<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> NEW MUTANTS Casts Maisie Williams As Wolfsbane And  Anya Taylor-Joy As Magik

We might finally have some movement on Josh Boone's junior X-Men spinoff, as rumor has it Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams and The Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy have been cast in key roles.

Drew over at Hitfix has done some digging, and may have turned up some very interesting new details on Josh Boone's planned New Mutants movie - including the first two actors that have been cast.

According to him, Maisie Williams will be joining her Game of Thrones castmate Sophie Turner in the X-Universe as Rahne Sinclair, AKA shape-shifting werewolf girl Wolfsbane; and The Witch breakout star Anya Taylor-Joy will be portraying Illyna Rasputin, AKA demon sorceress Magik. Plus, it sounds like Alexandra Shipp will be making the jump from the main X-Men roster as Storm.

Other characters said to be included, but not yet cast, are Cannonball, Sunspot, and Mirage - who actually make up the original Marvel Comics roster along with Karma. James McAvoy’s Professor X will also play significant part in the story apparently.

This has yet to be confirmed so take it as a rumor for now, but let's hope this pans out because they are some spot-on casting choices.

UPDATE: Apparently Fox has denied these casting rumors. Now that doesn't mean there's definitely no truth to 'em as studios shoot this kind of thing down all the time either way, but until more info comes our way we're going to have to assume it's been debunked.
