Alexandra Shipp To Play Storm In 'X-Men Apocalypse'

Alexandra Shipp was slammed after she portrayed the late Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B. The lukewarm response to the movie didn’t stop the movie offers from rolling in though.

The former Disney star has been snagged to play Storm in the upcoming X-Men installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits theaters May 27, 2016.  The film’s director Bryan Singer took to his Twitter to  announce the upcoming flick.
