According to reports, director Josh Boone ("The Fault In Our Stars") will co-write a screenplay and direct Fox' next "X-Men" movie spinoff "The New Mutants", for producers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner, based on the Marvel Comics' 1982 teenage superhero team , created by writer Chris Claremont and illustrator Bob McLeod:
"The New Mutants" were teenaged students of 'Professor Charles Xavier' and his 'School for Gifted Youngsters', much like the original 'X-Men', who had since grown into adulthood.
Original members included 'Samuel Guthrie' aka 'Cannonball', a mild-mannered Kentuckian and eventual co-leader, who became invulnerable when rocketing through the air;
'Xi'an Coy Manh' aka 'Karma', a 19-year-old Vietnamese girl and the team's original leader, who can mentally possess other people's bodies;
'Danielle Moonstar' aka 'Mirage'/'Psyche', a Cheyenne who can create visual empathic three-dimensional illusions;
'Roberto da Costa' aka 'Sunspot', a Brazilian who gained superhuman strength fueled by sunlight, with the ability to store solar energy in his body;
'Rahne Sinclair' aka 'Wolfsbane', a Scot who can transform into a wolf-like creature.
