X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Will Start Shooting in Montreal Next Year
After seeing what Bryan Singer did with X-Men: Days of Future Past, I can't wait to see what he has in store for X-Men: Apocalypse. The script for the sequel was being worked on over the summer, and the film is currently set to be released on May 27th, 2016.
A new report has surfaced from Canadian newspaper Journal De Montreal, who confirms that the movie will start filming in April of 2015 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Construction on the set for the film will begin at the end of this year at Mel’s Studio, which is where Days of Future Past was shot.
As of right now, no one has officially signed on to star in the film, but you can bet that we'll be seeing a lot of familiar faces such as Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult. Producer/co-writer Simon Kinberg previously said that the sequel will take place in the 1980s and also may feature some of the original cast such as Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, etc. Who knows how big of a role they will play in the film this time around though.
The story for the film will center around the mutant villain Apocalypse, who we all saw in the post-credits scene of Days of Future Past. It was also said that the story will involve Ancient Mutants. It's going to be cool to see what kind of story they have developed from these elements.
