“Mutants” Title, Next “Jurassic” Score Updates

Following on from comments by director Josh Boone over the weekend about storylines that inspired it, it seems 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off previously dubbed “New Mutants” is slightly changing up its title.

Le Journal de Montreal (via Omega Underground) reports that the film will go by the official title of “X-Men: The New Mutants” and will begin production in May in Montreal, not April as Boone had suggested earlier. “X-Men: The New Mutants” is said to be targeting a Spring 2018 release.

In other sequel news, THR reports that the upcoming “Jurassic World 2” won’t be making a change to the way it sounds with Michael Giacchino confirming he’s returning to score the film which is said to be considerably darker than the first.
