Jones in Talks for X-Men 3 Villain?

Ain’t-It-Cool-News received an interesting scoop this morning:

Hey Harry, long time no speak. Anyway, I don’t know what this means, or if it means anything at all, but Vinnie Jones is now up in the X-Men 3 production office.

While it sounded like just another rumor, IGN Filmforce reports that it’s indeed true:

IGN FilmForce’s trusty X3 source informed us that the Jones rumor is true and that the filmmakers are “definitely” talking to him about an unspecified villain role.

X-Men 3 director Matthew Vaughn previously produced Vinnie Jones films “Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”. Jones has also starred in “Gone in Sixty Seconds” and “Eurotrip”.
