With a penchant for the otherworldly, It Follows star Maika Monroe has landed the female lead in Roland Emmerich's Independence Day sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 21-year-old actress joins newbies Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liam Hemsworth, and Jessie Usher, and vets Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, and Bill Pullman. Monroe will reportedly play the president's daughter. Oh, and Hemsworth's love interest. Spicy — as long as she's not being followed. (Yes, we're still having nightmares.)
