20th Century Fox’s New Mutants will hit theaters next year and now Omega Underground confirms that the film will begin production in July, with Boston and Montreal serving as shooting locations.
Scheduled to beginning production on July 10th and wrap on September 15th, Omega Underground reports that the film will spend an unknown amount of time shooting in Montreal, though casting calls suggest that production will wrap in Boston in mid-August.
With Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix scheduled to shoot in Montreal from June to October, fans have been wondering if the two films might be connected, though rumors of James McAvoy appearing in New Mutants as Charles Xavier are reportedly untrue.
Details on the plot for New Mutants are currently under wraps, but the film will reportedly feature more horror elements and focus on the personal conflicts of the main characters.
