Maisie Williams Wants to be Part of New Mutants


A debunked casting rumor for New Mutants, a new X-Men movie that's been in development for awhile (and seems to be on track to be one of the next couple films) said that Maisie Williams was among those cast in the Joshua Boone-helmed movie, cast as Rahne Sinclair aka Wolfsbane.

Well, while that may not have happened just yet (Fox whole-heartedly denied the report), Williams is definitely interested, and it sounds like she may have at least had conversations about it.

"I can't say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, to be a part of the Marvel family," Williams told EW. "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."

Again, the rumor had her as Scottish mutant Rahne Sinclair, typically the youngest member of the New Mutants, essentially a werewolf (hence the mutant name).


Williams will next be seen in the Game of Thrones season six premiere Sunday night at 9pm on HBO.
