Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum Confirmed For Independence Day 2


It sounds like Will Smith will not return for the upcoming sequel to “Independence Day,” one of the biggest summer blockbusters of all time, but Jeff Goldblum will be back to reprise his role and will be joined by another rising action star: Liam Hemsworth.

Brother of “Thor” actor Chris Hemsworth, Liam has made a name for himself with a prominent role in the “Hunger Games” series, and will now have a chance to further catapult his fame by taking part in this highly anticipated follow-up to the 1996 hit.


The involvement of Hemsworth and Goldblum was confirmed on Tuesday by Roland Emmerich, who directed the original Independence Day and is also heading up the sequel. He delivered the news on his Twitter account:

Little is known regarding plot details, but it will be interesting to see how Emmerich and Co. approach this revival of the franchise two decades later, especially without the services of Smith, who played a huge part in driving the success of the first film.

We do know that Jessie Usher, a lesser-known actor who has appeared in several TV shows, has been tabbed to play the son of Steven Hiller, Smith’s character from the original.

The Independence Day sequel, rumored to be titled “ID Forever,” is expected to be released in the summer of 2016.
