newspaper and are like, 'Wow! Thereís another guy weíd love to take down!'" said Devlin. "So I think as long as the world keeps providing us with privileged people who take advantage of those who are powerless, I think we wonít run out of stories."

As Devlin continues his work in television (he produced a slew of TV Movies before Leverageís 2008 debut), he also ponders which projects he might like to revisit. Among Devlinís most notable films are Godzilla (1998), Stargate (1994) and The Patriot (2000).

"Stargate has always had this empty hole," he confessed. "When we made the first one, we always intended on doing part two and three and we were prevented for years. And our hope is that we can get another chance at Stargate and tell the entire story we wanted to tell."

as long as it isnt some reboot bullsh*t and has decent concept to carry off the first, I will see. That first still holds a great childhood memory.

my question is.....................how?

the aliens return. If they do, I hope they win. Tired of the same bad guy take over, good guy win at the end.

EVEN though I ate them words when the bad guy got away in The Lovely Bones. That sh*t mad me sick.
