On Monday, director Roland Emmerich announced that actress Maika Monroe had signed on to the upcoming sequel for the 1996 hit Independence Day.

BuzzFeed has confirmed that Monroe will play the grown daughter of Bill Pullman's former U.S. president. That character was first played by another actress, however: Mae Whitman.
