Michael B. Jordan made some early waves in his roles in The Wire, Friday Night Lights, and Chronicle, has received critical acclaim for his role in Fruitvale Station, and is set to portray the Human Torch in Chronicle director’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Now, early reports have come out that Jordan is being targeted for a major role in Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day 2.
With Independence Day proving to be one of the largest summer blockbusters of all time, a major role in the sequel would be a huge career move for Jordan. The proposed script involves the film taking place 20 years after the original film and revolving around the children of the original film’s characters. Jordan playing Will Smith’s son with a potential team-up/cameo between the two in the film? I’m in.
Note: Michael B. Jordan has no relation to the Chicago Bulls star and actually doesn’t like the comparisons to Mr. 23.
