MOVIES: The New Mutants - News Roundup *Updated 13th October 2017*



Latest News Items (What is this?)

13th October 2017 - First Trailer





29th June 2017 - Alice Braga Joins Cast as Rosario Dawson Exits

Alice Braga has joined the cast of Josh Boone’s X-Men spinoff, New Mutants.

Braga, who currently stars in USA’s Queen of the South, is stepping into the role initially inhabited by Rosario Dawson, who has exited the project. The reason for the departure is unclear.

Braga will play Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on.



2nd June 2017 - Blu Hunt Cast as Moonstar

After an international search, the final New Mutant has been found.

Blu Hunt, a relative newcomer who appeared in a handful of episodes of The Originals, has nabbed the lead role of Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath, in Josh Boone’s X-Men spinoff, New Mutants.

The last role to be filled was Moonstar, a character is who is Native American and who has the power to create illusions drawn from the fears and desires of a person's mind. The character is not only perhaps the most important in the script – according to sources, the movie’s plot leans heavily on the classic Demon Bear storyline that ran in the pages of the Marvel Comics title in the 1980s and the character is central in the script – but whose casting proved to be the most challenging as the studio and producers made ethnic authenticity a priority.



1st June 2017 - Henry Zaga Officially Cast as Sunspot

Rio's very own @zagahenry will play Sunspot #newmutants #xmen #brazil

31st May 2017 - Charlie Heaton in Talks to Join Cast

Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton is joining the X-Men family.

The actor, who plays brooding outsider Jonathan Bryers on the Netflix phenomenon, is in negotiations to join the cast of Fox’s New Mutants.

Heaton will play Sam Guthrie, also known as Cannonball, a teen who propels himself into the air (…like a cannonball) and is invulnerable while doing so.



25th May 2017 - New Details Revealed

The New Mutants, the long anticipated X-Men spinoff movie, is going to be a comic book film that goes in an unusual direction. “We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe,” director Josh Boone says. “There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different.”

Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams has been cast in the role of Wolfsbane and Split actress Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik. Sources close to the production say that Henry Zaga, seen most recently in 13 Reasons Why (where he played Tony’s boyfriend, Brad), will soon be announced in the role of Sunspot. (Unconfirmed chatter has it that Rosario Dawson is currently in talks as well.)

It’s this run of the comic that inspired what we’ll see in The New Mutants which is currently scheduled for a spring 2018 release (and shooting for a PG-13 rating). Boone is keeping mum on actual plot details, but a source close to the project explained how mutants are at their most dangerous (both to themselves and others) when their powers are new. (Like, say, their teenage years!) Says the source: “Held in a secret facility against their will, five new mutants have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves.”



11th May 2017 - Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams to Star

Anya Taylor-Joy, the star of The Witch and Split, and Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams have signed on to star in the project, the ensemble young adult super hero movie being directed by Josh Boone.

The movie is headed towards an early July start and is armed with a script by Boone and his writing partner, Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg and Karen Rosenfelt are 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.

Taylor-Joy will play Magik, a girl who has learned sorcery and uses teleportation discs to travel. She is also the sister of Colossus, an X-Man who appeared in Deadpool.

Williams will play Wolfsbane, a girl struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her power to turn into a wolf.



22nd April 2017 - Release Date Announced
April 13, 2018



5th January 2017 - James McAvoy Returning

“I have [seen the Demon Bear animatic], it’s pretty cool,” Taylor-Joy confirmed. “I’m a big fan so I’d love to be a part of it. I can’t say very much, but I would love to be a part of it. I think this year’s gonna be very exciting.”

When we asked her if she hoped to reunite with her Split co-star James McAvoy as Professor X, she replied, “I mean, I think James is already a part of it, isn’t he?”

While it was previously reported that McAvoy’s Professor X could play a major mentor part in The New Mutants, this all but clinches it as a done deal should the movie go forward.



23rd November 2016 - More Casting Information + Villain Revealed

Sources close to the production of New Mutants have provided ComingSoon.net with new information on the project, including a storyboard animatic for a sequence for the film that confirms the main antagonist: the fan-favorite Demon Bear!

First appearing in New Mutants #3, the Demon Bear is (as his name might lead you to believe) a giant bear with immense strength that draws his power from negative human emotion. The beast is also capable of teleportation and corrupting souls.

Our sources indicate the feature 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. A comparison that might make people think of this summer’s hit series Stranger Things, albeit with even more super powers.

In addition, we’ve learned that New Mutants is being targeted for a spring 2018 release date and that the previously rumored casting is in fact accurate. There’s also another familiar face being eyed for the cast of the film with Nat Wolff (who starred in Boone’s The Fault in Our Stars) as the mutant Cannonball!

31st March 2016 - Rumor - Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy in Talks to Join Cast + Alexandra Shipp to Return

And sure enough, Maisie Williams is attached now as Wolfsbane, better known as Rahne Sinclair. When I was a New Mutants fan during the initial run of the title back in the ’80s, Rahne was always one of the most emotional parts of the puzzle. She”s a shape-shifter, a wee Scottish werewolf, and her immersion into the world of Xavier”s school was part of what hooked me on the series originally.

It appears that Anya Taylor-Joy, who made such an impression on audiences in The Witch, also made an impression on producers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler-Donner, as she”ll be stepping up to play Illya Rasputin, aka Magik. That”s a great role, and it makes me laugh that you can almost read The Witch as a prequel at that point.

It looks like they”ll also be casting Cannonball, Sunspot, and Mirage, so they really are going for the most traditional version of the team, the first line-up, and that makes me extremely happy. You can expect James McAvoy to play a significant role in the film, which makes sense, and Alexandra Shipp, who plays Storm in this summer”s X-Men: Apocalypse, will make the jump to this team as well.

15th May 2015 - Film in Development

One of the biggest upcoming films your name is associated with is X-Men: The New Mutants. Earlier this year, I interviewed Simon Kinberg, who I know is something of a godfather of Fox’s X-Men universe, and is also known to be tremendously supportive of screenwriters. Can you talk about working with him on New Mutants?

We had a comic book company when we were kids. We would draw comics, staple them together, and then sell them to our uncles or whomever. And we were always obsessed with Marvel Comics through the 1980s, long before there was a Sam Raimi Spider-Man movie.

We had loved this X-Men spinoff, The New Mutants. We had loved Bill Sienkiewicz’s run with Chris Claremont that had Demon Bear. It was really dark, interesting, and different from the typical X-Men stories that we had read.

After I made The Fault in Our Stars, we made Fox a comic book. It walked them through a trilogy of New Mutant films that would build on each other. We used this program called Comic Life, and took all the images we had loved from the series and strung them together to show them the movie we wanted to do.

We brought it to Simon and he really liked it. We’ve been going for the past year and a half to get it ready, and I’m about to go location scout and we have a release date now.
