If you can’t get Will Smith, you get the next best thing: his stripper wife from the first movie.
Roland Emmerich has revealed via his Twitter feed that Vivica A. Fox will be reprising her role of Jasmine Dubrow, the wife of Will Smith’s character in the first film. With the plot of the new film involving the son of Will Smith’s Steven Hiller character it makes sense that at least one family member would be present for the sequel. I just wonder how they’ll address the absence of Hiller. It’d be a tragic turn of events if he survived the alien invasion only to be killed through some random incident.
Vivica joins fellow returning cast member Jeff Goldblum and new cast members Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth. The film is expected to hit theaters on June 24th, 2016.
