Most of the casting news for Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day 2 has understandably been focused on who’s coming back, but there’s some very exciting news about a new character.
Emmerich announced on his Twitter account that It Follows and The Guest star Maika Monroe has signed on to join Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A Fox, Judd Hirsch and Brent Spiner.
I have another addition to announce. The beautiful & talented Maika Monroe is officially signed on 2 the Independence Day Sequel!

Independence Day 2 is released on 24 June 2016 in the UK. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
