Comics are Old Habit for “The New Mutants” Director Josh Boone

X-Men fans may have reason to believe Fox’s upcoming “The New Mutants” film is in good hands. “The Fault In Our Stars” director Josh Boone, announced earlier this week as co-writing and directing the upcoming feature focusing on young mutants in need of training, was eager to share his excitement regarding the project on social media.

Perhaps as a way of showing his bona fides, he shared a “Throwback Thursday” photo of himself and “The New Mutants” movie co-writer Knate Gwaltney devouring some comics in their youth (via ComicBookMovie.com).

He shared his favorite issue of the flagship “Uncanny X-Men” title — #183 — and even highlighted the collection in which he originally discovered it.

He even shared a pic of his extensive collection of X-Men collected editions, which he had apparently removed from the rest of his library, likely as research in preparation for the film.

No release date has yet been announced for “The New Mutants,” produced by longtime X-team Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. With no fewer than five X-films due out from 20th Century Fox over the next two to three years, fans of the next generation of mutants can rest assured that their favorite teen heroes are in the hands of a creator that cares.
