Filming wrapped this past September on director Josh Boone’s (The Fault in Our Stars) The New Mutants, a Marvel Comics property that Boone has promised will be a “full-fledged horror movie.” He wasn’t exaggerating. Just take a look at this trailer that pegs it as a haunted house horror movie that’s been overrun by out-of-control mutants!
The cast includes Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa a.k.a Sunspot, a mutant with the ability to absorb and channel solar power; Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath also known as “Mirage”; Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on; Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik, who uses teleportation; Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball; and Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane, who can turn into a wolf.
Boone directed from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee about teenage superheroes-mutants being held against their will.
New Mutants has been set for an April 13, 2018, opening.
