Former “True Blood” actor Stephen Moyer will star in the untitled “X-Men” pilot that FOX is developing for next season.
“Burn Notice” creator Matt Nix and director Bryan Singer are behind the action-adventure project which focuses on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
Moyer will play Reed, an ambitious attorney trying to balance the demands of his job at the DA’s office with his responsibilities to his family. Blair Redford and Jamie Chung are also onboard.
Nix wrote the pilot which Singer will direct. Both will executive produce with Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
