It looks like all systems are a go for the new movie “Dark Phoenix” from the “X-Men” franchise, with director Simon Kinberg once again at the helm.

According to Collider, Sophie Turner will be reprising her role as Jean Grey. Several main players from “X-Men: Apocalypse” will also be back, such as Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler).

Unfortunately, there is no word yet as to the return of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver. Filming will take place in Montreal.

An exciting addition to the movie franchise will be Jessica Chastain. The Hollywood Reporter said that she is in talks to play the villain named “Lilandra, the empress of an alien empire called the Shi’ar, who leads the quest to imprison and execute Dark Phoenix, leading her into conflict with the X-Men.”

Lilandra also commands an impressive alien super-team named the Imperial Guard, but it is still unclear if the group will be featured in the movie.

Fortunately, Fox managed to round up majority of the original cast, since Lawrence and the other actors earlier said that “Apocalypse” might be their last mutant movie. Back in July 2015, Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly that she’s done with putting on blue paint just to get in character for the role of Mystique. “Now I’m almost 25 and I’m like, ‘I can’t even pronounce this and that’s going in my nose? I’m breathing that?’” Lawrence said.

However, she changed her tune later during an interview with Empire. Lawrence said she’s “dying” to come back and do another “X-Men” film, especially since she loves the cast. She said that her only condition to return was if the studio managed to get the other cast members to do another film as well. “I love these movies, I love being in them. I love ensemble movies because it’s not on anyone’s shoulders,” Lawrence said.

“Dark Phoenix” will make its way to cinemas on Nov. 2, 2018.
