Producer Dean Devlin has used Twitter to announced that the upcoming sequel to 1996's "Independence Day" has been given the green light by 20th Century Fox.
This means the film, which has spent years in a rocky development phase, is finally going ahead and is expected to begin production shortly in time for its proposed June 24th 2016 release date - just in time for the twentieth anniversary of the original.
Director Roland Emmerich is in negotiations to return to direct the sequel and produce alongside Devlin and Harald Kloser.
Actor Jeff Goldblum revealed last month that he has met with Devlin and Emmerich about appearing in the film, but no official casting information is available at this time.

The first Paddington story was published in 1958 and the character has since appeared in more than 20 books which have sold more than 30m copies worldwide. Yet it’s taken nearly six decades for the beloved bear to make his celluloid debut, in which time the likes of Winnie and Yogi have stolen some of his celluloid thunder.
It’s been worth the wait however, with the Paddington movie – which combines live-action with CG animation – remaining true to the heart-warming roots of author Michael Bond’s creation while at the same time bringing him bang up to date by telling a very topical immigrant tale.
Proceedings kick off with a spot of pilfering however, the opening scene hugely reminiscent of the sequence that opens Pixar animation Up.
