“Independence Day 2” producer Dean Devlin shared the first photo of cast member Jeff Goldblum on the set of the Twentieth Century Fox sequel to the 1996 blockbuster about aliens invading the planet, and humanity rallying to fight back.
Goldblum is reprising his role as computer genius David Levinson, who fans may remember for being responsible for saving the world alongside Will Smith. Sadly, Smith will not be back for more action, but Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Judd Hirsch will be.
New cast members include Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, Jessie Usher, Travis Tope, Joey King, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lance Lim, Mckenna Grace, and Sela Ward as the President.
Devlin wrote the first draft of the film with director Roland Emmerich, who also directed the first film. James A. Woods and Nicolas Wright wrote the most recent draft. James Vanderbilt also had a hand in writing the movie, which Emmerich and Devlin are producing with Harald Kloser.
