Not long ago, we got word that Maisie Williams was up for the role of Rahne Sinclair aka ‘Wolfsbane’ in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming New Mutants film. Shortly after, the rumors regarding these casting decisioons were denied the studio but we all know how that goes. However, the actress has now commented on the rumors while speaking with Entertainment Weekly and might have seemingly confirmed that discussions regarding her joining the film’s cast have occured.
I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family. New Mutants looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs and [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.
Sounds like Williams has definitely had some chats about joining the film’s cast. Co-writer & director Josh Boone recently turning in a second draft of the film’s script and it’s looking like the film might be gearing up to kick off production and taking one of Fox’s “untitled” 2017 or 2018 slots. So, I definitely wouldn’t be surprised if we get some solid info one this one very soon. Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.
