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.

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
