Sci Fi Wire caught up with "X-Men" series producer Lauren Shuler Donner who gave an update on the status of the third installment.
She says that filming is targeted to begin in June, 2005 in Vancouver, BC, for a May, 2006 release date. "I just had a conversation with [director] Bryan [Singer] today," Shuler Donner said. "We just started to talk about what the possibilities are. We're pretty sure Wolverine's going to come back."
Shuler Donner added that she's going to push to add Gambit and Beast this time around. "I'm dying to put Beast in. I tried to get Beast in the first one and the second one, but it was always too expensive. So, yeah, I'm really dying to get Beast in, and I'd love to get Gambit in, because he's such a cool guy. And there's some really good casting ideas for Gambit."
