New X-Men film to start shooting next May

December 8th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Director Josh Boone has confirmed that the next X-Men movie will begin shooting in May 2017.

Production is set to start on what is the seventh film in the series but while we can only speculate on what the movie will be about, it is thought the New Mutants storyline will be front and centre.

Fox are favouring a mini-reboot of the main X-Men line of movies following the poor box office return of X-Men: Apocalypse.

The new film will film in Montreal, the same as Apocalypse and Days of Future Past.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
