Fault In Our Stars screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber have been brought in to work on 20th Century Fox's New Mutants script, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If accurate, it would be a reunion as New Mutants director Josh Boone directed Fault In Our Stars - and co-wrote the initial draft for this X-Men spin-off with Knate Gwaltney.
In addition to this reported firming up of the creative staff of the film, THR also says that the on-screen team line-up has been nailed down to Cannonball, Danielle Moonstar, Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Magik, and Warlock.
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.
No release date has been announced for New Mutants.
