Kick the tires and light the fires and get ready for some of that ol’ New New. Two of our favorite movies from back in the day are back with most of their original casts. ATL, which starred T.I., Lauren London, Jackie Long, Albert Daniels, Evan Ross, Jason Weaver and the Haqq twins (now known as the Kardashian’s homies) and based on producer Dallas Austin’s life, will return with most of its original cast and its original director, Chris Robinson.
The only big star not announced yet is Evan Ross, who may or may not reprise his role. The movie’s key secondary roles, which included Tasha Smith as the twins’ mother, and character actors Mykelti Williamson as T.I.’s uncle and Keith David as London’s father have yet to be confirmed. T.I. shared some photos from the set.
Independence Day which helped propel a young Will Smith to stardom when it was released in 1996 will have its long-awaited sequel with original actors Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and original director Roland Emmerich. But Smith has bowed out of the production and will be replaced by Survivor’s Remorse star Jessie T. Usher.
He’ll play Dylan Hiller, Smith’s character, Captain Stephen Hiller’s son. No word on if Vivica A. Fox will make a cameo, as presumably, his mother. The Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth will star as well and its expected to come out on July 3, 2016.
