Earlier this month, some of the cast of X-Men: The New Mutants were seen on location in Boston via instagram enjoying themselves. Now it seems that director/writer Josh Boone and even cinematographer Peter Deming is getting in on the fun a day before filming begins.
The working title for the film is “Growing Pains” and through a gag gift from Deming to Boone, that’s being leaned into pretty hard along with the 80’s/90’s vibe that Fox has created with its recent X-Men installments such as X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool. Boone shared a customized slate with the cast of Growing Pains on it, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Alan Thicke and Kirk Cameron. The trademark X-logo can be seen in the “O” of the title and more subtly on Cameron’s sweater.
X-Men: New Mutants opens in theaters April 13, 2018 and is said to be one of three X-Men movies to be released that year, including Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Boone’s New Mutants will star Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Blu Hunt as Moonstar and Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes.
