Halle Berry confirmed for X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Bryan Singer’s X-Men reunion project continues apace, with Halle Berry confirmed as the latest old face to sign on for X-Men: Days Of Future Past .

“Couldn't be more excited that #HalleBerry has joined the cast of #XMen #DaysofFuturePast” revealed Singer via Twitter. “Hopefully she can improve the weather in Montreal.”

Berry will reprise her role as Storm as part of the film’s time-bending storyline, which will see the X-Men warned of a future threat that will see mutants imprisoned in concentration camps.

The narrative will flit between the present and the future, allowing for the “older” X-Men to appear in the same film alongside their younger counterparts. Hence all the old faces flocking back.

Directed by Singer and co-starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 18 July 2014.
