For those of you who are sad about Fox holding onto the rights to X-Men and its spin-off films, be prepared for more sadness. It looks like we’ll be getting an X-Men spin-off movie called The New Mutants, according to Deadline. The movie will have director Josh Boone (The Fault In Our Stars) writing and directing.

The film will introduce audiences to new mutant heroes with different powers. Knate Gwaltney will help with the script, with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner producing.

Since the New Mutants features young mutant characters, it’s probably fitting that Fox got Boone on board, since The Fault in Our Stars is a teenage drama.

Here’s what Kinberg said of the X-Men spin-off movie:

“We’re so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe, and so excited to do it with Josh, who is uniquely suited to tell this story about young characters.”
