Actress Vivica A. Fox, who recently offered the closest thing to a synopsis of the movie.
“The aliens are back,” she tells MLive. “And it’s about 15 years later.”
Blackfilm also caught up with the actress, who provided an update about production on the film.
“I just started this week and walking back on that set and working with Jeff Goldblum and Roland Emmmerich the director, it was like the first film was yesterday. We are so blessed that the audience has been so hungry for this sequel to happen. Unfortunately, Will (Smith) decided that he didn’t want to come back. I’m working with a young up and coming actor named Jesse Usher, who has all the wonderful qualities that will remind you of Will but he’s playing my son. I’m glad that they chose Jesse Usher and Will gave them his blessing when they cast him. So, we’re going to hold it down and the sci-fi audience are so faithful that I think the sequel will be successful.”
Fox opened up about where we will find her character in the film, who has abandoned her profession from the first film.
“I will not be on the poll. She was a stripper with a heart of gold, and who had said that she was doing it because the money was good. Now she’s a hospital administrator and she’s running the hospital and I’m glad that they moved her character forward as a woman.”
Independence Day 2 opens on June 24, 2016.
