EastEnders Star For X-Men: Apocalypse Role?
Ben Hardy reportedly in frame for Hollywood blockbuster...
It's a big step from Walford to Hollywood - but that's the move one EastEnders cast member is reportedly eyeing up.
And the 23-year-old actor, who plays Peter Beale in the long-running BBC soap, could be joined by one of Hollywood's biggest young stars as a young Jean Grey.
Bryan Singer is reportedly considering Chloë Grace Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld for the role - while Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet are also up for the Cyclops part.
The follow-up to this year's X-Men: Days Of Future Past will apparently focus on the romance between Magneto and Mystique - played by Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence.
The next film is set for release in May 2016.
