Talking with Anya Taylor-Joy, cast in New Mutants (which was supposed to be released this year and sent back for reshoots), the actress shares that the movie will be more of a horror movie, darker and given an R rating.

"It's crazy exciting! I love my character. I have such a connection to Illyana. And I don't find [the delay] frustrating because when the film comes out, we want it to be something that will make the fans truly happy. Taking the time to do it, whilst people might find it a little bit frustrating to wait for it, when we deliver it, it's going to be fantastic."

"I think we're making the movie that we set out to make, in the beginning. . It feels like the movie we all signed up to do, which is good."

Movieweb recently reported that Disney will release all films Fox has in production after the merger is done. New Mutants looks like it might be last in the X-men franchise to be released (if Marvel doesn't hard reboot the whole thing), following Dark Phoenix, which is slated to be released in 2019 also.
