CBMB: Fox Hires ‘Fault in Our Stars’ Writers for X-Men: New Mutants

By Muuka Muyumba

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the writing team behind the hit YA adaptations The Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular Now, are working on the script for New Mutants, Fox’s X-Men spinoff.

Simon Kinberg, the studio’s steward of the 'X-Men' franchise, is producing.

The writers rejoin Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone on the project based on the early 1980s X-Men spinoff created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod. A number of characters have been featured as part of this group, but the original line-up consisted of Cannonball, Karma, Monster, Wolfsbane, and Sunspot.

We got a glimpse of the potential of these new mutants in Deadpool when Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) donned the classic New Mutant costumed look. Some very early and unreliable rumors have Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams attached to the project as Wolfsbane.

The film is not currently slated on Fox’s release schedule, but is obviously in aggressive development with producer Simon Kinberg.
