Liam Hemsworth

With only one more film in The Hunger Games franchise left, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth (brother of The Avengers and Thor star Chris Hemsworth) is figuring out his next step, and it sounds like he may be sticking with blockbuster franchise territory. The Wrap reports Hemsworth currently has an offer for ID Forever, the sequel to the 1996 sci-fi smash success Independence Day. It's just a single film for now, despite earlier rumblings of back-to-back sequels, though if successful, we're sure 20th Century Fox would be interested in continuing the story. However, there's no details on who Hemsworth may play. Read on!

But if details on the Roland Emmerich film uncovered by Film Divider are true, then we're betting that Hemsworth would be up for the role of a hotshot pilot who is dating the daughter of former President Whitmore (Bill Pullman from the original film). Both the pilot and Patricia Whitmore (played by a young Mae Whitman in the original) are central characters in the film. If you want more details on the sequel, check out Film Divider's full rundown, which includes some info on the return of Jeff Goldblum as well. Michael B. Jordan was once rumored for a role, but we're not sure if that's still in the cards. Stay tuned.

    No! nobody cared when he died in the expendables and he is just as useless in the hunger games movies. Just get the right brother FFS!

    He is such a bad actor. I hope they dont give him a role.
