Independence Day 2 has cast Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth and Jesse Usher in roles for the sequel that follows the original from twenty years ago.
Goldblum will return as David Levinson; Usher will be playing Dylan Hiller, the son of Will Smith’s Captain Steven Hiller; Hemsworth is rumored to be playing the son-in-law of Bill Pullman's President Whitmore.
Director Roland Emmerich shared the news on Facebook.
First you strategically position your pieces, and when the time is right, you strike.” Excited to officially announce Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum as the next two pieces of the Independence Day sequel!
Excited to officially announce that Jessie Usher will be joining the cast for the sequel of Independence Day!
Trivia: My producing partner Harald Kloser noticed Jessie in between sets of pushups at the gym and gave him an audition. As they say, the rest is history!
Independence Day 2 has a June 24, 2016 release, which will not see Will Smith return, but Pullman is expected back.
Potential plot details that Emmerich previously talked about mentioned the aliens returning, but Earth better prepared as they have used the alien technology to their advantage.
