The Next X-MEN Film Will Reportedly Start Filming In May 2017 - Is It NEW MUTANTS Or An APOCALYPSE Sequel?

A new report has surfaced with details on 20th Century Fox's next X-Men project, and it sounds like it may not be as far away from commencing production as we initially thought. Come check it out!

It seems as though the X-Men are returning to Montreal in the not so distant future.

Le Journal De Montréal has learned that 20th Century Fox has already opened up production offices in MELS Studios (located in Montreal) for their next X-Men movie and were also able to confirm that sets for the upcoming feature are expected to begin construction in January, which is just a few short weeks away. It will now become the third film in the series to shoot in the studio, following X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse.

MELS Studios president Michel Trudel corroborated the story: "They will start shooting in May and they will occupy Studios 2 and 3 of MELS for several months." He later went on to further explain the behind-the-scenes work it took to bring the production back to Montreal: "We had two and a half months of negotiations with the people at Fox. I went to Los Angeles last October to try to convince them. We are very pleased that they have agreed to return to Montreal. They enjoyed their two previous shooting experience with us and they were very satisfied with our facilities and talent of the Quebec film industry."

While a production has seemingly been confirmed, it's still up in the air as to which of Fox's many upcoming mutant-related projects it could be. The most likely bet is Josh Boone's New Mutants, which has been heavily rumored to begin filming in the spring, although the report does label the mystery project as "X-Men 7" and not as a spin-off film, so there is certainly a possibility (albeit a small one) that it is indeed a seventh installment in the main storyline.
