Looks like Alexandra Shipp is slated to take the reigns as storm in the latest installment of the X-Men film series, X-Men: Apocalypse, due in theatres May 27, 2016.
Shipp, most recently known for her portrayal as superstar Aaliyah in Lifetime’s 2014 biopic, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, will be joined on the silver screen by Sophie Turner, who will play Jean Grey, and Tye Sheridan as Cyclops.
X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer announced the casting earlier today via his Twitteraccount, calling the line-up “our brilliant and young mutants.”
