The Official Title Of The NEW MUTANTS Movie And Its Production Start Date May Have Been Revealed

A new report seems to have confirmed the shoot date for 20th Century Fox's X-Men spin-off, as well as an official title. Plus, director Josh Boone reveals the inspiration for his script, and more...

Director Josh Boone seemed to confirm that he was set to begin shooting his New Mutants movie in Montreal around April, but a new report from Le Journal de Montreal (via Omega Underground) suggests that it'll commence production the slightly later in May, and also lists the film's title as "X-Men: The New Mutants."

It remains to be seen if this turns out to be official, but it wouldn't be too surprising if the studio wanted to make sure audiences knew the movie was a part of the X-franchise. It could also mean that this will actually be more of a direct continuation than a spin-off, opening up the possibility of some characters from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse returning. That's just speculation for now of course.

In a separate interview with Creative Screenwriting, Boone discusses which New Mutants comics were the inspiration for the script he and co-writer/childhood friend Knate Gwaltney turned in, and reveals that they originally pitched a trilogy to Simon Kinberg.


"We had loved Bill Sienkiewicz’s run with Chris Claremont that had Demon Bear. It was really dark, interesting, and different from the typical X-Men stories that we had read. After I made The Fault in Our Stars, we made Fox a comic book. It walked them through a trilogy of New Mutant films that would build on each other. We used this program called Comic Life, and took all the images we had loved from the series and strung them together to show them the movie we wanted to do. We brought it to Simon and he really liked it.

We’ve been going for the past year and a half to get it ready, and I’m about to go location scout and we have a release date now."

The New Mutants movie is currently set for release in 2018.
