Fox Enlists FAULT IN OUR STARS Writers To Pen Josh Boone's NEW MUTANTS

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the writing duo of Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber have signed on to pen the script for 20th Century Fox's New Mutants

This move is a reunion of sorts for the pair as they'll re-team with their The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone, who is helming the upcoming X-Men spin-off, to shape the script's latest draft. Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Apocalypse) is producing the feature, which will showcase an entirely new side of the X-Men films universe. 

There's no official word on casting just yet, but THR's report adds that the New Mutants lineup will consist of Danielle Moonstar, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Cannonball, and Magik, which more or less lines up with recent rumors. An alien named Warlock is also said to play a key part. With it still being early in the production process, there's no mention of Professor X, Storm, or Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who were all at one point or another rumored to have a role in the upcoming picture.

Neustadter & Weber's past writing credits include several coming of age tales, including 500 Days of Summer, The Pink Panther 2, The Spectacular Now, & Paper Towns and their upcoming slate will see them venture into slightly unfamiliar territory as they tackle the James Franco-directed comedy The Masterpiece before returning to what they know best in Luke Snellin's young adult drama Let It Snow.

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!

I hope for the Yellow cotumes ala Negasonic Teenage Warhead.

That was a fantastic rendition.

I respect and have enjoyed the X-Men franchise, but I personally think it is time to do a clean reboot before attaching other properties to the same universe.

@Knightrider - Um...Technically, the ending of Apocalypse pretty much tell you that they are in start over mode. There's no need for another 'reboot'

Other than The Pink Panther 2, their track record is pretty solid. I'm excited for this!

I have no expectations for this film at the moment. If it is released and it's good, then that would be great. If it's cancelled tomorrow, I won't care.
