Deadline reported today that Fox have recruited Josh Boone to direct the spin-off of young X-Men characters called; The New Mutants with producer Simon Kinberg stating the following;
“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.”
Josh Boone directed that Fault in our Stars movie, which is great news. Not just because it was such a success at the box office, but because it was actually accessible to the general public as well as the younger target demographic. But I guess those two things work in tandem with one another.
Given the age of some of the more iconic X-Men characters in Bryan Singer’s X-Men Apocalypse (i.e. Jean Grey, Cyclops etc.), The New Mutants movie will likely consist of Jean Grey, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, and probably Jubilee. However, Kinberg’s comment that they’re exploring a “new part” of the universe hopefully means that we’ll get the original ensemble of New Mutants.
