Premiere Of Lionsgate's Not much is known yet about director Roland Emmerich's upcoming "Independence Day" sequel, but one bit of casting may have been revealed: TheWrap reports that Liam Hemsworth has been offered the starring role.

According to the site, the "Hunger Games" star has an offer on the table to lead "ID Forever," the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 blockbuster. It's unclear who Hemsworth would play; 20th Century Fox declined to comment on TheWrap's report.

Original star Will Smith will not be returning, TheWrap writes, though "The Fantastic Four" star Michael B. Jordan is still rumored to join the ensemble. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are also expected to reprise their "Independence Day" roles.

Last we heard from Emmerich, he had revealed that the follow-up would now be only one film instead of the originally-planned two-part sequel. He also told Entertainment Weekly in 2013 that the flick would center around life following the attack in the first film, and how the earth has rebuilt -- and is bracing for another alien invasion.
