Vivica A. Fox has confirmed that filming has started on Independence Day 2 and has even spilled some of the details of the story.
Fox played Jasmine Dubrow/Hiller in the first movie and has said it’s been pretty strange coming back on set of a movie she filmed almost 20 years ago.
“The aliens are back and it’s about 15 years later…” ok, this we gathered so far… “I just started this week and walking back on that set and working with Jeff Goldblum and Roland Emmmerich the director, it was like the first film was yesterday.
“We are so blessed that the audience has been so hungry for this sequel to happen. Unfortunately, Will [Smith] decided that he didn’t want to come back. I’m working with a young up and coming actor named Jesse Usher, who has all the wonderful qualities that will remind you of Will but he’s playing my son. I’m glad that they chose Jesse Usher and Will gave them his blessing when they cast him. So, we’re going to hold it down and the sci-fi audience are so faithful that I think the sequel will be successful.”
Oh and she’s not a stripper any more… “Now she’s a hospital administrator and she’s running the hospital and I’m glad that they moved her character forward as a woman.”
Judd Hirsch bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Jessie A. Usher, Liam Hemsworth, and Charolette Gainsbourg star in the alien fighting sequel.
