'The Fault in Our Stars' Josh Boone to Direct Fox's 'New Mutants'
Deadline has reported that Fox plans to bring the New Mutants franchise to the big screen as they expand their X-Men universe.
The Fault in Our Stars was a massive hit for Fox, and they have been dedicating a lot of money into expanding their "X" franchises. X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool are releasing in 2016, with Gambit to follow soon afterwards. There is an X-Force film currently under development as well.
Seeing as Deadpool's first appearance was actually in the pages of New Mutants #98, I wonder if he will be brought into the film to give it an established character for moviegoers. The New Mutants team consisted of mostly younger mutants, and many of which became full fledged X-Men themselves later on. It will be interesting to see how this team is approached, relative to the established canon from Bryan Singer and company's films.
