Title For INDEPENDENCE DAY Sequel Revealed
Jeff Goldblum cemented his position as Hollywood's go-to A-List boffin/sceptic during the 1990s, thanks to his role as Chaos Theorist Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park and The Lost World, as well as in Independence Day. Goldblum will be reprising his role as David Levinson for IDR (which I'm guessing we are to call the sequel to ID4), alongside Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner and Vivica A. Fox. New additions to the cast include Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, William Fichtner, Angelababy and Grace Huang. The casting of those last two delectable actresses suggests at least some of the action will take place in or around the Hong Kong/China region.
Shooting began in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the film is scheduled to hit cinema screens on 24 June 2016.
The official synopsis goes like this:
