X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Not Undergoing "Extensive" Reshoots; Only Scheduled For Around Two And A Half Weeks

It appears that this morning's shocking report about X-Men: Dark Phoenix reshoots lasting three months has been debunked. Plus, we have some interesting new details on what the additional scenes involve.

Earlier today, Montreal-based outlet LaPresse reported that the upcoming reshoots for 20th Century Fox's long-awaited X-Men: Dark Phoenix would last close to three months, which sent shockwaves across the interwebs, but it looks like there may have been something lost in translation as that report has now effectively been debunked.

Our friends over at Collider have learned from industry sources that the production team is indeed heading back to Montreal sometime in the next few weeks for additional photography, but that it will only last around two and a half weeks - not three months. 

The film's release date was originally delayed when it was determined that reshoots could not be completed before, at least, mid-fall due to the star cast's extremely busy schedules and instead of rushing out an unfinished product (see: Justice League), opted to push the film back a few months to February 2019, so that they could finish everything that needed to be done. This latest update from Collider also lines up with a THR report from March that revealed that reshoots would only cost around $10 million to complete. 

As for what new stuff they're expected to shoot, the report shares that the third act is being beefed up with more action beats. A few new dramatic scenes and some new shots for previously recorded scenes are also expected to be filmed, but none of what's being added is said to be major. 

Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.
