The next evo­lu­tion of the X-fran­chise is crew­ing up. Split’s Anya Tay­lor-Joy has signed to play sor­cer­ous, tele­port­ing teen Magik while Game Of Thrones star Maisie Wil­liams is Wolfs­bane, a girl strug­gling to rec­on­cile her re­li­gious be­liefs with her abil­ity to turn into a wolf. Face it, we can all re­late. They’re joined by Teen Wolf’s Henry Zaga as Brazil­ian mu­tant Sunspot – be­hold his power to un­leash a blast of pure so­lar en­ergy from a par­tic­u­larly trou­ble­some zit – while Stranger Things’ Char­lie Heaton is in the frame for Can­non­ball. Di­rec­tor Josh Boone prom­ises a markedly dif­fer­ent tone for this it­er­a­tion of the X-verse. “We are mak­ing a full-fledged hor­ror movie set within the X-Men uni­verse,” he tells En­ter­tain­ment Weekly. “There are no cos­tumes. There are no su­pervil­lains. We’re try­ing to do some­thing very, very dif­fer­ent.” No cos­tumes, then? New Mutants: Nude And Dan­ger­ous opens 13 April 2018.
