The New Mutants

Quote:
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.

a series about a different group of mutants? This happened before, There used to be a series called Mutant X.

I wonder if this new series will have cameos from any of the X-Men?

I think it'll feature the Demon Bear, since I heard its part of the horror element to that Saga.

That sounds like the exact premise and pitch for the latest Fantastic Four reboot.

The whole "very different" from x-men makes sense, why else would they do something similar to it if they already have X-Men.

However I don't know any of the names mentioned that will appear in it, I know a lot of c-tier mutants and yet I don't know these...I think they're missing the potential of making c-list heroes into A-listerslike Marvel Studios did. There are tons of fan favorite mutants that aren't well known but already have a fanbase. Hell that's the word of mouth that helped deadpool.

No costumes/villains? So basically the X-Men movies?

He was a good actor, but he's gonna have to work REALLY hard to get viewers to see him as anything other than his painfully awkward and slightly creepy Stranger Things character.

New Mutants is in its final week of filming, and it looks like the Logo was revealed.

I'm looking forward to seeing the trailer.

This could end up being a refreshing new look at the X-Men, like First Class. Or it could crash and burn.

Looks like they just threw some X-Men characters into an 80s/90s horror movie. Not a fan of this approach.

On the one hand, it looks horribly generic.

On the other hand, X-Men horror seems quite interesting and a fresh take.

Gonna have to wait to see how it shakes out, I guess...
