NEW MUTANTS Details Revealed; Will Be A Horror Movie With No Superhero Costumes

Forget seeing Magik and company in their superhero costumes when New Mutants is released; the first story details have been revealed and director Josh Boone is promising fans plenty of horror...

New Mutants has been in the works for a while now and Entertainment Weekly has today revealed the first details about what's to come in the X-Men spinoff. According to their sources, the PG-13 release will delve into how teenage mutants are most dangerous to themselves and others during their teenage years, while a brief synopsis revealed by one of the site's sources says: "Held in a secret facility against their will, five new mutants have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves."

That sounds like a lot of YA novels and movies and is familiar ground for
supehero fans. However, here's where things get really interesting; director Josh Boone tells the site that he plans on taking New Mutants to some very unique places. "We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe. There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different." The no costumes thing is likely to bother some, but that's an exciting approach.

Before you get too worried about New Mutants straying too far from the source material, Boone was quick to point out that the work of Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz has heavily inspired his take on the property for what he describes as, "a darker and more surreal and impressionistic X-Men series than we’d ever seen before. It felt like Stephen King meets John Hughes. We made a comic book with what our vision of the series would be. We love that Fox wants to make all these different X-Men spinoffs as drastically different as they can." Are you guys excited for the New Mutants movie?
