Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games”) and Jessie Usher (“Survivor’s Remorse”) have joined the cast of Roland Emmerich’s “Independence Day” sequel at 20th Century Fox. Jeff Goldblum is also confirmed to be reprising his role from the original.
Usher will play the son of Will Smith’s character from the first film and serves a pivotal role in the sequel. Smith’s role in the 1996 film helped establish him as a star.
Dean Devlin, Emmerich and Harald Kloser are producing the new film which is slated to open June 24th 2016, almost twenty years after the original.
