Life just keeps getting sweeter for former 3LW member Naturi Naughton. According to reports, the singer-actress has been tapped to join The Wolverine, the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which will be directed by James Mangold and will star Hugh Jackman and Kelly Hu.
Shadow and Act reports that Naughton will play Cecilia Reyes, who is a “doctor and former X-men member. She is able to generate a force field that is tied to her life force.”
Production for The Wolverine begins this October and will hit theaters summer 2012.
Naughton has witnessed a huge career boost since leaving the now defunct platinum-selling group 3LW. With big roles in films like Notorious, Fame, Lottery Ticket and the upcoming Highland Park, there seems to be no signs of stopping for the entertainer. She’s also currently starring in NBC’s controversial “Playboy Club.”
