Prepare yourself for an alien invasion.
Pre-production has begun in Boston on “X-Men: The New Mutants,” a spinoff of the wildly successful “X-Men” film franchise. Not much is known about the movie, except that director Josh Boone, whose credits include “The Fault in Our Stars,” will be behind the camera, and Scottish actor James McAvoy might be in front of it. We say might because the cast hasn’t been confirmed, but McAvoy, who played Professor Xavier in the “X-Men” movies, is rumored to be reprising the role in “The New Mutants.” It’s not clear where Boone will be filming — we’re told scouts have looked at Medfield State Hospital, where director Martin Scorsese filmed scenes for “Shutter Island” — but we at least know work has begun because Boone posted a picture on Instagram announcing that the long-gestating movie is finally off the ground.https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/names/2017/04/11/men-the-new-mutants-set-begin-filming-boston/xXAJT1EodlVmHP8nXp4KTP/story.html

Omega Underground recently spotted director Josh Boone revealing that X-Men: The New Mutants would shoot some scenes in Boston, which was confirmed by The Boston Globe.
Nothing had stated that production would be centralized in the Boston area as they’ll be seemingly only using Medfield State Hospital as seen in Shutter Island.
A new production listing we’ve spotted is having us questioning if New Mutants might actually be shooting primarily in Montreal as we previously had reported.
We’ve been assuming for months that Teen Spirit is the on-set production title for X-Men 7
formerly known as X-Men: Supernova. However, this production start date
seems to lineup with the Montreal start date for Teen Spirit which Omega Underground previously uncovered as shooting from June-October.
It’s possible that Teen Spirit and New Mutants are the same films as the two projects begin shooting on June 4th. We don’t often see two studio films begin filming on the same date that’s unless the two are connected in some way.
If New Mutants and Teen Spirit are one and the same, this could mean that James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, along with the likes of Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams (Boone confirmed?) might be all set to star this summer. Turner and McAvoy have seemingly confirmed they’ll be shooting an untitled X-Men film this summer.
Despite rumors, we don’t have a director set for X-Men 7. It’s
looking like New Mutants might just be X-Men 7 after all. This could
also reveal that the film might be aiming for a 1991 setting,
as Teen Spirit might be referring to the 1991 single Smells Like Teen
Spirit from Nirvana. In the same year, Marvel relaunched the X-Men.

And immediately after that, he’s Canada-bound, for a fourth X-Men movie, reprising the role of Hank McCoy/The Beast.Meanwhile, there’s the small business of a fourth big-budget X-Men spectacular to film. He recently met with co-star and fellow north London-based motorbike enthusiast James McAvoy to talk about the production, which will begin in Montreal later this year

The New Mutants film is looking to open April 13th 2018 and that will be directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars). James McAvoy will apparently show up in New Mutants as Charles Xavier (not confirmed yet). The project aims to be a more young-adult style movie, which makes sense since it will follow a generation of teenage mutants. Rumored to star in New Mutants are Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy as Wolfsbane and Magik.
Lastly Dark Phoenix, or X-Men: Dark Phoenix, is a direct sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse that will end the saga that started with X-Men: First Class in 2011. This one is coming November 2nd 2018 and as you can tell from the title it will once again try to tell the Dark Phoenix story (something X-Men: The Last Stand failed to do). Previously known as X-Men: Supernova, the new film will be written and directed by Simon Kinberg and of course star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey. Also it will take place in the 90’s, skipping another decade.

