Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton becomes the latest addition to Josh Boone's New Mutants film...
The next X-Men film to go before the cameras – and the first of three set to be released in 2017 – is X-Men: New Mutants. This one’s being directed by The Fault In Our Stars’ Josh Boone, and already recruited to the movie are Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams and Rosario Dawson. James McAvoy is likely to reprise the role of Professor X, too.
Now, there have been a couple of more recruits revealed.
Charlie Heaton (pictured), who sprung to fame in Netflix’s Stranger Things, has picked up the role of Sam Guthrie, also known as Cannonball. Furthermore, Sunspot will be appearing in the new movie, this time played by Teen Wolf’s Henry Zaga.
There’s still some casting work to be done, but production is set to begin in Canada in the next few weeks. The movie has a release date of April 13th 2018.
