image-m-136_1443885114632 (174 x 430)Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is set to join the cast of new X-Men spinoff film New Mutants, reports BBC.
Writer and director Josh Boone set his sights on her last year but could only confirm the casting when the movie was green-lit this year.
New Mutants will focus on the “angst-driven” adventures of a group of teenage mutants.
Anya Taylor-Joy, whose credits include The Witch and Split, will also star in the film, which is due out next year.
Maisie will play a character called Wolfsbane, a Scottish girl who is struggling to mesh her religious beliefs with her ability to transform into a wolf.
