Director Roland Emmerich is prepping to shoot Independence Day 2, and casting is underway. According to TheWrap. Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games, The Expendables 2) has been offered a leading role in the sequel. There's no word on if he has accepted, but he would be stupid not to. He should feel lucky that he was even offered the role. The guy's not a very good actor.
The movie is said to take place 20 years after the events of the first film, and Will Smith will not return to reprise his role. Both Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are expected to return, though, so that's a plus! Michael B. Jordan has also been rumored to be up for a part in the movie.

The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth is being courted by 20th Century Fox to lead their Independence Day sequel, ID Forever. The Wrap broke the news earlier today, which is currently running without verification from Fox, with details stemming from more than one of their trusted sources.
Should Hemsworth broker a deal to star in the long-awaited sequel, he may also be joined by Fantastic Four‘s Michael B. Jordan, whose name was previously linked to the movie. Both actors are hitting their stride at the moment – Jordan in particular- so this could be Hemsworth’s time to shine in the spotlight… while greasing a few extraterrestrials.
At this current stage in development, these are the only new casting names connected to the alien invasion follow-up. Previous chatter has definitively ruled out any possibility of Will Smith returning as the cocksure pilot, but his two co-stars from the 1996 flick, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman, »

You can take Will Smith out of an "Independence Day" sequel, but can you replace with...Liam Hemsworth? Maybe. "The Hunger Games" star has apparently been offered a role in "ID Forever," coming in 2016. No word yet on what his part would be, or even what the story details are, but if Roland Emmerich's big plan for this blockbuster followup is to make it charisma free, he's on the right track. At least Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are expected to return. Please? [The Wrap] Rosamund Pike and Joel Kinnaman are teaming up for "The Bends." The adventure flick focuses on "a mysterious discovery at the bottom of the ocean that reopens old issues for a former combat Marine who is working to pay off his debt to the mob." Jean Luc Herbulot ("Dealer") is at the helm. [THR] Lastly, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, »

In a day filled with controversial and rumoured casting choices, this one probably won’t fire up the klaxons as much as it might. And for now, it’s still more rumour than reality, but according to The Wrap, Liam Hemsworth has an offer to star in the Independence Day sequel, currently titled ID Forever.The sequel to the 1996 alien invasion film has been bubbling away in the development pods for, well, seemingly forever. There have been various versions proposed, talk of two films shot back-to-back and endless rumours about who might return to star.With Will Smith out of the picture for now and Jeff Goldblum and Bill Paxton apparently set to return, director Roland Emmerich is looking for a new star and Hemsworth might just be it. There’s no word on what his character might be, but that’s not even worth considering unless he actually signs on to the thing. »
Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

According to the site, the "Hunger Games" star has an offer on the table to lead "ID Forever," the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 blockbuster. It's unclear who Hemsworth would play; 20th Century Fox declined to comment on TheWrap's report.

Directed by David Koepp.
Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumoured to contain a code that leads to lost Nazi gold.
When going to see a movie like Mortdecai it’s best to suspend belief and just go where the film takes you. It’s a mish-mash of slapstick humour with over the top English accents, comic violence and romance. It’s by no means a masterpiece of comedy or acting, but it is an easily watchable piece of mindless fun.
Following the escapades of art dealer/rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp), this film adventure sees him recruited by a pompous MI5 agent (McGregor) to chase down a priceless painting. Based on the novels by Kyril Bonfiglioli, »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!
Amongst this years Screen Actors Guild Award winners are Eddie Redmayne, who won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Birdman, which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Orange Is the New Black, whose star Uzo Uduba claimed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category.
Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.
It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »
