Collider’s source has it that over half of The New Mutants could up end up being reshot, which is set to star Game Of Thrones alum Maisie Williams and Split breakout star Anya Taylor-Joy.
Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “the movie was in post-production and insiders say it had come in slightly under-budget”.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix based on the classic X-Men comic series The Dark Phoenix Saga, will feature the story of the Phoenix Force inheriting Jen Grey’s (Sophie Turner) body, unlocking her true power and turning her into a unsafe force.
I actually thought they were adding in Warlock to lighten the tone and make it more in line with a Marvel Studios movie; however, that apparently isn’t the case or at least isn’t any more. They also point out that they are not necessarily a bad thing-true enough, but we also know of fewer instances where it is a good thing.
Deadpool 2 is right around the corner, but it’ll be the last X-Men-related movie for a while as both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants have now been pushed back to 2019.
According to Collider, Boone delivered a new cut of the film, but Fox executives have pushed for more additional photography, to ensure the horror-inspired New Mutants is tonally distinctive, much in the same way Deadpool and Logan are.
For its part, Dark Phoenix was on track for a November 2018 release until Fox green-lit a reworking of the film’s final third. The film written and directed by Simon Kinberg, will feature the returns of Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler).
We’re beyond ready for Kinberg’s directorial take on the X-Men, so we’re seriously hoping Fox is able to stick by its new release date.
