3 Jun – Ng Chin Han, or more widely known and credited as Chin Han, is now part of the "Independence Day 2" cast.
Director Roland Emmerich recently took to Twitter to announce the Singaporean actor's casting, posting "Super excited to officially welcome Chin Han to the cast of #IndependenceDay2 @TheChinHan" along with a photo of the duo on set.
This will be the second time for Emmerich and Chin Han to work together after 2009's disaster fick, "2012". Chin Han's Hollywood resume also includes appearances in 2008's "The Dark Knight", 2011's "Restless" and "Contagion", as well as 2014's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".
He joins the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, Vivica A. Fox and William Fichtner for the upcoming sci-fi disaster movie.
"Independence Day 2" serves as the sequel to 1996's "Independence Day", featuring Will Smith – who is not coming back for the sequel – in the lead as he fends off alien attacks. This is not the only sequel planned as there will also be two more movies to be released after.
"Independence Day 2" is expected to hit cinemas on 23 June 2016.
