Alice Braga (“Predators,” “Elysium,” “Queen of the South”) has joined the cast of Josh Boone’s “X-Men” horror-thriller spinoff “New Mutants”.
The story follows five diverse teens (Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga and Blu Hunt) learning to cope with their superpowers who must escape a secret facility where they are being held against their will.
Braga will play Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on.
Braga will take over the role initially inhabited by Rosario Dawson who has exited the project, the reason for her departure is unclear. Filming begins next month in Boston ahead of an April 13th 2018 release.
