There had been some confusion on our part where Josh Boone’s New Mutants and Dark Phoenix would be filming, and we now have confirmation that it’s unlikely that New Mutants will be shooting in Montreal. We had reported that Boone was teasing a shoot in Boston and the surrounding area, confirmed by The Boston Globe.
Back in December, we first caught word of the seventh untitled X-Men film’s production returning to Montreal’s studio facility MELS Studios as reported by Le Journal de Montreal.
However, it was only until recently 20th Century Fox confirmed that X-Men: Dark Phoenix was even happening revealing it’s release date for November 2nd, 2018.
Production Weekly is now listing the New Mutants working title as Growing Pains further confirming that Dark Phoenix is indeed using the production title Teen Spirit (a reference to the film’s setting of 1991) and will shoot in Montreal, Quebec.
Omega Underground previously confirmed that Dark Phoenix begins filming on June 4th in Montreal and wraps sometime in October.
