XMenFilms.net sent us the following news on the new production designer for X-Men 3:
20th Century Fox’s X-MEN 3 continues to move forward! We have learned (and we can exclusively confirm) that the ink has just barely dried on a contract, for ED VERREAUX to be the new production designer on the film! Unfortunately, this of course means that X2′s production designer, Guy Dyas will not be returning. He’s currently working on Bryan Singer’s SUPERMAN RETURNS, and will then move on to working on Singer’s other film, LOGAN’S RUN.
Verreaux will start production design for X3 this very week! This means that concept art, storyboards, and construction of the sets will begin in the near future! He will be using the current Simon Kinberg/Zak Penn script for the blueprints of what is needed.
Verreaux’s production designer credits include “The Scorpion King,” “Jurassic Park III” and “Contact”. You can view his full filmography here.
