Jeff Goldblum has revealed he’s set for a return to fighting extra-terrestrials in a big screen sequel to Independence Day.

The 61-year-old actor – who played scientist David Levinson in director Roland Emmerich’s original 1996 blockbuster – says he’s in talks for a follow-up movie.

The star told journalists he has met with both Levinson and the movie’s writer Dean Devlin.

Goldblum revealed: “I haven’t read anything, but I have had a talk or two and a little meeting with Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich, and they have ideas about doing it and an interest in doing it and are trying to cook something up from what I gather.

“They told me a little bit about it and it seems I have something that might occur. I look forward to that and we will see how it goes, fingers crossed.”

However, it seems like Goldblum WON’T be appearing in the next movie in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World (Goldblum says he wasn’t asked).

Independence Day also starred Will Smith as hero pilot Captain Steven Hiller and Bull Pullman as The President of the United States.  Serious rumours of a sequel first began to surface eight months ago.

Pullman is also tipped for a return, but it is romored that Will Smith’s fees may be too high for the project – although movie fans are obviously hoping that studio bosses find a way of reuniting all three.

The original movie grossed over $800,000,000, which at the time was the 2nd highest earning movie ever.
