Nat Wolff eyed for New Mutants role

November 28th, 2016 by Marc Comments



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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
