    New Mutants (April 13, 2018)

    Seems like Fox is planning on making a movie based on the New Mutants

    Steve: I know you guys have New Mutants and a lot of characters in the X-Men universe. Obviously you guys are moving forward on an X-Men sequel, you’re moving forward on Wolverine, do you envision New Mutants or some of these other characters as franchises that the door can be open to? It does seem to me that the superhero genre is bigger than it’s ever been, and you guys have some of the crown jewels.

    Rothman: (smiles) Yes.

    When can fans expect an announcement on some of these other properties? Before Comic-Con, after Comic-Con, at Comic-Con?

    Rothman: In the summer.

    Are you talking to filmmakers right now?

    Rothman: Let me just say this. All I have to say is, I agree with you in your assessment of the potential in a lot of these characters.

    3 Years later
    EXCLUSIVE: Fox has closed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to co-write and direct The New Mutants, a standalone spinoff that expands its X-Men movie universe. The series, already part of the X-Men Comics universe, introduces a new crop of mutant characters born with special powers. Boone will co-write with Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner.
    It is not surprising that the studio would want Boone to grow into bigger things. He came out of nowhere to direct The Fault In Our Stars, an adaptation of the John Green novel The Fault In Our Stars. The book had a rabid youthful fan base, but Boone showed a strong feel in bringing youthful pathos to the screen, and while Shailene Woodley was already an emerging star, both Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff broke through as new stars on that film. The result was a $12 million budget Fox 2000 film that grossed $307 million worldwide. Boone became a hot director right away off that success, and among the projects he has been linked to are adaptations of the Stephen King novels The Stand and Lisey’s Story. He’s also been mentioned as one of the directors Marvel and Sony have been sweet on for the live action Spider-Man franchise reboot. Next up for him is The Vampire Chronicles at Universal, a reboot based on the Anne Rice novels that were turned into Interview With The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. The Stand would go after, so The New Mutants is a couple years away.

    Said Kinberg of the X-Men expansion with Boone: “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.”
    Fox has done well mining its X-Men franchise. Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool with Tim Miller directing, and Bryan Singer is directing X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016. James Mangold and Hugh Jackman are also doing another Wolverine installment with Hugh Jackman. Behind those is Gambit, a movie that has Channing Tatum attached to star. Those are the current X-Men priorities but it is proactive of Fox to keep new films in the pipeline and to re-engage Boone, who’s repped by CAA and attorney Gregory Slewett. Gwaltney is also CAA.

    They are mutants whose x-gene recently activated(making them teenagers). They are brought in by Professor Xavier to train and learn to control their various abilities. The original team was:
    Psyche - Danielle Moonstar - empath that creates 3D images
    Karma - Xi'an McCoy - telepath
    Cannonball - Samuel Guthrie - can travel like a rocket, invulnerable while doing so
    Sunspot - Roberto de Costa - stores solar energy and can use it for super strength(an adult version of him was in Days of Future Past)
    Wolfsbane - Rahne Sinclair - turns into a werewolf

    Later they added
    Magma - Amara Aquilla - turns her body into lava
    Cypher - Douglas Ramsey - can learn anything via interpreting it as a language
    Warlock - member of the Technarchy, it is like a robotic alien race(think like a robot Groot that can speak more than 1 word, but is equally weird)
    Magik - Illyana Rasputin - sister of Colossus, She can teleport anywhere via discs. These discs actually put her in a dimension called Limbo for a short time. Limbo is a hell-like place btw.

    They had a lot of cool enemies including The Hellions(led by Emma Frost), Legion, Demon Bear, etc.

    Maybe the Phalanx can be introduced and they'll all be killed off. Or the Brood.

    Report: ‘New Mutants’ Assembles First Cast Members and Character Details

    Read More: ‘New Mutants’ Assembles First Stars, Character Details | http://screencrush.com/report-new-mutants-cast-character-details/?trackback=tsmclip


    Following the record-breaking success of Deadpool, Fox is officially moving ahead with their New Mutants spinoff with Josh Boone set to direct based on a script he’s co-writing with Knate Gwaltney. The first cast and character details have reportedly arrived, with at least one X-Men: Apocalypse newcomer joining the fray alongside Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams and The Witch breakout Anya Taylor-Joy.

    HitFix has offered the first major details on New Mutants, which will bring Alexandra Shipp’s Storm over from X-Men: Apocalypse along with James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier, the latter of whom is said to have an important role.

    As for characters not previously introduced in the X-Men universe, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams will play Rahne Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane, a shapeshifter who takes the form of a werewolf. Anya Taylor-Joy, the breakout star of indie horror hit The Witch, will play Ilya Rasputin, aka Magik. In a recent interview, producer Simon Kinberg played coy about the character’s involvement in New Mutants, making her inclusion in the film seem fairly obvious.

    Other team members will reportedly include Sunspot, Mirage and Cannonball — the latter of which is interesting as this is a mutant included in concept art for the X-Force movie lineup. Either those particular plans may have changed since Jeff Wadlow was originally tapped to write the script back in 2013 (this is likely), or there are plans to connect New Mutants to X-Force in some capacity. (Let’s not forget Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s costume in Deadpool, which was based on the New Mutants design.)

    Whew. That’s a lot of interesting info. Although Fox has not yet set a release date for New Mutants, they did recently date a mystery Marvel project for August 2017. That seems a bit too soon, given that Boone is also slated to direct Revival, based on the Stephen King sci-fi horror novel. But now that casting has already begun, it’s likely we’ll see New Mutants hit the big screen sooner rather than later.

    Based on those influences, maybe this will be about a Phalanx invasion. Aliens, body-snatching, put Hodge as the villain for the Lovecraftian horror. I can see it.

    Belasco is another good possibility, definitely.

    Got to see limbo eventually. Especially if dr. Strange does as expected for marvel studios.
