She Coulda Been at a Barbecue: Vivica A. Fox Joins Independence Day 2

Nothing will be as exciting as the fact that Jeff Goldblum will be returning for ID Forever, but we’re still pretty stoked that Vivica A. Fox will be reprising her role as the dolphin- and butt-kicking-loving Jasmine.
Fox and Goldblum are joined by Jasmine’s All-Grown-Up son, Jessie Usher, Probably-Tough-White-Guy-Hero Liam Hemsworth, and former president Bill Pullman. Nymphomaniac’s Charlotte Gainsbourg is also in talks for the new film, I guess because a Hemsworth’s gotta put his mouth on somebody.
ID8 takes place 20-25 years after the original film, and sees the aliens return to kick our butts—but now humans have some alien tech with which to fight back. Catch it on June 24, 2016.
