We’ve been following the progress of the new X-Men TV series at FOX for a while now (here).
We have a cracking cast in place including Joss Whedon favourite Amy Acker, True Blood’s Stephen Moyer and Gotham’s Jamie Chung, and now we have a name too.
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner has shared an image of the cast taking place in a reading of the script (below).
So there we have it… we have a cast, a plot, a director in Bryan Singer for the pilot and now we have the name too.
The action-adventure project focuses on two ordinary parents (Moyer and Acker) who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
Acker will star as Kate Stewart, a woman who is struggling with her separation from her husband, Reed (Moyer) and her increasingly challenging teenage children. When her family situation takes a dark turn, she finds that she’s stronger than she thinks.
