Josh Boone’s New Mutants film is gearing up to be one of 2018’s most exciting releases, and one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars has just joined his already promising cast.
Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan Bryers in the Netflix series, has been confirmed to play Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball, who can fly at incredible speeds all the while being completely covered by an impenetrable force field.
Split star Anya Taylor-Joy and Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams have already been confirmed for the film, along with Rosario Dawson, who has been killing it in Netflix’s Defenders solo outings.
The addition of Heaton is particularly exciting, given the actor has already been hard at work on Stranger Things season two, and will now have another great property to offer fans. Here’s hoping Boone will be bringing the goods with this one.
New Mutants will be released on April 13, 2018.
