NEW MUTANTS Casting Call Might Just Hint At A Principal Role For Another Original Team Member

A new casting call has gone out for Josh Boone's New Mutants movie, and in addition to what seems to be a younger version of Magik, they may just be looking for an actress to play Karma...

As we know, the main cast of Josh Boone's X-Men spinoff, New Mutants, has already been assembled, with Magik, Sunspot, Mirage, Cannonball, Wolfsbane and Warlock making up the roster of young heroes. However, could the movie also feature an appearance from another founding team member?

A casting call has surfaced over at Project Casting (via Omega Underground), and in addition to what is almost certainly a call for an actress to play a younger version of Illyana Rasputin, AKA Magik, it may also suggest that Boone is seeking someone to portray Xi’an Coy Manh, aka Karma:


SEEKING: [These are principal roles…]

YOUNG ANNA – Female, 9 – 12; preferably blonde, or willing to temporary color; Russian accent or Russian language skills.

YOUNG FEMALE – 18 to 22 years old; Asian Scheduled to shoot in MA for one or more days between 7/20 and 8/16.

Of course, Karma is not the only possibility - there's also speculation that it could be Hisako Ichiki/Armor, for example - but the fact that it's a "principal role" does make it a pretty good bet.

What do you guys think? Drop us a comment in the usual place.

UPDATE: It sounds like they're also looking for an "extremely tall and skinny" actor to play Warlock via motion capture.
