Well I guess they abandoned it and decided to stick with disaster films that are not even on the level of "Irwin Allen" type half-assed.

Irwin Allen stole the idea for "Lost In Space" from Ib Melchior.    :P

I'm referencing "Free Enterprise" in a tongue in cheek manner. I think the guy basically says that Roddenberry took Irwin Allen's "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" and stuck it in space.

For all we know, a sequal could still be in development. There have been bigger gaps between a movie and the sequal(s).

Next you'll be telling us they're doing a new Indiana Jones movie.

They're going the wrong way with this.  A Japanese studio should buy the rights to ID4 and turn it into an anime.  That way not only could the young pilot fly hybrid human/alien technology, but it could combine with others to create a giant robot while one of the aliens mutates into a giant blob of magic fat that threatens to destroy the world while several big boobed girls with odd hair all fight over some loser with no discernible talent or appeal until the very end when he suddenly gains enlightenment and saves us all with flashy light effects, but still can't decide on a girlfriend.

Well...

It'd still be better than a second movie.

That hasn't stopped Japan from making it several times.

AHA!!!

http://www.mania.com/35588.html

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.

Dang.  I kinda want to see that.

I don't.  Except maybe in a "train wreck" kind of way.
