Oscar Isaac On Motivations And Missions In X-men: Apocalypse

18 hours ago | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The supremely talented Oscar Isaac was recently a guest on the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast recently and briefly touched on his work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and X-Men: Apocalypse. On the latter, Isaac confirmed that he's already begun filming for Apocalypse and that he's still digesting the script and developing his take on the character.  "I’ve been reading the script a lot and trying to come at for me, a interesting angle. Definitely focusing on the fact he is the embodiment of the second coming of the judgments of god and that energy going in. We’re playing with that. What we are trying to do is make his philosophy and what his mission is, one that is both simple but also holds water, that really makes sense throughout the whole movie. I think Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer, we’ve been able to come up with something very cool. »

Marvel's "The New Mutants"

14 May 2015 3:51 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

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, »

X-Men: new spin-off, The New Mutants, confirmed

13 May 2015 10:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Josh Boone, who helmed The Fault In Our Stars, is to direct a brand new X-Men spin-off movie...

Fox currently has at various stages of production four new X-Men-related films. Deadpool has nearly finished shooting, X-Men: Apocalypse is filming in Canada, Gambit should be up and running by the end of the year, and The Wolverine 3 will go before the cameras next year.

And now you can add a fifth new X-Men project to the list: The New Mutants.

This is to be a standalone (at least for the time being) spin-off movie, that'll introduce a fresh bunch of mutants to the big screen. The focus will be on young characters, and Fox has hired Josh Boone, who helmed The Fault In Our Stars, to direct the new movie.

Boone will also co-write The New Mutants, along with Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg, one of the overseers of Fox's comic book movies, »

Fault in Our Stars Director Lands X-Men Spinoff; Also, There’s Going to Be an X-Men Spinoff

13 May 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You may have noticed that the Avengers, DC Comics, and Star Wars all have cinematic universes that tie films together in increasingly complex and lucrative ways — why hasn't Fox done that for the X-Men? Fox apparently had the same thought: Deadline reports that the studio has hired Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone to make a stand-alone film about the New Mutants, an X-Men spinoff group of international students from Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. The New Mutants are both more diverse and more "teen" than the regular X-Men, which producer Simon Kinberg said makes Boone "uniquely suited" to direct. He's already got The Vampire Chronicles and The Stand on his docket, though, so this New Mutants film is probably years away — anybody know any talented Vietnamese 10-year-olds who can play Karma? »

'X-Men' Spinoff 'New Mutants' Planned, Director Announced

13 May 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox has closed a deal with filmmaker Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) to co-write and direct a new stand alone X-Men spinoff entitled The New Mutants. The filmmaker will co-write the screenplay with Knate Gwaltney (Kidnap), with Simon Kinberg set to producing alongside Lauren Shuler Donner. Here's what Simon Kinberg had to say about Josh Boone coming on board in a statement.

"We're so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe, and so excited to do it with Josh, who is uniquely suited to tell this story about young characters."

This adventure will introduce a new crop of mutants, although it isn't exactly clear which ones will be used in this adaptation. First introduced in a 1982 Marvel graphic novel, The New Mutants received their own monthly comic book in 1983, with the team comprised of much younger mutants who all attended Professor Xavier's school. »

Fox announces X-Men spin-off The New Mutants, Josh Boone to direct

13 May 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not content with the upcoming spinoffs Deadpool and Gambit, 20th Century Fox has announced it is expanding the X-Men universe further with The New Mutants, with Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) signing on to direct and co-write.

“We’re so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe, and so excited to do it with Josh, who is uniquely suited to tell this story about young characters”, producer Simon Kinberg tells Deadline.

The New Mutants was created in 1982 by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod and centres around a team of young mutants in training. There’s been a revolving roster over the years, with previous members including the likes of Kitty Pryde, Wolfsbane, Magik, Sunspot, Blink, Cannonball and Warpath.

It would seem the spinoff movie could be a while away yet, as Boone is currently attached to the Anne Rice reboot The Vampire Chronicles, as well »

Fox Announces X-Men Spinoff 'The New Mutants'

13 May 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Josh Boone's career is off to a fast start, beginning with the success of The Fault in Our Stars, which then translated into a gig adapting Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles at Universal and plans for an adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand" at Warner Bros. Now he's taking on another big project at another major studio as he will begin work on the X-Men franchise spinoff The Mutant Chronicles at Fox, which he will direct and co-write with Jackass producer Knate Gwaltney. The New Mutants is a group of teenaged mutant superheroes-in-training including characters such as Cannonball, Karma, Mirage, Sunspot and Wolfsbane and apparently served as the comic introduction to Deadpool, which may hint at a possible tie-in with the upcoming movie starring Ryan Reynolds. "We're so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe," producer Simon Kinberg told Deadline. "And so excited to do it with Josh, »

Fox is Bringing The New Mutants to the Big Screen with Josh Boone

13 May 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters next year, along with a few other X-Men spin-offs, but Fox isn't stopping there and looking ahead to bringing The New Mutants to the big screen, hiring director Josh Boone for the job.  Come inside to learn more.  

Fox is serious about their X-Men franchise and making it as big as they can.  With Deadpool, Gambit, and X-Men: Apocalypse movies all hitting within the next year, they're not wasting any time.  But we've been hearing that Apocalypse will be the end of a "era" of sorts, with Bryan Singer closing out his X-Men story, and many of the cast members saying their done afterwards (Fassbender, McAvoy, Lawrence, etc).  Even with some solid solo movies in the works, Fox is going to need a team of some sort to keep the X-Men franchise (and fans) still going.  To that end, it sounds like The New Mutants is the answer. »

'Fault In Our Stars' director set to expand Fox's universe with 'New Mutants'

13 May 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So confession time: of all of the books Marvel has ever published about any of the characters in the X-Men universe, "The New Mutants" remains my very favorite. Part of that was timing. I was 13 when the series began publication, and I was already a fan of the X-Men. My best friend at the time was a comic nerd the way I was a movie nerd, and he knew my tastes well enough that when the book was about to launch, he urged me to make sure it was on my pull list. It blows my mind that Chris Claremont was basically forced to create the series under duress. From the moment the book launched, I was all aboard for the story of a group of kids who were recruited to attend Xavier's school. At that point, the original X-Men were all adults, and this was a chance for Marvel »

While X-Men: Apocalypse is introducing younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, and Storm, you have to imagine that they'll be taking over the main X-Men franchise.

Simon Kinberg will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner.   Boone has been linked to the big screen adatation of Stephen King's The Stand, while the site mentions that he's among those who have been considered for Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man reboot.

X-Men Franchise Expands With The New Mutants Spinoff; Josh Boone To Direct

13 May 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As part of its effort to grow the X-Men into an expansive cinematic universe, Fox has inked a deal with The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone to co-write and direct The New Mutants, a standalone spinoff that will introduce a new generation of exceptionally gifted youngsters who could potentially join forces with the X-Men in future films.

Knate Gwaltney, a supervising producer on Loiter Squad who wrote the upcoming thriller Kidnap, will co-write the pic.

Though Boone, who made his debut with romantic drama Stuck in Love, may seem like an odd choice to delve into superhero territory, he’s been a hot commodity for years now and is hard at work over at Warner Bros. on an ambitious, multi-film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand. The helmer reached out to King and became friendly with the writer, who also set Boone to work on an adaptation of Lisey’s Story. »
