Sophie Turner and Taron Edgerton Added to 'Jean Grey' & 'Scott Summers' Shortlist

Last year we heard a list of young actors and actresses who were up for the role for young Jean Grey and Scott Summers in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. They included Kick-Ass star Chloe Grace Moretz who had even met with director Bryan Singer. Well now Latino-Review has nabbed a scoop adding even more names to the original list for both Scott and Jean along with some names for a young Storm. Apparently Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner (Who has been many fans favorite) is being looked at for Jean Grey as well as The Host star Saoirse Ronan. As for her long time crush Scott Summers FOX is eying young up and coming actor Taron Edgerton who will star in next months Kingsman: The Secret Service. Others being looked at include Jamie Backley and Tye Sheridan. Jeff Snider of The Wrap goes onto confirm this scoop stating that Tye Sheridan is the frontrunner for Scott Summers and that Chloe Mortez has since passed on Jean Grey.

Lastly, the report goes onto add two names who are up for the role of a young Storm in the X-Men feature. They include Alexandria Shipp who starred in Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B and Zendaya Coleman from K.C Undercover.
