Vivica A. Fox Joins ‘Independence Day 2’

Roland Emmerich has cast Vivica A. Fox in “Independence Day 2” to reprise her role as Jasmine Dubrow from the 1996 original.

Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher and Charlotte Gainsbourg have already been cast. 20th Century Fox has dated the sequel for June 24, 2016 — nearly 20 years after the original.

“Survivor’s Remorse” star Usher was cast earlier this month in the lead role, playing the son of Will Smith’s Steven Hiller character from “Independence Day.” Smith is not expected to appear in the sequel.

Fox’s Jasmine Dubrow portrayed a single mother who was an exotic dancer and Steven Hiller’s girlfriend in the original.

Emmerich will return to helm “Independence Day 2″ from a script by Carter Blanchard. Dean Devlin, Emmerich and Harald Kloser are producing.

Emmerich and Fox both revealed Fox’s casting via Twitter.
