X-Men 3 Expected to Stay in B.C.

The Vancouver Sun reports that X-Men 3 will likely shoot in British Columbia again:

British Columbia is front-runner once again to land the big-budget feature X-Men 3, thanks largely to increased tax incentives announced by the provincial government last month.

“B.C. has always been a great place to make movies and the increased tax incentive program has moved British Columbia to the top of my list as a destination of choice for X-Men 3,” said producer Ross Fanger in a statement released Friday afternoon.

X2: X-Men United, second in the X-Men film franchise, was shot in B.C. with Fanger as unit production manager. Fanger also co-produced Fantastic Four, the biggest production to come to the province in 2004, an off-year for the industry.
