New Mutants was created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod in the early 1980s and was the first X-Men comic spinoff.

The film will take a look at teenage mutants who are also a part of the X-Men universe. Young and full of angst, the mutants have to navigate between being teenagers as well as getting used to their odd mutant powers.

The main protagonists are Danielle Moonstar, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Cannonball, Warlock and Magik.

Williams will play Wolfsbane, a werewolf struggling with her religious beliefs, reports The Wrap.

Taylor-Joy will play Magik, a girl who has learned sorcery and uses teleportation discs to travel.

She is also the sister of Colossus, who appeared in Deadpool. Joy was last seen in M. Night Shyamalan's hit Split.

The film is going to release on 13 April 2018.
