Do you hear that? That’s the sound of the X-Men movie series getting its second wind.

And that’s before we even talk about FX’s Legion series, which has been very intriguing so far. Audiences have made themselves clear: they love the X-Men, especially when they’re delivering something off the beaten path…which means it’s time for the core series to get with the program and try something different.

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.
