We know that Fox’s ‘New Mutants’ has gone through multiple delays though it has never been clear as to why. Rumors have run the gambit on these delays from reshoots to rewrites to poor test audience responses to even shoehorning the movie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Alice Braga has stated none of these are the case at all.
The actress shared that the film really did not need reshoots or rewrites. The reason?
“Josh prepared so much, him and Knate [Lee], beforehand, you know, about the script and all that, so there’s not much rewrites happening. Like, there’s more creating the environment on set and the energy on set. The location is so amazing, they shot Shutter Island here, the Scorcese film, and you can feel it….”
