Magic Mike XXL has already begun filming, and the final cast has been slowly revealed: Matthew McConaughey is out. Andie MacDowell is in. And now, another female lead has been cast for the sequel. Amber Heard has been hired as one of the film’s new leads, EW has learned.
Details remain unknown about Heard’s character, but she joins a continually growing cast that also includes returning lead Channing Tatum for what has been described as an “on-the-road adventure.”
Heard can next be seen alongside her Friday Night Lights costar Billy Bob Thornton in London Fields, while XXL will arrive just in time for Independence Day when it hits theaters on July 3, 2015.
