Back in September it was announced that [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267) will conclude the trilogy which began with X-Men: First Class and continued in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Furthermore, it was announced that the studio is searching for a young Jean Grey (although it isn’t known yet whether this young actress will appear in the franchise beyond X-Men: Apocalypse).
Insiders say that the studio is now eyeing Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass) and Elle Fanning (Maleficent), who have already met with director Bryan Singer. Another actress is also wanted for the role, her being Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit). From these three, Elle Fanning has the least chances of being cast, since she is not particularly interested in the role.
But these are only three of the actresses that are being pursued for portraying a young Jean Grey. The screen tests haven’t been made yet, so at this moment anything goes.
As far as we are concerned, out of these three Hailee Steinfeld seems like the best choice to be made.
Which one seems the best choice to you? Do you have other preferences? Let me know in the comments section.
