Liam Hemsworth Joins Independence Day 2

28 January 2015 11:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Liam Hemsworth has found fame with supporting roles in The Expendables and The Hunger Games franchises, but he has yet to carve out the same leading man career as his older brother Chris.

That could all be about to change however as the Aussie actor is now being eyed for a leading role in Rolan Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel (which is also being referred to as ID Forever).

Will Smith won’t be reprising the role which helped to make him famous back in 1996, but there have been rumours that Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan may play his now adult son in the movie. A cameo could still happen, but it seems unlikely when Smith is set to be so busy playing Deadshot in upcoming DC Comics adaptation, Suicide Squad.

Carter Blanchard rewrote the most recent draft of the script which was initially penned by Emmerich and Dean Devlin, »

The Wrap is reporting this evening that multiple sources close to the long-awaited sequel to Independence Day, entitled ID Forever, have suggested that The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth has been offered a role in the film.

Roland Emmerich returns to direct the sequel, which has had few drafts of the script written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Carter Blanchard (Glimmer), and will be produced by Emmerich regulars Dean Devlin and Harald Kloser.

Will Smith turned down the chance to reprise his role as Captain Steven Hiller, but Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are set to reprise their roles from the original, which grossed $810 million worldwide back in 1996. The Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan has also been rumoured to be involved, but there’s been no official word on his casting.

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up.
