[UPDATED] X-Men: Dark Phoenix Will NOT Have Three Months Of Reshoots

UPDATE: According to Collider‘s various sources, reshoots will only be around two weeks, and it will mostly focus on the third act. So no, this will not be a complete overhaul as previously reported. This also falls in line with what I’ve heard from a couple different sources close to the production as well. So, yeah, it doesn’t sound like this is happening.


Earlier this year, X-Men: Dark Phoenix was pushed back from November of 2018 to February 2019. Not long after, it was reported that the film would be undergoing reshoots, which seemed like a no-brainer, given the delay. The studio even went on to say that they’d be reshooting the third act of the film, but in a new report from LaPresse, it’s stated that the upcoming reshoots will take three months instead of the two weeks, as initially thought.

This isn’t a great number, if true, as the film originally took just shy of four months to shoot, meaning that they should be reshooting almost the entire movie — maybe even the entire thing, if they get really ambitious with it.

This would be very unfortunate, if true, as it could lead to an inflated budget and, perhaps most importantly, a bit of a rocky start for first-time director Simon Kinberg, who is helming the project.

The GWW has heard from those who had supposedly seen the film in test screenings that it’s “a complete mess,” and that Kinberg was “over his head with the action sequences.” This doesn’t sound very promising, but this report isn’t confirmed just yet.
