Usher is set to play a major role in the story as the son of Will Smith’s character from the first film. Smith will not be reprising his role, but it looks like his spirit will be felt. It’s also been confirmed that Jeff Goldblum will return to reprise his role from the first film. Liam Hemsworth has also been cast in an unspecified role. Rumor has it that he could be related to Bill Pullman‘s president. So far, there’s no word on if Pullman will be back.
The sci-fi adventure movie is set for release on June 24th, 2016, almost 20 years from the first Independence Day release on July 3rd, 1996.
