Chlo Grace Moretz to play young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse?

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to introduce some more younger versions of well-known characters, with rumours suggesting that Fox is looking to recast Jean Grey and Scott Summers.

According to The Wrap, Chloë Grace Moretz is the studio's pick to play the young Jean, with Hailee Steinfeld and Elle Fanning also thought to be in the running.

Moretz and Fanning have apparently already met with director Bryan Singer regarding the role, which will likely involve a commitment across a number of forthcoming films.

Meanwhile, the report suggests that the studio may opt for a newcomer to play Cyclops, with Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothée Chalamet all said to be under consideration.

Directed by Singer, and co-starring the returning James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Apocalypse will open in the UK on 19 May 2016 and in the US on 18 May 2016.
