Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B) is set to star in the horror comedy Tragedy Girls alongside Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine).

The film will revolve around two death-obsessed teenage girls who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small Midwestern town into a frenzy and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.

Tyler MacIntyre wrote the script with Chris Hill, and will also direct. Anthony Holt will produce through The Comeback Kids with Edward Mokhtarian and Armen Aghaeian of New Artist Pictures, alongside Cameron Van Hoy and Tara Ansley. Kerry Rhodes will serve as executive producer.

Shipp was most recently seen in a supporting role in Straight Outta Compton, and starred in the Lifetime television movie, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, and the VH1 television movie, Drumline 2: A New Beat. She has also been a guest star on series such as Ray Donovan, Awkward., and The Touchstone of Ra. Shipp can be seen next in the highly anticipated 20th Century Fox prequel trilogy, X-Men: Apocalypse, where she will portray a young and troubled version of the mutant superhero Storm, one of the most interesting characters of the franchise who was portrayed by Academy Award winning actress Halle Berry from 2003 – 2014.
