Ever since it was announced back in July, there have been rumors about Will Smith reprising his role in Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day 2. But while Smith hasn’t yet totally agreed to be in the sequel to the 1996 hit film that made his career, the production has apparently found his replacement son.

Per a report from The Wrap, hot actor of the moment Michael B. Jordan is being eyed by 20th Century Fox to star in Independence Day 2 in the role of Will Smith’s son

“Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan is being eyed for a major role in Roland Emmerich’s “Independence Day” sequel, multiple individuals familiar with the 20th Century Fox project have told TheWrap.

Jordan has not yet received an offer, nor does one seem imminent. 20th Century Fox and Emmerich had no comment, with official casting news expected closer to the holidays.

Jordan is currently a hot name right now in Hollywood as his name is being attached to everything from Rocky VII to Star Wars Episode VII and Fantastic Four.

It seems if you have a number in you movie title, Jordan is the first name you want to call. In all seriousness, Jordan is a name that is being kicked around, so any rumors regarding what he is going to be cast in outside of anything that hasn’t already been made official needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
