Director Josh Boone confirms that production is underway on X-Men: New Mutants…

After many years of rumours, development and work, 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: New Mutants film has finally started shooting. The movie is filming in Canada, and it’s the first of next year’s trio of X-Men movies to hit cinemas. It’s due in April, followed by Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix later in the year (the Deadpool sequel starting filming first, though).

Josh Boone is directing this one, with his work on The Fault In Our Stars likely to have been a factor. And he’s taken to his Instagram account to salute the start of filming on the new film…
