As a mega fan of 20th Century Fox's divisive X-Men franchise, finding out that we are going to be getting a New Mutants spin-off film set in the same universe has me over the moon excited! Now, in case you are not in the know, its already been officially confirmed awhile back that The Fault In Our Stars helmer Josh Boone will be directing this film and most likely have a hand in the writing and story development.
In a recent interview with ComingSoon.net the director revealed that himself and the other filmmakers involved with the property are looking to take this X-Men film in a way different way than the other core films of the franchise. Boone explained that they are describing the film as a "Stephen King meets John Hughes horror movie". That they really enjoyed the feeling of Netflix series Strangers Things are going to go in that type of direction with the property.
Along with this reveal, the filmmakers also shared an animatic for the film, which we have below for you all to check out and enjoy.
