Bryan Singer tweeted last night the new cast members in X-Men: Apocalypse. Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Tye Sheridan (Mud), and Alexandra Shipp (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B), will join the James McAvoy led X-Men team in the 1980's as young versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm.

Taking over for Famke Janssen, James Marsden, and Halle Berry, these three youngsters will join the team to take on the iconic villain Apocalypse. With Nicholas Hoult returning as Beast, this is the closest we'll ever get to the original line-up.

The production on X-Men: Apocalypse is chugging right along for its 2016 release date and we've got another behind-the-scenes picture from the maestro himself, director Bryan Singer. In a landscape of huge digital effects pictures (looking at you Jurassic World) it's great to see a blockbuster going old school with its set design.

"This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen," he tweeted. 

Frankly, it's leaving us with a tender feeling inside.

French actress Léa Seydoux from Blue is the Warmest Color and the upcoming 24th James Bond pic, Spectre, is reported to have been offered the female lead in Fox's upcoming Gambit solo film. Something of a passion project for Channing Tatum, the actor has been attached to star since the movie was nothing more than a rumor floating around Hollywood.

Léa will reportedly be playing Bella Donna Boudreaux, the daughter of the leader of a New Orleans' assassin's guild, and Gambit's first love. The two are married to unite her father's guild and the theives' guild to which Gambit belongs. Things quickly turn south and after the nuptials the card throwing cajun must flee.



Bella Donna, of course, has her own mutant powers similar to Gambit's, plasma blasts. Will she be an aide to or antagonist of Tatum's anti-hero? The best bet is on a little of both.

We'll see how Channing's cajun accent compares to the natural accent of the French actress. If she accepts the role, this movie could sound weirder than Costner's Robin Hood.
