Casting: Liam Hemsworth Offered 'Independence Day' Sequel & More

You can take Will Smith out of an “Independence Day” sequel, but can you replace with…Liam Hemsworth? Maybe. “The Hunger Games” star has apparently been offered a role in “ID Forever,” coming in 2016. No word yet on what his part would be, or even what the story details are, but if Roland Emmerich‘s big plan for this blockbuster followup is to make it charisma free, he’s on the right track. At least Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are expected to return. Please? [The Wrap]

Rosamund Pike and Joel Kinnaman are teaming up for “The Bends.” The adventure flick focuses on “a mysterious discovery at the bottom of the ocean that reopens old issues for a former combat Marine who is working to pay off his debt to the mob.” Jean Luc Herbulot (“Dealer“) is at the helm. [THR]

Lastly, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, June Squibb, Marisa Tomei, and Olivia Wilde will “Let It Snow.” The holiday comedy “follows the exasperated members of an extended family as they attempt to gather for their annual holiday celebration.” Production is underway and this hits cinemas on November 13th. Jessie Nelson (“I Am Sam”) is behind the camera.
