Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) & Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) Cast In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’
Following a stellar response from critics and fans alike and a hefty box office figure of $745,570,770 million, 20th Century Fox and the filmmakers behind ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ are currently hard at work on the film’s follow-up, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ And with that in mind, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ producer-writer-director Bryan Singer last night announced on his Twitter that Alexandra Shipp will play Storm, Sophie Turner will play Jean Grey, and Tye Sheridan will play Cyclops in the May 27th, 2016 release. Shipp is known playing KT Rush on the show ‘House of Anubis’ and for leading ‘Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B,’ Turner is known for her role as Sansa Stark on ‘Game of Thrones,’ and Sheridan has starred in ‘The Tree of Life,’ ‘Mud’ and ‘Joe.’ Famke Janssen played Jean Grey in five ‘X-Men’ movies, Cyclops has been portrayed by James Marsden in four films, and Halle Berry played Storm in four films.
Back in December Marvel Studios finally confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title role in director Scott Derrickson’s ‘Doctor Strange,’ which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 4th, 2016. Today The Wrap bring word that Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor is in talks for an undisclosed role in Marvel Studios’ upcoming flick. While it’s unclear which role Ejiofor is circling, an individual with knowledge of the project insisted it’s not the villain, who is believed to be Baron Mordo, and is more likely The Ancient One.
Chiwetel Ejiofor has ‘Z for Zachariah’ premiering at Sundance this week and will soon be seen in John Hillcoat’s crime drama ‘Triple Nine.’ He’s currently filming Ridley Scott‘s ‘The Martian’ before he moves onto Billy Ray‘s ‘The Secret in Their Eyes.’ For those of you who don’t know who The Ancient One is, he’s the mentor of Doctor Strange in the comics and the previous “Sorceror Supreme”.
With the film set to premiere in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival next Tuesday, Magnolia Pictures have acquired world rights to writer-director Andrew Bujalski’s new comedy ‘Results.’ Starring Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Kevin Corrigan, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Michael Hall, Brooklyn Decker and Constance Zimmer, ‘Results’ is a “well-toned” ensemble comedy set in the fitness world of Austin, Texas. Corrigan plays Danny, a recently divorced, newly rich and utterly miserable slob who makes a stab at self-improvement by signing up for a personal trainer at a local gym. There he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Smulders). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse': Oscar Isaac Reveals That His “Apocalypse” Costume Will Be Mix Of Practical & Digital Effects
Speaking to the folks over at Yahoo! for ‘Ex_Machine,’ Oscar Isaac opened up briefly about playing En Sabah Nur (a.k.a. Apocalypse) in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ Talking about the physical requirements to bring the mutant villain to life, Isaac said, “It’ll be a mix [of practical and digital]. I haven’t had a script so I haven’t had a chance to look through the script and see what the exact requirements are, but I think it’ll be a mixture of physical, aided with some robotic technology.” Apocalypse is a massive, towering figure in the main Marvel Comics, so it makes sense that the team behind the film are going this route. He’s the most powerful mutant in the Marvel comics and the most menacing foe the “X-Men” face.
