Singer/actor Rain has dropped out of an unspecified role in 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Dark Phoenix due to scheduling conflicts, according to South Korean newspaper  JoongAng Ilbo (via SBS).

The news came from fellow actor Lee Beom Soo, who is currently filming a movie with Rain titled Uhm Bok-dong. Rain reportedly told the actor that he had to resign from the X-Men: Dark Phoenix role because Uhm Bok-dong, which Rain plays the titular lead character, is scheduled to film into August and the Fox X-Men film begins shooting in July.

Rain made his North American cinematic debut with a role in 2008's Speed Racer, and has since appeared in Ninja Assassin and The Prince.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is scheduled to be released November 2, 2018.
