Anna Kendrick is furious at Independence Day 2 for recasting Mae Whitman

30 April 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Anna Kendrick has tweeted her annoyance at Mae Whitman not returning to her role as the (now former) Us president's daughter in Independence Day 2.

Maika Monroe has been cast to take over Whitman's role from the 1994 film. She will now be the sequel's female lead and the love interest to Liam Hemsworth's character.

What the actual fuck? @maebirdwing is talented as hell, and Just proved she can carry a film. Smh. https://t.co/Njrsb7Gb1Z

Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) April 28, 2015

In her tweet, Kendrick pointed out that Whitman recently led the cast of The Duff, which opened to $10 million.

"Man. I love you to death kid," Whitman tweeted in reply.

Mae Whitman Was Replaced in Independence Day 2 and That's Really Gross, Hollywood

29 April 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hollywood, come over here so we can slap you upside the head like a mom who caught her son skipping school. Only we'll hit you harder. Fox recently announced that it had cast Maika Monroe, fresh off her star-making turns in It Follows and The Guest, in Independence Day 2 to play the president's now all-grown-up daughter. There's just one problem: the flawless Mae Whitman played Bill Pullman's kid in the original Independence Day, so why was her part handed off to someone else?! It's not like Whitman is one of those child actors who went off the rails or just gave up acting. She's now more successful and talented as ever with roles on Arrested Development, Parenthood and don't forget her »

28 April 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having established her acting credentials through The Guest and acclaimed indie horror title It Follows, Maika Monroe looks set to hit the blockbuster stratosphere as she has now secured a place in Independence Day 2.

Independence Day 2 Adds Maika Monroe as President Whitmore’s Daughter

28 April 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I had a good feeling we’d be seeing more of Maika Monroe after she appeared in Ramin Bahrani’s At Any Price, but the success of It Follows likely locked in a promising career for the pro kiteboarder-turned-actress. Just weeks after It Follows scored over $160,000 in one weekend in just four theaters and earned itself a wide release, Monroe has been cast in the highly anticipated sequel to Independence Day. [caption id="attachment_341404" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Picturehouse[/caption] Director Roland Emmerich made the announcement on Twitter, but THR also chimed in with a few more details. Apparently Monroe will be the female lead in the film, Liam Hemsworth’s character’s love interest and President Thomas J. Whitmore’s (Bill Pullman) daughter, Patricia Whitmore. Admittedly, I am a bit disappointed that Mae Whitman isn’t returning to take the role, especially when she grew up to be a talented actress, but there’s »
