Carter Blanchard to do Rewrite on ‘Independence Day 2’ Script

Carter Blanchard has been set to rewrite the script to 20th Century Fox’s “Independence Day 2.”

James Vanderbilt penned the first draft, and Roland Emmerich is on board to direct.

Emmerich will also produce along with Dean Devlin and Harald Kloser.

No plot details have been revealed other than that Will Smith will not be returning to reprise his role. After Smith passed on joining the sequel, Fox has tried to figure out how to tackle this new installment without him and hopes Blanchard can help with that.

Blanchard is currently working on the adaptation of Mark Millar’s “Kindergarten Heroes” for Fox and also penned the script to “Spyhunter” at Warner Bros. He is repped by Paradigm and Madhouse Entertainment.
