The New Mutants Re-Shoots Will Finally Take Place This Year

The New Mutants re-shoots will finally take place this year

In one of the more bizarre ongoing stories in Hollywood, Josh Boone’s long delayed X-Men spinoff The New Mutants will finally undergo reshoots this year. The news comes directly from producer Simon Kinberg during an interview with DigitalSpy, though no specific date was given for when the reshoots would take place.

“What’s happening is we’re gonna do reshoots this year on that film and it has a new release date from Disney. That’s really it. Part of it was figuring out what the re-shoots were gonna be, the pick-ups, and the other part of it was getting that cast back together.”

Kinberg also stated that the difficulty of getting everyone back together had to do with scheduling conflicts with other projects, though one would have expected the producers to have planned for such a necessity. At the very least it sounds like The New Mutants might actually make its newly slotted April 3, 2020 release date.

Reshoots were originally ordered by Fox to try and expand on the positive feedback to the horror elements in the first trailer. They were slated to film again in September 2018 for an August 2, 2019 release date, but without the additional production scheduled the film’s release date has been left in limbo. Sources say that the decision to move forward with the reshoots lay in writer/director Josh Boone’s hands.

Some have been questioning whether the film will even receive a theatrical release. Given Disney’s acquisition of Fox, rumors are circulating that the film may hold its premiere on Disney+ or Hulu rather than a traditional theatrical release. This would align with Marvel’s growing relationship with Hulu after the streaming service ordered four original animated series from the company, as well as talks of them reviving all of the Marvel series Netflix has cancelled.

The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy (SplitThe Witch) as Magik and Maisie Williams (Game of Thronesgen:LOCK) as Wolfsbane, with Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Dani Moonstar, and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton as Cannonball.

The New Mutants adapts the monthly comic book series of the same name that launched in 1982. Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, The New Mutants follows on a group of teenage mutants as heroes in training in the Marvel Universe. The feature is expected to be a departure from the sci-fi-action spectacle of other X-Men films and is instead being described as a “Stephen King meets John Hughes”-style horror movie.

In November 2017, ComingSoon.net exclusively revealed a leaked concept animatic from the film, which features Wolfsbane, Magic and Cannonball facing the Demon Bear.
