Directed by Josh Boone, who co-wrote the screenplay with, Knate Lee, the film will center on angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, Russian teen Magik, as well as an alien named Warlock.

The trailer has all the staples of a bonafide horror, with screams, sound effects and odd beings protruding from the walls – Very clever and rather apt that it’s been released on Friday the 13th.

Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga star in the film which will arrive in early 2018.

Producers are Simon Kinberg, Karen Rosenfelt, Lauren Shuler Donner.

We caught up with Anya Taylor-Joy at the recent LFF Premiere of Thoroughbreds in which she talked about the film and the M. Knight Shyamalan Unbreakable, Split sequel. Watch the interview below.
