Production On Next X-Men Movie To Kick Off In May 2017

20th Century Fox’s grand X-Men franchise appears to be in a state of flux following the launch of Apocalypse earlier in the year. Barring the runaway success of Deadpool, production on the Channing Tatum-fronted Gambit solo movie has effectively ground to a halt, and unless the studio irons out contract extensions with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, the uncertainty swirling around the core X-Men timeline may prompt Fox to reboot the series as we know it.

Speaking of which, Le Journal De MontrĂ©al has unearthed a report that suggests 20th Century Fox will be bringing together the X-Men as early as next year May 2017, to be specific. The outlet claims Fox will circle back to MELS Studios for the next film, extending its streak there to three features after Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse.

MELS Studios president Michel Trudel relayed a statement on the matter, noting that Fox “will start shooting in May and they will occupy Studios 2 and 3 of MELS for several months. We had two and a half months of negotiations with the people at Fox. I went to Los Angeles last October to try to convince them. We are very pleased that they have agreed to return to Montreal. They enjoyed their two previous shooting experience with us and they were very satisfied with our facilities and talent of the Quebec film industry.”
