new mutants trilogy

The New Mutants director Josh Boone is nothing if not efficient, beginning production for his X-Men spin-off film earlier this summer, releasing a trailer last week, and now revealing that the horror-inspired superhero movie is the first in a planned trilogy.

In the superhero genre, where films are planned years in advance, this is nothing new. But Boone’s pitch for a New Mutants trilogy revolves less around plot ideas than it does genre ideas — with each New Mutants movie taking around a different horror subgenre. So if you’re not on board with the Nightmare on Elm Street meets Stranger Things supernatural horror of the trailer, don’t worry: you’ll have plenty to look forward to.

Directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), New Mutants boasts an all-star cast of talented rising actors including Game of Thrones’ Maisie WilliamsThe Witch‘s Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stranger Things‘ Charlie Heaton. But it won’t be your standard superhero flick of the month — Boone promises a claustrophic, horror-inspired spin-off film centered around some of the lesser known X-Men characters.

Stephen King has been terrifying audiences since the 1970s, penning one best-selling horror novel after another, his name becoming synonymous with horror fiction in the process. Film and TV adaptations of King’s work have been prevalent just as long as he’s been publishing it, but recently there seems to be a Stephen King boom. More and more King-related projects are finding their way to the big and small screen. And that was before the adaptation of King’s It raked in boffo box office. With It making all that dough, expect even more Stephen King adaptations to be announced soon.

To help you keep track of all the upcoming King projects, either completed or in development, I’ve compiled this handy list. It’s worth noting that not all of these films will ever see the light o day. Indeed, some of them have already entered the infernal halls of development hell, and who knows when they shall ever escape. Then again, now that King is big business at the box office, there’s a good chance titles that have been stuck in development hell for ages will suddenly find themselves fast tracked.

Without further adieu, here is every upcoming Stephen King adaptation.

Charlie Heaton New Mutants

Update 2: Heat Vision reports that relative newcomer Blu Hunt has been cast as Danielle Moonstar, a Native American mutant who can create illusions based on the fears of those around her. This completes the casting of the core cast of New Mutants.

Update: Deadline reports that 13 Reasons Why star Henry Zaga has also joined New Mutants as the mutant hero Sunspot, who can manipulate solar energy. Our original article follows.

Charlie Heaton may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think about young actors from Netflix’s Stranger Things, but he’s on the verge of securing the highest-profile new movie role of any cast member since the first season aired.

Heaton is currently in talks to play Cannonball in The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone’s long-developing X-Men spinoff film New Mutants for 20th Century Fox.

new mutants horror movie

Every time a comic book movie director claims that his movie will be “very different” from other superhero movies, an angel loses its wings and gains heat vision.

But New Mutants director Josh Boone swears that his X-Men spin-off will forego all those costumes and supervillains, and go “full-fledged horror movie” instead — because horror is the new trend now. To be fair, the source material for New Mutants, the 1984 Marvel Comics storyline “The Demon Bear Saga,” lends itself to the horror genre, and we are already greatly anticipating the spinoff film anyway with the casting of Game of ThronesMaisie Williams and Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy. But Boone wants you to know that New Mutants isn’t like other X-Men films.

new mutants cast

For the first time in a long time, the X-Men movies are starting to get us excited again. Even if you ignore the brilliant Legion on FX (and you most certainly should not), Logan and Deadpool suggest a wild and exciting path ahead for the mutant superheroes. Hopefully, the upcoming New Mutants movie continues the trend.

It certainly helps that two very talented young women have officially joined the cast: Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams and Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy have signed up for Josh Boone’s movie, which is due out next year.

Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane in New Mutants

Production on the X-Men spin-off New Mutants is rumored to begin in April or May this year with The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone at the helm. 20th Century Fox hasn’t made any official announcement about the project, but there have been plenty of details that have surfaced. Now one of those details seems to have been confirmed by Josh Boone himself.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has been linked to the cast of New Mutants, though no word on her involvement has been confirmed by anyone. Josh Boone may have just done that though by sharing a piece of art featuring the actress as Rahne Sinclair, the mutant who comes to be known as Wolfsbane, due to the fact that she can transform into a wolf.

New Mutants movie

In news that will probably come as no surprise to anyone, 20th Century Fox’s New Mutants is envisioned as the first in a series. Josh Boone, who is directing and co-writing the X-Men spinoff, revealed he pitched a whole New Mutants trilogy — though of course, the studio will probably want to wait and see how the first one is shaping up before ordering any more.

Oh, and speaking of that first film, Boone dropped a little hint about what we can expect. Last month we got word Demon Bear was likely to be the villain of New Mutants, and now Boone’s new comments suggest that is indeed the case.  Read More »
