No, The New Mutants didn’t have to go through a reshoot session! This is what the director of the film wanted to assert, whose final release is scheduled for April 1, 2020. Indeed, the rumor that The New Mutants, whose link with X-Men was confirmed by Josh Boone, should have returned some scenes had been running for a while already. And for good reason, the opus experienced many delays in its production, which caused a lot of mess at the level of its release date in dark rooms. The latter has indeed been rejected more than three times. Going from February 2019 to August 2019 before finally deciding on the date we know today.
Indeed, at the time it was whispered that after the merger between Disney and Fox, the film crew The New Mutants had to reshoot more than half of the scenes shot. A theory that justified production delays at the time. However, Josh Boone would like to deny this false statement once and for all by declaring to the site EW : “Everyone says we did reshoots! When we never did“. Before adding”And I’ll tell you: If there hadn’t been a merger between Fox and Disney, I’m sure we would have flipped certain scenes, like all the other films do. But we couldn’t even do it because by the time the merger ended, the cast had already aged too much.“A valid argument when we know the average age of the cast! Indeed, during the takeover, the two firms took more than a year to agree on the future of the project, leaving the team of film on the sidelines when it had already been shot at 75%, so it would seem that The New Mutants, which looks like a very dark horror film, will not ultimately suffer the same fate as Suicide Squad. The latter, considered as a fiasco, had indeed been heavily reworked during an additional shoot. Phew!
