Jessica Biel cast in X-Men sequel

Jessica Biel has been cast in the new X-Men movie.

The New Year's Eve actress - who is engaged to singer and actor Justin Timberlake - will play Victoria/Viper in The Wolverine, which is a follow up to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, reports Deadline.

Jessica, 30, will share the screen with Hugh Jackman, who will reprise his role as mutant Wolverine in James Mangold's movie.

Her character is a woman who works for the corrupt minister of justice during the day. At night, she is Viper, who works for a man who hopes to control a ninja society called the Hand.

The Wolverine is due to be released in cinemas in July next year.
