Film Details & Notes: What do we know about Independence Day Resurgence?

  1. Jessie Usher, the lead of Starz's series Survivor's Remorse, will play a central character in the new film, and also the son of Will Smith's character (Captain Steven Hiller) in the original film (Hollywood Reporter, 3/3/15).
  2. In June 2013, director Roland Emmerich said Will Smith won't be in the sequel. "Will Smith cannot come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name," Emmerich told the New York Daily News. "It would be too much. We have maybe half of the people that you would know from the first film, and the other half people who are new."
  3. The new film will focus on the next generation of heroes, including the stepson of Will Smith's character in the original film.
