Roland Emmerich confirms Bill Pullman will return for Independence Day 2

To Roland Emmerich's credit, he's going to great lengths to make up for the lack of Will Smith in INDEPENDENCE DAY 2. Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Vivica Fox, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Jessie User have already signed on for lead roles, but fan favorite Brent Spiner has also been confirmed, and we have another big member of the first movie making a return trip. The president himself, Bill Pullman, will be appearing in INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, as well as Judd Hirsch, who played Goldblum's father in the first one.

Here's the announced from director Roland Emmerich:

While I think Will Smith really would have brought this sequel to another level, I'm sure Emmerich will bring that sense of fun and ridiculouslness he excells aty to this flick. If anything, it'll be interesting to see how they try to top the scope of the ships from the first film. It can't just be a case of "They're back, and they're REALLY pissed!" At least, I would hope not.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 will hit theaters on June 24, 2016.

I wonder what the political situation is like in the sequel, knowing that in this universe 9/11 wouldn't have happened.

Why the fuck would you want to make a sequel to this so many years later. We've seen better alien films and tv shows throughout the years. We don't need this film and we don't want it!

I hope they approach and present this sequel as a tribute to the, now, classic, 1996 movie.

Still wondering why Will Smith still won't sign on? I know he is filming Suicide Squad now, but he needs a career booster. If not he will turn into another Bruce Willis or Nicolas Cage.

Goldblum, Spiner, Hirsch and Pullman. That's who I wanted more than anyone and that's who we're getting. Can't wait!

I'm sorry, but I just don't hold much hope for this sequel. For one thing, it's rare that a sequel coming out about 20 years after the original rarely works (i.e. Dumb and Dumber To). And second, where else do you really need to take this story. They defeated the aliens at the end of the first one, what else do you do aside from more aliens coming back for revenge? Or just another group of aliens that happen to want to invade Earth 20 years later by coincidence?

Not fair to compare different genres, but I get your point.
