Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan could be the lead, or one of the leads, in 20th Century Fox's Independence Day sequel, TheWrap has learned.

This does not mean an offer will go out to Jordan anytime soon, or ever, TheWrap cautions; it's just that he's the current front-runner.

Not Roland Emmerich, that’s for sure, considering that the German filmmaker – nicknamed “The Little Spielberg from Sindelfingen” – is planning to resurrect his two sci-fi properties from the decade: Independence Day and Stargate. The latter franchise is getting what is nowadays a commonplace reboot treatment (paving the way for a potential new trilogy), while the former will be given a good old-fashioned sequel that will include returning cast members like Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and maybe Will Smith (if negotiations work out). 9 years 2 weeks ago via donnieyen
