Meanwhile, Will Smith’s 1996 Blockbuster Independence Day is also officially getting the sequel treatment. Jeff Goldblum and Liam Hemworth have signed on for the film, but don’t expect Will Smith. Taking over will be Jessie Usher in the role as Smith’s character’s son. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Smith’s son will be a “central character” in the upcoming sequel. Independence Day 2 will arrive June 24, 2016.
Elsewhere, Martin Lawrence took to Instagram a week ago to announce A Thin Line Between Love And Hate 2. Lawrence has just completed the writing for the script, but no actors attached were announced.
