Naturi Naughton (‘Fame,’ ‘Notorious’) is set to join the cast of the upcoming Wolverine sequel.

Naughton will play the role of Cecilia Reyes, a former X-Men member and doctor with the ability to generate a forcefield that is tied to her life force. Somehow her force can be used to provide her with basic weaponry.

The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold, also stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Although reports say that Asian bombsell Kelly Hu will star in the film, she has recently denied those rumors.

Production of The Wolverine is set to begin in October. The film is expected to be released in 2012.
