X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Reshoots Scheduled
Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past will return to Montreal for reshoots. Before anyone claims this is a sign of trouble, remember that a lot of recently successful blockbusters underwent reshoots as well.
Fox's seventh film in their X-Men franchise will shortly begin reshoots in Montreal. Quebec film commissioner Hans Fraikin confirmed the news that Singer and co. will be back for more filming. "A couple of weeks is a big reshoot," said Fraikin. But if you've been with us here at CBM for a while, you should know that reshoots are fairly common on big, blockbuster comic book movies such as this. Pretty much all the Marvel Studios films have reshoots, World War Z underwent reshoots and Mad Max: Fury Roads is currently undergoing reshoots. Fury Roads, could be a more pertinent example as the film reportedly looks great and the production was given more money from the studio to make an action scene bigger and more explosive. The same thing could very well be occurring with Days of Future Past.
Based on the tweet below, it appears that Daniel Cudmore aka Colossus is involved in the reshoots and unless the timeline is completely screwed up, it looks as if the reshoots will be for the apocalyptic future setting glimpsed in the debut trailer. Previously, it was said that 1/3 of the movie takes place in that far-flung future but I know many comic book fans are hoping to spend much more time there and with the giant sentinels. There's also the possibility that more scenes for Storm (Halle Berry) are being filmed as the Academy Award winning actress' pregnancy limited her ability to film action scenes during initial filming.
