The sequel to X-Men:Days of Future Past, X-Men: The Apocalypse will focus on the early beginnings of Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey. Filming is set to begin in Montreal in the spring and will be released May of 2016.
However fans of Shipp won’t have to wait a full year to see her on the big screen. She’s starring in the N.W.A. biopic (Straight Outta Compton) as Ice Cube’s wife, Kim Woodruff. It’ll be released before this summer’s out.
