‘Gustavo’ pointed us to BBC’s Five Live where you can now listen to the Patrick Stewart radio interview in which he mentions that 20th Century Fox is telling him they aim to start production on X-Men 3 in June or July of this year.
He added that “it will probably be a little bit later than that, but they are holding to their release date for the film, which will be summer of 2006. So, we gotta start shooting quite soon, because films like ‘X-Men’ are as complicated in their post-production as they are during production.”
He added that “a script is almost finished and I expect to have it in my hands any day now. I’ve been given an idea of the storyline”.
He couldn’t reveal the storyline at this time, however.
