The last shocking bit of news we received from Fox’s 2018 New Mutants Film was that the film was taking a turn from the familiar tone that the previous X-Men films carried on with to the horror genre. Director Josh Boone shook up fans of The New Mutants when he said that the film will be “a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe.” Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, fans might be saddened by another change up.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that Rosario Dawson has left the New Mutants Film & might be replaced by Alice Braga ( I Am Legend, The Rite). Braga will be playing Cecilia Reyes, who is “a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on.” This could be an interesting change for the film. As of right now, the cast for the film consists of Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga & Blu Hunt.
New Mutants is scheduled to hit theaters on April 13, 2018.
