The Beverly Hills Chamber Of Commerce Hosts EXPERIENCE: East Meets West EventMore of the old "Independence Day" gang is getting back together.

Director Roland Emmerich tweeted that Vivica A. Fox is on board to reprise her role in "Independence Day 2," making her the second original cast member aside from Jeff Goldblum to return for the sequel. In the 1996 movie, Fox played exotic dancer Jasmine Dubrow, a single mother to young boy Dylan. In the sequel, a grown-up Dylan (Jessie Usher) is part of the next generation fighting off an alien invasion. Liam Hemsworth plays the son-in-law of former President Whitmore (Bill Pullman).

"Independence Day" star Will Smith will not be appearing in the sequel, though Pullman's involvement is likely.

"Independence Day 2" is set for release on June 24, 2016, two decades after the original.
