Did you know a Sequel was in development for awhile?
« on: August 20, 2007, 02:18:58 PM »
It was going to be about the ensuing ground battles that took place between the humans and the 10% of the alien force that still remained. The president was able to somehow telepathically link to the aliens due to his prior connection in Area 51, but the damage of the connection starts to deteriorate his mind and risks his health.

Russell Case's son ends up becoming a surrogate son to the president and follows him around like a puppy dog.

No, i am *not* making any of this up.

Yes, i am *very* happy it never got made.

I read this info in a magazine years and years ago, and the info stuck in my brain, waiting to be useful. Today was that day.

I will try and find a source online to back this up but I swear that the info above is how I read it.

AHA!!!

According to the source, the sequel would begin with the humans finding out that a emergency distress beacon was broadcast from the aliens moments before their destruction. The signal will undoubtably reach the remainder of their race. Scientists guess that any follow-up attack will take five years to arrive.

In the subsequent five years Earth rebuilds from the rubble and backengineers the alien technology. This new technology picks up signals coming from deep space - a larger strike force is heading towards Earth, intent upon revenge.

As early in development as it is now, only two characters would return in the sequel. The President would begin to suffer and mentally deteriorate as a side-effect of the alien mind-meld he experienced in Area 51. Also returning would be Randy Quaid's son (portayed by Jimmy Duvall), this time as pilot of the new hybrid of
human-alien combat craft in the military.

For five years the Earth prepares a strike force to repulse the second wave. When the moment arrives, the new alien vessel that enters the solar system is even more massive and powerful than the last one - and they're prepared. Earth forces lose their battle in space. The giant ship arrives near Earth and then begins dispatching millions of troops across the world - forcing a land battle. Combat would rage across the globe the like of which Mankind has never experienced before.

That's all supposed to be in the first hour of screen time.

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson and his family huddle in their basement and jump at shadows and creaking floorboards.

Seriously, was I the only one in the movie theater thinking to myself "I wish we were watching this frantic battle going on outside that they keep hinting about..." But yeah. ID4-2 sounds like direct-to-DVD quality.

Well, they're still working on that Gladiator sequel, aren't they? We can trust that if someone thinks it'll make money, they'll do it.

I like ID42. It's a nice Hitchhiker's Guide reference.

The president can shout "Don't Panic!" during the initial onslaught.

I remember a MST3k based interview in a magazine.  The interviewer mentioned that a sequel to Godzilla (1994) had been "green lighted".

Bill Corbett's response:  "Finally, proof that there is no God."

Notice THAT never got made either.

The Godzilla abomination made by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich came out in 1998 didn't it?

Probably.  I was working from memory.
