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.


Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
