New X-Men 3 Casting and Updates

CamFans.org reports that Cameron Bright (“Godsend,” “Birth”) will star as Leech in X-Men 3:

Just to let you know that it is official as of today…..Cam booked the role of Leech in the next X-men movie. The script is hush hush so I cant say much more as that is all I know. He will be shaved bald though and he is looking forward to that.

Sources tell XMF that X-Men 3 might be lense in Washington, DC possibly near a major monument! We have no information on what type of shoot this may be, first or second unit, but we do know that producers have already been in touch with the District of Columbia Film Office.
