Independence Day sequel casts lead; Goldblum and Hemsworth confirmed

03.03.2015

UPDATE: Director Roland Emmerich has just announced on Twitter that Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum will be joining the INDEPENDENCE DAY sequel. Extremely pleased to have Goldblum back, I wonder what kind of virus he'll destroy the alien fleet with this time.

I honestly still can’t believe that this is happening; who’d have thought that we’d get a sequel to INDEPENDENCE DAY twenty years later? Not me, that’s for true.

THR just broke the news that Jessie Usher has been cast in the lead role of INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, a role that is said to be the son of Will Smith’s character.

Usher can currently be seen in the lead role of the Starz series Survivor’s Remorse, a show which I’ve never seen and to be quite honest, had not heard of until this moment. In the series Jessie Usher plays a basketball player who moves to Atlanta with his family after he signs a pro contract. Starz has already renewed it for a second season.

Director Roland Emmerich returns to the director’s chair and will produce the film alongside Dean Devlin and Harald Kloser. INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 will be hitting theaters and deafening our ears on June 24th, 2016.

Now onto the news I really want to know...Are they bringing back Brent Spiner's character?

didn't Brent Spiner's character die in the first movie?

cool news! I'd love to see Randy Quaid return somehow. Maybe he didn't die when he went up into the alien ship. Bring back Bill Pullman too.

Goldblum really kind of was the hero of the whole thing, so him being official is good. Would Jessie Usher be Jasmine's son perhaps? That would be preferable to some manufactured offspring for the sake of continuity. Speaking of which, bring back Vivica A. Fox. Just cuz we don't have Smith doesn't mean his wife can't still be alive. I think Adam Baldwin's Major Mitchell should make a return. Maybe he's a Colonel now. He might not need any more lines than he had last time, but still be the stoic

So now we just need a confirmation in Pullman...

And I'd be very surprised if there wasn't a female lead in the mix?

Goldblum!

Great actor... not interested in watching Liam or this new Usher guy though... my opinion could change depending on the trailers and maybe some initial reviews / box office performance.

Whys everyone beating up on Hemsworth? I've only seen him in the Hungar games movies and Expendables2. He wasn't particularly remember able in either, he was just sort of there. But at the same time I know he wasn't bad. He did the best with what they gave him in both series. To me he has yet to prove himself as a good or bad actor, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. the casting could be worse.

I don't know about Will Smith ver2.0 but glad to see Goldblum back in action

At least it's not Jaden.

And I hope we get another awesome speech from Pullman with Goldblum saving the day again.

I thought the kid in Independence Day was the son of Will Smith's character's wife.
Anyways, it's kind of a blessing to not have Will Smith there I guess. He would probably push Jaden in for the same role.
