X-Men spin-off, New Mutants Is Gaining Steam

It may come as a shock to many, but there are still some mutants that have not yet made it to the big screen: Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod’s X-Men spin-off, New Mutants, being one of them.

The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone has been on board to helm New Mutants for a while, and has now brought some more Faults alumni into the X-world. Its screenwriting team Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber will be penning 20th Century Fox’s upcoming super-spin-off about the young bunch of ragtag mutants trained by (at different points over the comic's 1983-1991 run) Cable, Magneto and Professor X.

Neustadter and Weber are an inspired choice for the material, having connected with many a young cinemagoer thanks to their work on (500) Days Of Summer, Paper Towns and The Spectacular Now. They also have the upcoming James Franco-directed The Masterpiece on their slate: a behind-the-scenes look at Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic, The Room.

Simon Kinberg is back on producing duties, but the cast (and film’s central characters, of which there are many to choose from) is yet to be confirmed. Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy are heavily rumoured as the gifted youngsters, with Boone’s Instagram account appearing to hold the key to the mutants he hopes to include.

A lifelong fan of New Mutants, Boone is currently a very busy man. As well as his X-entry, he is tasked with bringing a new version of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles to the big screen, and is writing and directing two Stephen King adaptations: The Stand and Lisey’s Story.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Featurette “Legacy”

Watch the new “Legacy” featurette, as Kevin Feige joins other filmmakers and the cast of Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR to chronicle the growth and success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its auspicious beginning with “Iron Man” in 2008 to the upcoming tour de force “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.”

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

David Leitch Directing Hobbs & Shaw Spin-Off

As Universal guns the engine on the first planned spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise, the studio has pinpointed the person it wants to wrangle Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham for the film. John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is directing the film.

It makes sense that a film featuring the two would demand a director who has proven they can bring action scenes to life, and Leitch – who moved from stunt co-ordination and second unit work to co-direct the first Wick with Chad Stahelski – has certainly shown he's got the flair for it.

Chris Morgan has written the script for the new film, which doesn't yet have a name, but should boast Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Statham's recently redeemed Deckard Shaw on their own mission, minus any candy asses. Universal wants this one in cinemas for July next year, and so it needs the wheels to hit the road quickly.

Leitch's most recent job was directing Deadpool 2, which opens in the UK on 16 May and has jus…
