Roland Emmerich has announced he’s developing a movie about 1942’s Battle of Midway.
The Battle of Midway began on June 4, 1942 and took place over four days. Six months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States Navy destroyed an attacking Japanese fleet.
“At the time, the Americans were the underdog,” Emmerich said at a special 20-year anniversary screening of 1996’s “Independence Day”. “It was one of those moments where, against all odds, people came together and did the impossible. A lot of pilots died in this battle. I want to make a monument to them and it would be great to make a movie about it.”
