Rosario Dawson drops out of New Mutants; Alice Braga steps in

The last bit of news we heard concerning director Josh Boone's "Stephen King meets John Hughes; full-fledged horror movie" NEW MUTANTS was Henry Zaga and Blu Hunt were cast as Sunspot and Mirage. 

The two joined a cast that included Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, and Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, "a mentor to the New Mutants and a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself." 

Well looks like the NEW MUTANTS are going to have to get by without their mentor as Rosario Dawson (aka one of everybody's favorite actresses) has dropped out of the flick and will be replaced by Alice Braga (aka, who?).

In all seriousness, Braga is known for starring in CITY OF GOD, I AM LEGEND, REPO MEN, ELYSIUM, and PREDATORS. Rosario Dawson's reason for exiting the flick is unknown at this time, but more than likely "creative differences" right? Am I right, guys?

Let us know what YOU think of this NEW MUTANTS switch on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

NEW MUTANTS synopsis:
