Fox’s X-Men cinematic world is set to grow a little more with the newest generation of mutants. Deadline is reporting Fox has closed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to helm a spin-off film, The New Mutants. Boone is set to co-write the film with Knate Gwaltney while Simon Kinberg will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner.
Producer Kinsberg added “We’re so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe, and so excited to do it with Josh, who is uniquely suited to tell this story about young characters.”
Unfortunately there is currently no word on who will comprise the team. While X-Men Apocalypse will introduce younger versions of several of the main X-Men, we would expect them to take the lead in the main series. Perhaps this will give a chance to see the original comic book New Mutants appear? Cannonball? Dani Moonstar?
Let us know in the comments who you would like to see in the film!
