With Barack Obama in Office, Roland Emmerich Has More Interest in an ID4 Sequel

id4-110609At a press event for Roland Emmerich’s 2012, the director talked about how historically he’s been against sequels, but would like to make an exception with Independence Day:

“I think everybody has a defining moment or a defining film who works in this business. It’s the one I think I will be remembered for. I kind of think it would be great to do.”

Emmerich also said that one of the reasons why it’s taken so long for a sequel is because he didn’t want to make one while George W. Bush was president.  That’s changed now with Barack Obama in office:

“In Independence Day, it was about a king who leads his country into a fight against an outside invader. I didn’t want to make that movie during the Bush years. It was not thought that George W. Bush would have made a great king. Now with Obama, it’s another story.”

The plot of the sequel will focus on the President and his efforts to lead the country.  You can watch a video of the roundtable after the jump.
