Week in Review: Vin Diesel assures ‘Furious 7′ will win Best Picture

27 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Don’t you hate that each year Awards Season seems to creep ever earlier in the calendar year? God! Can’t you just go one film festival without speculating whether it will be an Oscar contender, or whether it has the legs to survive such an increasingly long awards season? Geez, I can’t imagine why so many Sundance movies struggle to make a lasting impact over a year later when conversations beating it into the ground start this early!

What movie are we talking about again? Furious 7? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ah ah ha.

Wait, really? And you’re telling me it’s over? Pack it up, we’re going home? The race is completely in the bag? This Best Picture race was done before it started? It would be like if Meryl Streep starred as Jesus and was wrongly trapped as a slave for 12 years? Except it’s Furious 7 »

'Independence Day 2' Targets 'Boardwalk Empire' Actor

25 March 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after we reported that Independence Day star Vivica A. Fox will return for Independence Day 2, Boardwalk Empire actor Travis Tope is in negotiations to join the cast. The actor will play a character named Charlie, although no further details were given. Independence Day star Will Smith is not returning, although Bill Pullman (Thomas Whitmore) and Jeff Goldblum (David Levinson) are reprising their roles from the original, alongside Vivica A. Fox.

The new cast members coming on board for the sequel include Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher and Charlotte Gainsbourg. When Jessie Usher was originally cast, it was revealed that he is playing the son of Will Smith's Stephen Hiller. However, The Wrap reports that he is actually playing Jasmine Dubrow's son Dylan, originally played by Ross Bagley in Independence Day. In the original movie, Hiller was dating Dubrow, but he was not the father of Dylan. »

Boardwalk Empire’s Travis Tope Enters Talks For Independence Day 2

25 March 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Casting on Roland Emmerich’s long-awaited blockbuster sequel continues today as The Wrap reports that Travis Tope is now circling a part in Independence Day 2. Should he lock down the gig, Tope will be the latest in a long line of franchise newbies destined to duke it out with the extraterrestrials in another global battle.

Those fresh faces include Charlotte Gainsbourg (Nymphomaniac, Melancholia), Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games series), who is expected to play the son-in-law of Bill Pullman’s President Whitmore from the 1996 original, and Jessie Usher (When The Game Stands Tall), who will bust out the quips as the stepson of Will Smith’s fast-talking pilot Steven Hiller.

With specifics on Tope’s role under wraps, there’s a good chance he may also play a character tenuously linked to the original as well. Forging a stronger connection to that first outing are a small ensemble of »

Vivica A. Fox Is Back For Independence Day 2

24 March 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The latest addition to Roland Emmerich’s long-gestating sequel Independence Day 2 is a little less unexpected than last week’s newbie. Vivica A. Fox, who portrayed Will Smith’s stripper girlfriend Jasmine Dubrow in the 1996 original, has officially signed on to reprise her role.

Emmerich announced the news via Twitter today:

Roland Emmerich (@rolandemmerich) March 24, 2015

Fox’s character had a pivotal role in the first outing that involved reuniting the First Lady with the President. Whether or not she will grapple with something a bit meatier – i.e. taking out the aliens – is unknown. One thing is for certain, whatever she does she’ll have family alongside her. No, she didn’t marry Smith’s cocky pilot and he’s definitely not returning. Throughout her story arc in the original she was accompanied by her son, »

Vivica A. Fox Returns for Roland Emmerich's 'Independence Day 2'

24 March 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the addition of Nymphomaniac star Charlotte Gainsbourg last week, the blockbuster sequel Independence Day 2 has just landed another actress, but this one should be more familiar to fans of the original 1996 alien invasion hit. Vivica A. Fox will be back as Jasmine Dubrow, the stripper who was also the girlfriend of Will Smith and one of the few survivors who made it out of New York City. You may remember that she also had a son, played by Dylan Bagley in the original film, and that's the role Jessie Usher is playing with the kid all grown up. But don't hope that Smith is back, because it's not happening. The news came straight from Roland Emmerich and Vivica A. Fox on Twitter: Exciting news... just officially closed @MsVivicaFox for #IndependenceDay!

Vivica A. Fox Joins Independence Day 2 — Does This Mean Will Smith Is Dead?

24 March 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Now that Independence Day 2 has found its leads in Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth, Roland Emmerich is beginning to fill out the rest of the cast with some of the stars from the original film. The director announced on Twitter that Vivica A. Fox will reprise her role as Jasmine Dubrow, the stripper who — spoiler! — ends up marrying Will Smith's character, Captain Steven Hiller. She joins Jeff Goldblum as the only other returning cast member confirmed so far, with Smith opting out of the sequel. Charlotte Gainsbourg was also recently confirmed to join the cast. So with this latest casting news, it's time to start speculating about what happened to Will Smith's character. We already know that his stepson Dylan will be a central character in the sequel (and played by Jessie Usher). And with his mother, played by Fox, now in the sequel, too, here's what »

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Talks For Independence Day 2

22 March 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After working with Lars von Trier on several films including last year’s Nymphomaniac, Charlotte Gainsbourg should be well attuned to dealing with strange entities that don’t want to obey rules. She’ll need all her fortitude to help with the return of an out-of-this-world menace, as she’s in talks to join the cast of Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel. Few exact details are known about the plot for the follow-up, although we can assume that there will be a return engagement with the resource-coveting aliens that humanity faced and saw off in the first film. Jeff Goldblum is confirmed to be returning, with Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher both also locked into roles, Hemsworth as former President Whitmore's (Bill Pullman, not definite, but possible) son-in-law and Usher the son of Captain Steven Hiller, as played in the original by Will Smith, who is as of now not coming back. »
