Maika Monroe lands the female lead in Independence Day 2

04.27.2015

We may not have asked for it but Roland Emmerich's sequel to INDEPENDENCE DAY is certainly pulling out all the stops when it comes to scooping up as many actors from the first film as it can; we've got Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Vivica Fox, and Judd Hirsch reprising their roles from the original film with ID4 newcomers Jessie Usher, Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Joey King joining them. Quite the ensemble and we're not done yet, Roland Emmerich took to Twitter today and announced that the female lead of the INDEPENDENCE DAY sequel will be Maika Monroe.

You may recognize Maika Monroe from IT FOLLOWS and THE GUEST, both films which have received quite a lot of buzz in the last year. Monroe will play the daughter of Bill Pullman's character as well as the love interest to Hemsworth’s character. I'm still not sold on why INDEPENDENCE DAY warranted a sequel, especially twenty years after the original, but there's always room in my heart for another dose of alien invasion destruction porn. Bring it on Mr. Emmerich!

The sequel to INDEPENDENCE DAY will arrive in theaters on June 24, 2016.

I've fallen head of heels for Maika, especially after IT FOLLOWS. Stunning, talented and real.

The only casting problem I have is Hemsworth. The guy has little to no presence as opposed to his brother.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do... www.globe-report.com

she's a cutie

Nice to see a different picture of her for once, I only seen that one of her tied to the chair from the movie.

Right on. She's too good to be squandered on indies for the rest of her career. A big budget blockbuster should help goose her resume from here on out.

feel like she's too good for this. when i watched the guest i thought she would be a star soon, but a sequel from a 20 year old movie? i think she could have pulled off a captain marvel or a big role like that

Why not Mae Whitman?

She's the right age (duh), and she's the original actress. Monroe is a good bit younger than this character would be twenty years later.

Mae Whitman is one of the most respected voice actresses in Hollywood, and is a solid actress to boot. She was the best thing in THE DUFF.
