New Mutants Josh Boone Maisie Williams Banner

Last month a report surfaced claiming that Josh Boone's NEW MUTANTS movie will feature Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane/Rahne Sinclair and THE WITCH's Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik/Illya Rasputin, while James McAvoy will reprise his role as Professor X in the X-Men spinoff. FOX quickly denied the report shortly after it was published, but here's what Williams had to say to Entertainment Weekly after being asked about the casting rumors.

I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family.  New Mutants looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs and [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.

It might not be a done deal, but maybe Williams is, at the very least, being eyed to play Wolfsbane, and it certainly sounds like she's down for joining the X-Men movie universe. Boone recently turned in a second draft of the script, and FOX has set release dates for two untitled Marvel films, so I wouldn't be surprised if a NEW MUTANTS announcement is made at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. How do you feel about Williams possibly playing Wolfsbane?

The only problem I see with the New Mutants idea is, the core X-Men team are already all young right now. There would be almost no difference between both team other than the powers used.

I'm sure the New Mutants movie would take place in present day, just like how Deadpool was and how Gambit will probably be.

when you start off with "I cant say much about it" you basically confirm you are either A) involved or B) in talks to be involved. If you weren't you wouldn't be bound by an NDA

Fox must be huge fans of Game of Thrones considering they've already used two main actors already from the series.

Also not a lot of actors in the under 20 crowd with any sort of name recognition, let alone a fan following.
