With some of the key pieces of casting in place, Roland Emmerich’s long gestating Independence Day 2 seems to be rolling along, it only took almost 20 years. Survivor’s Remorse star Jessie Usher recently joined the film to play the stepson of Will Smith’s Steven Hiller from the first film, and Liam Hemsworth, whose name has been mentioned in regards to the film, also climbed on board along with returning star Jeff Goldblum. We’re now hearing some plot details, as well as what we can expect to call this bad boy and potential news about the future of the franchise.
Most of this report from Bloody Disgusting is information we’ve heard before, though scattered and some of it popped up so long ago we had forgotten about it (or forced it from our collective memory). First up, the film will reportedly go by the title ID Forever, which is not the greatest title in the world. This is one piece that we hoped they were going to leave in the past, but apparently that is not the case.
