ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - It’s been an open secret around Albuquerque for months.

But the New Mexico Film Office finally announced Tuesday that filming will begin next month on the sequel to the alien invasion movie, “Independence Day.”

In the sequel, the nations of Earth anticipate the invaders’ return and collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet only to see the aliens return with vengeance.

The film will star Liam Hemsworth and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Returning from the first film will be Vivica Fox and Bill Pullman.

The announcement comes after production of the alien sequel had been known for months in Albuquerque. Yet the production crew was ordered to remain silent so the New Mexico Film Office could make the announcement.
