Bryan Singer Returning To Montreal To Shoot Next ‘X-Men’ Film Early 2017?

Looks like we don’t have to wait too long to get some details about the future of the X-Men franchise as some possible details about the next installment have emerged. According to Journal De Montreal, the same outlet who previously broke the news about X-Men: Apocalypse returning to Montreal for re-shoots, it appears that Bryan Singer will indeed return for the next film in the X-Men franchise which will reportedly start shooting early 2017.  The seventh installment in the franchise will begin production in November of 2016 before returning to Mel’s Studios in Montreal to start principal photography in early 2017. Michel Trudel, of Mel’s Studios, told the website the following:

It’s always great news for our industry when we welcome this kind of production. We talk about films which have budgets of more than $ 200 million. A big production like X-Men generates direct and indirect economic benefits of hundreds of millions of dollars and makes work more than 2,000 Québec technicians.

It appears that Trudel had a meeting recently and inked the deal with Fox regarding the film returning to Montreal due to the studio liking “our facilities, our technicians and they appreciate the fact that our studios are located five minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from the airport. Bryan Singer (director of films) also like the city. It feels good to Montreal.” There are currently no details about the project known at the time but it is currently rumored that the new films will focus on the new cast with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender returning. There are no details about a release date but the report includes a rumored summer 2018 release date. Let us know your thoughts on this news in the comments below.
