Stars reveal Dark Phoenix was being constantly rewritten on set
We are just hours away from the official release of the last installment in the Fox’s X-Men franchise. As soon as Dark Phoenix hits the theaters, the mutants lead by Professor Xavier will come back to Marvel Studios. Speaking with Screen Rant, Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner has revealed that director and writer Simon Kinberg was constantly rewriting the movie’s screenplay on the set.
“Simon and I would sit down for two hours every day and just comb through each page of the script,” Turner said. “There was rewriting being done all the time.”
In the same interview, fellow Dark Phoenix star Jessica Chastain said that Kinberg used to decide the movie’s direction overnight.
“You could have a conversation and something comes from that and then the next morning, Simon would show up to work and say, ‘hey, I wrote some pages that I think could be interesting for this direction we’re going,'” Chastain stated.
Now all that rests to see is how Simon Kinberg’s movie will perform at the box office. The early reviews, though, have been mainly bad.
The last installment to Fox’s X-Men film franchise opens in theaters June 7. What do you think about Turner’s and Chastain’s revelations? Let us know in the comments section below.
