Horror X-Men movie project delayed again
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The New Mutants has not been re-filmed yet. This is a project to continue the X-Men franchise. The New Mutants is aimed to be a horror movie which had first been planned to hit theaters in 2018.
After the movie had been delayed for the first time, Fox asked director Josh Boone to re-film some scenes. The process is expected to take place in September 2018 so that the movie can be released in August 2, 2019. However, it seems like they’re gonna miss the day.
The fact that Josh Boone has not returned to work makes it impossible for The New Mutants to hit theaters in early August. In fact, the question here is whether the film will be released outside the cinemas.

Recently, some sources believe that The New Mutants project will be completed once Disney has incorporated Fox, and the House of Mouse will release the movie on Disney + or Hulu.
If Hulu is really willing to carry The New Mutants, it will be a big step forward in their relationship with Marvel because they are preparing to feature four new animated series produced by the superhero studio and negotiating to revive the Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and The Punisher.
Previously, there was an optimistic rumor that The New Mutants was delayed again and again because the production team wanted to make movie a foundation for X-Men to become a part of Marvel Cinema Universe later.
However, producer Kevin Feige has indirectly denied that when he said making X-Men appear in MCU cannot be executed in one day or two, but it would take many years for research and development.
The New Mutants is expected to introduce a completely new generation of X-Men to the audience, including Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy), Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams), Sunspot (Henry Zaga). The original comic version of the movie was published in 1982, telling the story about a group of teenage mutants.

Josh Boone plans to make The New Mutants a horror movie while exploring the teen psychology of the main characters. He once described his film as the meeting between Stephen King and John Hughes. However, the outcome for The New Mutants is still an unanswered question.
