Nat Wolff is being eyed for the role of Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball in Josh Boone’s New Mutants.
That’s according to Coming Soon who also claim that the film will be a big departure from the sci-fi-action spectacle of other X-Men films and is instead being described as a ‘Stephen King meets John Hughes’-style horror movie.
As for Wolff’s character, Cannonball is a mutant who uses the ability to fly at jet speeds while encased in an impenetrable force field. He is likely to be joined by the likes of Magik and Wolfsbane as they take it in turns to battle Demon Bear.
Production is set to begin this Spring, but Fox hasn’t made anything official or announced a release date.
