Update: X-Men: Dark Pheonix will reportedly not take three months to shoot. Collider reports that sources close to the production of Dark Phoenix say that this report is “erroneous.” The film is going back for additional shooting, but it’s only scheduled to last two and a half weeks, which is normal.
Reshoots for big-budget tentpole films in Hollywood is normal. What isn’t normal is when those reshoots will last three months! According to a recent report, director Simon Kinberg‘s X-Men: Dark Phoenix is rumored to undergo three months of reshoots, which means Fox hates the current cut of the film that was turned in.
If that’s true, the movie must be a huge mess! The initial principal photography of the film last year lasted three and a half months, so with three months of reshoots being planned… are they looking to reshoot the whole movie!? That’s just crazy.
