Let's be cautious here. A couple of years ago there was news of a possible movie revival that would ignore the series, and it turned out that it was just Dean Devlin saying he wanted
to do that, and nothing ever came of it. This sounds like more of the same. Emmerich is saying he intends
to do a reboot, and that he proposed it to MGM, but he never says that MGM has agreed to his proposal. Until MGM says they're onboard, there's no reason to give this any more credence than the stuff from two years ago.
