X-Men 3

Hi all,
Just thought I'd post a bit more on the latest (and more than likely last) instalment of the X-Men franchise.

Filming is due to start in August of this year, aiming for a July 2006 release.

Hugh Jackman has already confirmed he will reprise his role as Wolverine and indeed has confirmed this week that he will be filiming "Wolverine" a spin-off movie, not long after wrapping up X3.
Scott Marsden, Patrick Stewart & Famke Janssen are all likely to return.
Kitty Pryde is also to be given a bigger role in this movie.

It's probably fairly safe to say that this has been a 'troubled' production with numerous directors & writers involved at one point or another.
Brett Ratner (director of Rush Hour) is the latest to be offered the poisoned chalice.
It is already confirmed that Kelsey Grammer will be playing Beast along with Gambit (possibly an actor called Scott Madej) and (the yet uncast) Angel.

There's still rumours about the Juggernaut (hopefully not Vinnie Jones as earlier rumoured!) being involved, along with the Dark Phoenix storyline (although this is not to be the main storyline).

Rumours persist that the main story will revolve around the Sentinels and it's also hinted that several "main" X-Men will be killed off during the movie (probably not Wolverine due to the planned spin-off movie)

Let's see how the last of the trilogy pans out....

I hope so, but with all these new characters I don't know how much screen time he'll get!

Re: X-Men 3

thats always been the problem with such an ensamble book. knowing which characters to devote screen time to. I know they had planned to feature jubilee for more than just her brief appearance in x2, but simply didn't have the time for it.

Re: X-Men 3

No Gambit??? No Longshot??? No Captain Britain???

Figured that Phoenix might make a starring role - and maybe Juggernaut!!! But unless they intend to make him look like Hulk, it might not work!!!

Yea I'm definitely hoping for Gambit .... but having an August film start and a July release sounds pretty ambitious to me.

Re: X-Men 3

For some peculiar reason I've always thought of Harry Connick Jr in the role. Sans singing, of course.

Re: X-Men 3

Never heard of him. And neither has IMDb. So I'm assuming his part ain't gonna be huge...

Re: X-Men 3

Gambit and Rogue in the same script ? It's official : X-men movies have jumped the shark.

Found this site for Scott Madej. Don't know much about him or if he will be a good Gambit. At least there is a picture of him.

Re: X-Men 3