Area film fanatics and Marvel Comics devotees are rejoicing after
news spread that a spinoff in the X-Men franchise, “X-Men: New Mutants”
will be filming this summer at Medfield State Hospital. The plot is set
to revolve around the New Mutants, a new batch of heroes trained at
Professor Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
“The Town of Medfield signed a contract this week with 20th Century
Fox to rent the former Medfield State Hospital site for thirty weeks for
the filming of a new ‘X-Men’ movie this year,” Selectman Osler “Pete”
Peterson revealed on his blog.
While details on the film are few at the moment and generally
confined to the realm of rumor, one name that has been definitively
linked to the nascent production is that of director Josh Boone. Boone’s
last film, “The Fault in Our Stars,” won 2015’s MTV Movie Award for
Movie of the Year.
James McAvoy is rumored to be reprising his role as Professor X, though his role in the production has yet to be confirmed.
The “X-Men” production will mark the second time in the last decade
that the scenic State Hospital grounds have played host to a motion
picture crew; “Shutter Island,” Martin Scorsese’s 2010 thriller, also
shot on location in Medfield.

That release date plan means that all three X-Men movies
will be in production at the same time - which has led to a lot of
speculation that Fox could include some big crossover connections in
each film, to help tie its growing X-Men cinematic Universe closer
together. There's particular fixation on New Mutants and Dark Phoenix,
since both films may contain some core X-Men - characters that could
easily crossover between both films. That leaves us with the question:
How Will X-Men: Dark Phoenix Connect to New Mutants?
Josh Brolin's Cable is an obvious candidate to use as a link. Based
on Marvel Comics history, Cable has been a major player in all of the
X-Men films coming out in 2018:

Omega Underground has been keeping close tabs on upcoming X-Men productions and the one we’ve been most interested in has been X-Men: Dark Phoenix since the studio hasn’t revealed a director or returning cast members.
Even though, we’ve been able to confirm production begins this June 4th in Montreal until sometime in October under the confirmed working title Teen Spirit.
Well, Omega Underground has been able to confirm another aspect of the film, as casting is underway. We’ve uncovered a couple audition tapes for three actors vying for new roles in the film.
They include Australian actor Rarmian Newtown (The Family, Dance Academy) for Shane, young Canadian-American actress Alexa Swinton (Billions) for Marie, and Irish newcomer Paul Mescal for Sam. These might be placeholder character names for the audition process and we’ve seen a similar process in television casting as well.
However, it’s hard to ignore that X-Men member Rogue‘s real name is Marie D’Ancanto and the character Swinton is auditioning for is named Marie. We’ve been championing a reboot of the character and introducing her in Dark Phoenix could help establish an older version in future films. It wouldn’t terribly shocking to see another version of Rogue since Fox recently rebooted mutants such as Jubliee, Angel, Colossus, and Psylocke.

Fox’s long-awaited X-Men spinoff New Mutants is finally casting up.
Anya Taylor-Joy, the star of The Witch and Split, and Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams have signed on to star in the ensemble young adult superhero movie being directed by Josh Boone.
The movie is headed towards an early July start with a script by
Boone and his writing partner, Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg and Karen
Rosenfelt are producing.
New Mutants, created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, was the first X-Men comic spinoff, launched in the early 1980s as the franchise began two decades of dominating the comic book industry.
The pic will focus on the angst-driven adventures of a diverse group
of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl
Wolfsbane, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named
Cannonball and Russian teen Magik. Also in the mix will be an alien
Taylor-Joy will play Magik, a girl who has learned sorcery and uses
teleportation discs to travel. She is also the sister of Colossus, an
X-Man who appeared in Deadpool.
Williams will play Wolfsbane, a girl struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her power to turn into a wolf.
Boone has been eyeing the actresses since last year but was only able
pull the trigger on them once the movie was greenlighted earlier this
year. New Mutants has a release date of April 13, 2018.
Fox is making serious efforts to find ethnically appropriate actors,
conducting wide searches for a Native American to play Moonstar and a
South American for Sunspot.
Taylor-Joy broke out with the 2015 award-winning period horror movie The Witch and starred with James McAvoy in M. Night Shyamalan’s surprise hit Split. She is repped by CAA, Felker Toczek and Troika in the U.K.
Williams plays Arya Stark on HBO's Game of Thrones, which launches its seventh season in July. She is repped by WME, Jackoway Tyerman and the U.K.'s Louise Johnston Management.
