Roland Emmerich’s latest film hasn’t even been in theaters a day and he’s already got a follow-up. It’s not a third Independence Day film, though; it’s called Moonfall.
The alien invasion movie is a proven subset of the scifi genre. It’s ripe for all kinds of interpretations, from pure action like Independence Day, to social fears like Invasions of the Body Snatchers. Now, there are two brand new, very different alien invasion ships are being shopped around Hollywood.
What is Moonfall? All we know about is that it's a thriller that's being described as like Fargo, only set on the Moon. It's the work of actor/screenwriter David Weil, who had another script on the 2013 Black List of great unproduced screenplays. And a ton of people, including Darren Aronofsky, are jazzed.
Looking to get a jump on the history books? Science fiction already has a complete list of the men, women, and murderous aliens who occupy the White House in this bright new 21st century.
