X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be going for some major reshoots as the release of the mutant action film has been pushed back to 14 February, 2019.

Directed by Simon Kinberg, X-Men franchise writer-producer, the movie was scheduled to be released on 2 November this year.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter the change in release date is responsible for the reshoots. The movie was in the post-production stage and according to insiders it had come in slightly under-budget.

Some sources, however, said that the third act would need some rework, hence the reshoots.

Dark Phoenix is Kinberg's first directorial and rumour has it that he is yet to pen anything. But one insider expects the shoot to cost under $10 million.

The reshoots are believed to take place in late summer or early fall.
