We reported earlier this month that actress Rosamund Pike was in talks for an icy superhero role and now it seems another actress is in talks for the part. Deadline New York is reporting that She's Out of My League actress Alice Eve is in negotiations to portray Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class.
While it was originally speculated that Pike was in talks to portray Frost, it was revealed a week later that she was actually in talks to portray Moira McTaggert, the assistant to Professor X, who will be played by James McAvoy. If Eve signs on, she would join a cast that also includes Michael Fassbender as a young Magneto and Benjamin Walker as a young Henry McCoy, a.k.a. The Beast.
Matthew Vaughn will direct the film from a script by Zack Stentz and Jane Goldman. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further updates on X-Men: First Class as soon as we have more information.
