Anya Taylor-Joy has long been rumored for a role in Josh Boone’s New Mutants, one of Fox’s intriguing new additions to the X-Men franchise. Although Taylor-Joy — like rumored co-star Maisie Williams — can’t say with 100 percent certainty that she’s actually going to be in the movie, she can confirm someone who is: James McAvoy, her co-star in M. Night Shyamalan’s new psychological thriller, Split.

It may be a while before we see another sequel in the core X-Men film series, but Fox has a few exciting prospects to keep the franchise kicking along, including Logan, Deadpool 2 and, last but far from least, Josh Boone’s New Mutants spinoff. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the writer and director says he and co-writer Knate Gwaltney originally pitched the project as a trilogy — a concept that’s hardly far-fetched for a few reasons, not the least of which being that the studio kind of needs some new and engaging X-Men properties to keep things fresh. There’s only so many times you can reboot those guys.

The future was looking bright for the X-Men franchise after Bryan Singer revived it with First Class, but after this summer’s Apocalypse, it’ll take a lot to get the mutants back on their feet. The upcoming Wolverine solo joint Logan will see Hugh Jackman comb his hair into ears for one last ride, but after that it’s anyone’s game. Today, we hear there’s a new X-Men movie shooting sometime next spring, but which one is it?

You may recall a rumor from a few weeks back that suggested several members of the lineup for Josh Boone’s New Mutants movie, and although that rumor was predictably denied by Fox, Boone seemingly confirmed those characters for his X-Men spinoff just last week.

Fox has predictably denied these rumors, Williams herself sorta-kinda confirms it in a new interview, though it sounds like nothing is close to official as of yet.
