We all know that Will Smith is officially out of the picture for Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel, ID Forever, but his legacy is alive and kicking! THR is reporting that “Survivor’s Remorse’s” Jessie Usher will play the son of Smith’s character.
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. Stay tuned for more as it comes.
