“I gave it a cold… I gave it a virus. A computer virus.”
I didn’t bat an eye when it was revealed that Will Smith wouldn’t be returning for Independence Day 2. Why? Because the best character in Roland Emmerich’s 1996 disaster film is clearly David Levinson, played by Jeff Goldblum.
It was announced today that Goldblum will be returning to for alien war alongside “Survivor’s Remorse’s” Jessie Usher and The Hunger Games‘ Liam Hemsworth.
Goldblum has secured by excitement.
Fox hired Carter Blanchard (Glimmer) to rewrite the script. James Vanderbilt wrote the first draft of the film, which Emmerich is producing with Dean Devlin and Harald Kloser.
Independence Day 2 is set for release on June 24, 2016 — almost exactly 20 years from when the first film hit theaters on July 3, 1996.
