With Will Smith officially out of the picture for Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel, ID Forever, the director is zeroing in on a new leading man. According to The Wrap that man very well may be Liam Hemsworth.
The site reports that Hemsworth has the offer to star in the movie but there’s nothing else to report at this time. Emmerich is directing the sequel, in which Michael B. Jordan has also been rumored for a role.
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.
