Horror News Network has been providing a lot of coverage of 20th Century Fox’s New Mutants ever since the project was labeled as a “super hero horror film”.
This idea was further confirmed today by Fox’s CEO Stacey Snider in an exclusive interview with Variety. Snider touched on a number of topics, but she made sure to confirm that the New Mutants film would indeed be “…a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers.”
She would go to say that, “New Mutants is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club detention/Cuckoo’s Nest institutional setting. It protects the people on the outside, but it’s strange and combustible inside.”
