Casting directors for ID 2 are looking for New Mexico locals to fill small, non-speaking background roles in the production.

All roles are paid and those cast can expect to make around $72 per 8 hour day on set with overtime being paid if the shoot goes over 8 hours. Only talent living in the Albuquerque area is being considered for the background roles. Please see the casting details below for more information on how to submit for the parts.
The sci-fi, alien invasion flick is reported to be a 2 movie deal with the first film in production this summer and due to be released in theaters July, 2016. Roland Emmerich is directing the new “Independence Day” movie from a screenplay written by Carter Blanchard. “Independence Day Resurgence” will be set 20 years after the original “Independence Day“, July, 2016. Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Judd Hirsch and Bill Pullman will all be returning for the long awaited sequel. Also in the new cast are Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liam Hemsworth, William Fichtner, Jessie Usher and according to the ID2 IMDB page, Maika Monroe will be playing Bill Pullman’s, adult daughter, Patricia Whitmore. Bent Spiner is also listed as part of the ID2 cast. Spiner’s Br. Okun character was killed in the original “Independence Day“… but 20 years later, seems the Dr. will be coming back. While Will Smith, or his character will not be returning for the sequel, his son will. A previous ID2 casting call mentioned that Captain Steven Hiller’s, now adult son, is part of the film and is a pilot taking part in the fight to save planet Earth.
Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction. – IMDB
