Fox has formalized plans for Dark Phoenix, the next installment of the X-Men franchise. This all just happened, but they’ve formalized Simon Kinberg as director, and the studio set a release date of Friday, November 2, 2018. Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee are all reprising when production begins in Montreal. At the same time, Jessica Chastain is in talk to join the cast in a new role.

Kinberg is producing with Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner. This is a huge moment for Kinberg, who has been the backbone of the X-Men films forever, and the spinoffs, and he is finally getting his turn behind the camera, making his directorial debut on such a big film with subject matter he knows like the back of his hand. Kinberg is also a producer on the currently shooting Deadpool 2, as well X-Men: The New Mutants,
