Charlotte Gainsbourg

After taking on a variety of sexual exploits in Lars Von Trier's erotic Nymphomaniac, actress Charlotte Gainsbourg may end up getting probed by aliens next. Well, THR reports she's in talks for a role in Independence Day 2 anyway, even though the aliens from the soon-to-be-20-year-old film weren't really known for body cavity invading. However, at this time we don't know what character she will play, though she would probably make a good companion for Jeff Goldblum, who has been confirmed to come back as David Levinson for the sequel, while his ex-wife (Margaret Colin), seems to be out of the picture by now.

As previously reported, both Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) and rising star Jessie Usher have two of the male lead roles in the sci-fi sequel, but we're still waiting to see what other actresses will join Gainsbourg. This will undoubtedly be the actress' biggest film to date, since sh's previously starred in lower key, acclaimed dramas like Antichrist, Melancholia and Nymphomaniac (all Von Trier films) as well as The Science of Sleep and I'm Not There. Production is getting closer so stay tuned to see who else joins the cast. Fox has the film directed by Roland Emmerich set to arrive on June 24th, 2016.

I actually had to check the date to make sure it wasn't April yet. WTF? Somehow I don't see this happening...

So cool that this is coming out on my Birthday. I'm kind of hoping they get Mae Whitman to reprise her role as the president's daughter from the first film...that would be pretty cool.

Gainsbourg is quite the actress. Much better than this film deserves.

Man, you're really right on the money here!

Gainsbourg has been one of my favorite actresses for a very long time. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around this bit of news. My first reaction was, 'Oh no, say it ain't so'! Oh well, it hasn't come to fruition just yet so let's wait and see. If she does do it it'll be one of her films I won't be seeing. I just cannot imagine her doing something like this. I'm sure she'll get quite the payday for doing it, so there's that!
