It's looking like Bryan Singer will indeed be the source for casting confirmations for X-Men Apocalypse. The director has released casting news via Twitter in the past and is now doing the same for Apocalypse he recently announce Oscar Isaac as the titular villain.

Now he's confirmed Latino Review's casting scoops naming Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Mud's Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers and newcomer Alexandra Shipp as Storm.
Let's just remember the film is set in 1983 and the recasting with younger actors was going to happen. There was confirmation from Patrick Steward that neither he or Sir Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles in the film which makes perfect sense for it's setting.
The returning cast includes Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult and Even Peters.
Shooting begins sometime in April with production returning to Montreal.
