Sophie Turner will be back for the new X-Men movie and confirms it will film this year.

While speaking with HeyUGuys, Sophie Turner offers the following: 

“We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men, we’ve just finished shooting Season 7 of [Game of] Thrones, and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts. And then we go on to Season 8.”

The new X-Men movie looks to film in Montreal and is said to be titled "X-Men: Supernova."

According to rumors and plot descriptions, X-Men: Supernova will revisit the Phoenix storyline, which was touched upon in X-Men: Apocalypse and seen in X-Men: The Last Stand, though most likely it has nothing to do with the latter. 

A synopsis for X-Men: Supernova recently hit the net:

Gathered together by Professor Charles Xavier to protect a world that fears and hates them, the X-Men had fought many battles, been on adventures that spanned galaxies, grappled enemies of limitless might, but none of this could prepare them for the most shocking struggle they would ever face. One of their own members, Jean Grey, has gained power beyond all comprehension, and that power has corrupted her absolutely! Now they must decide if the life of the woman they cherish is worth the existence of the entire universe!
