Alexandra Shipp to Star in 'X-Men: The Apocalypse'

Alexandra Shipp may have one—maybe two (if you count Drumline 2)—bad movies in her roster, but she’s quickly making up for it. The actress has recently been cast to star in X-Men: The Apocalypse.

Last week, director Bryan Singer announced Shipp will star as the younger version to Halle Berry’s character Storm. She will star alongside Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and actress Sansa Stark.

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.
