NEW MUTANTS Still In Josh Boone's Hands, But Might Be More Likely For Disney+ Release Over Theatrical

A new report has shared a few interesting details about the status of New Mutants, and it's looking more and more likely that the film could be released on Disney+ over a traditional theatrical launch.

As part of their informative weekly Heat Vision newsletter, The Hollywood Reporter aces Aaron Couch, Borys Kit, and Graeme McMillan have shared a small, but interesting, update regarding the other big X-Men movie currently on 20th Century Fox's slate: The New Mutants.

While the film is currently slated to open this August, it's not expected to be ready for release as it still has a number of reshoots to complete. These reshoots, which we've heard plenty about, were initially expected to happen sometime last summer in order to add more horror elements to the film, but according to THR's sources, the additional photography has yet-to-be scheduled. However, they do note that the film is still firmly in the hands of director Josh Boone. 

Now, as for whether the X-Men spinoff will actually see the light of day, THR believes it will, but it's now looking increasingly likely that The New Mutants may not receive a traditional theatrical release and could actually be one of the first movie titles to debut on the Disney+ streaming service once the House of Mouse completes its acquisition of 20th Century Fox, which is widely expected to happen within the next two weeks.


WHAT HAPPENING WITH NEW MUTANTS? It's easy to forget, but, Dark Phoenix is not technically Fox's last X-Men movie. The studio has director Josh Boone's New Mutants dated for Aug. 2. The film was supposed to open in April 2018 ... and then it was pushed to February 2019, only to be pushed back again to August. Will it ever see the light of day under the Disney regime? (Likely yes.) Will it make it to theatres? (Umm...) Well, will it at least make it to Disney+ (Sounds like a safe bet.) But it still has reshoots to do, right? (None planned so far but things seem to be in the hands of Boone, say sources.)


Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
