OFFICIAL: Josh Boone To Direct THE NEW MUTANTS Spinoff Focusing On Younger X-MEN

Deadline reports that Fox has closed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars Josh Boone to co-write and direct The New Mutants spinoff movie.

It sounds like it will focus on a new crop of young characters like the comic by the same name. 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. Boone is set to co-write with Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner.
Boone has been linked to the big screen adaptation 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. 

"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,"Kinberg said in a statement today.
