Michael B. Jordan To Star In ‘Independence Day 2?’

Will Fruitvale Station’s Michael B. Jordan star in Independence Day 2?

According to TheWrap, the actor is currently being sought out to star in Roland Emmerich’s forthcoming sequel. Although Jordan has not been officially offered the role, the actor is reportedly at the top of the studio’s list.

While Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel, the verdict is still out on Will Smith.

A rep for Smith told TheWrap that the actor’s status regarding the Independence Day sequel remains the same, meaning he’s not officially involved at this time. But according to director Emmerich, the 45-year-old could possibly return.

“I sometimes say, ‘No, Will Smith will not be in it,’ because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned where we want to talk about it again. So, anything can happen,” Emmerich told Digital Spy during a recent interview.

As for what fans can expect, the director revealed to EW that the sequel will pick up where the last film ended, but 20 years later.

“The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back. And they know that the only way you can really travel in space is through wormholes. So for the aliens, it could take two or three weeks, but for us that’s 20 or 25 years,” Emmerich said.

The sequel to the 1996 flick Summer blockbuster is set to premiere in July of 2015, but could be pushed to 2016.

HipHollywood reached out Smith and Jordan’s reps for comment and are waiting on word back.

Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’

We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.

The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.

Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.

Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
