Can you hurry up already? Yesterday we learned that Josh Boone’s upcoming New Mutants‘ will be written by his fellow Fault in Our Stars screenwriters Scott Neustadter & Micheal H. Weber.
New Mutants will be the latest spin-off in the X-Men Franchise following the adventures of Magik, Wolfsbane, Dani Moonstar, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Warlock.
The writers coming on this project is exciting news for me because I adored The Fault in Our Stars. The writing pair also written on such projects as (500) Days of Summer & The Spectacular Now.
Josh Boone and Knate Lee have been working on the first two drafts and now this new writing duo will hopefully be working on the final draft/shooting script.
I’m incredibly excited for this movie because this is a film that the X-Men franchise desperately needs. X-Men Apocalypse(while a box-office success) was a step down in quality after the three previous installments.
I think New Mutants similar to First Class can be that film that reinvigorates the franchise. It has all the right ingredients: A new director, a new cast, new era. Hopefully with these new writers coming on and the guidance of Josh Boone this can be the film that gets the X-Men franchise back on track.
New Mutants is currently without a release date.
