Fox and Harry Connick Jr. It focuses on disparate groups of people who converge in the Nevada desert in the aftermath of a calamitous attack by an ostensibly powerful extraterrestrial race from an unknown origin and, along with the rest of the human population, participate in a last-chance counterattack on July 4 – the same date as the Independence Day in the United States. Producer Dean Devlin assisted Emmerich in writing the film's screenplay.
