Deadline is reporting that a New Mutants movie is in the works with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone. Boone will reportedly also co-write the film with Knate Gwatlney, with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner producing. No timeframe was specified for the movie's release.
“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," says Kinberg.
Boone is currently working on a revamped movie franchise for Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles book series, as well as a film adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand. Deadline reports that both of those are locked in, meaning New Mutants wouldn't begin filming for some time.
This is the fifth announced X-Men film in the works, after X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, the third Wolverine movie and the X-Force movie announced several months ago.
