Hold on to your butts–Jeff Goldblum just announced in an interview with Time Magazine that there’s almost definitely, maybe, likely a sequel to the epic 1996 blockbuster Independence Day headed our way soon.
The subject came up during an interview discussing Golblum’s recent appearance in a GE commercial with comedic duo Tim & Eric. Goldblum was asked about the future of both Independence Day and Jurassic Park.
Well, people like that Jurassic Park thing, and I think they’re making another which I tell them, I’ll be first in line for, but am not in. And then Independence Day, I had a meeting and have been talking over the last several months or year with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the producer, and they’ve been cooking up and say they have a part for me in what they hope will be a plan to make another one pretty soon.
Goldblum also informed us that the script hasn’t hit his desk yet, but it could be arriving in the mail at anytime. However, given the “nebulous” nature of the business it’s hard to know when things will happen and who for sure will be involved (aka…no one knows yet if Will Smith is on board.)
We’re sad to hear that Goldblum won’t be making a return to the land of dino DNA in 2015’s Jurassic Park sequel, but hopefully we’ll get to see him back in this All-American blockbuster soon.
But for now, check out Goldblum’s hilarious GE commercial:
