While the Gambit movie may have lost its director this week (here), the X-Men universe isn’t slowing down…
It was revealed last night that Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the writing team behind The Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular Now, are working on the script for New Mutants.
At the minute the movie is set to be directed by Josh Boone, who directed The Fault In Our Stars, and will tell the tale of a new team of mutants who are struggling to accept that they are mutants with awesome powers. Simon Kinberg is once again producing.
The movie will focus on the angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, and Russian teen Magik. Also in the mix will be an alien named Warlock.
So that’s the writers, the director and the cast… get set for a bevy of news, casting details and wild rumours in the coming months.
