The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone has brought on his screenwriters collaborators Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber to write the upcoming X-Men spinoff New Mutants, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the first X-Men comic books spinoff, New Mutants will tell the tale of Danielle Moonstar, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Cannonball, and Magik as they learn to harness their powers and befriend an alien known as Warlock.

The project is said to share The Fault In Our Stars YA feel, which will set it apart from other X-Men films as they’ve focused more on action beats and set pieces. That’s not to say the film will be composed on nothing but teens talking out their feelings as the lives of the New Mutants are often in jeopardy.

It is unclear when production will begin and, as of now, New Mutants is not on the release schedule.
