Jessica Biel out of X-Men movie?

Jessica Biel is no longer attached to the new X-Men movie, it has been reported.

The New Year's Eve actress was set to play Victoria/Viper in The Wolverine, the follow-up to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but sources say that talks have broken down and that she is no longer taking the role, reported Collider.

Film bosses are now looking for another actress to star alongside Hugh Jackman, who will be reprising his role as mutant Wolverine in James Mangold's movie.

However, Jessica will still have plenty to keep her busy, as she is set to star in upcoming drama The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea and will share the screen with Anthony Hopkins and Scarlett Johansson in Hitchcock.

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