Independence Day 2 is officially happening!

The sequel to the hit 1996 film will hit theaters almost twenty years later on June 24, 2016. The studio is also reportedly close to getting original director Roland Emmerich to sign on for the second film, Deadline reports.

Sadly, Will Smith, the star of the first, will not likely be returning for the second go around. There’s been no additional information about any original cast members returning.

Casting for new roles will reportedly begin after the director is secured.
