Latest X-Men 3 Updates

‘Chris’ tells Superhero Hype! that filming for X-Men 3 is taking place at the Sheraton Wall Centre today:

Saturday Oct. 1st here in Vancouver – I live at Burrard & Nelson Sts. right across from the Sheraton Wall Centre, one of the highest buildings in the city. They were setting up this afternoon for what looks like a HUGE shoot tomorrow – two massive cranes with a cablecam running in between. Tons of production trucks, the Plaza done up with new landscaping and a new sign reading “Worthington Labs” across the front. Looks like they’ll be doing passes over the street from WAY up.

You can check out pictures of the building and set here.

Australia’s Office of Film and Literature Classification has listed the X-Men 3 trailer as being 2 minutes long.

The Agassiz Observer reports that Sir Ian McKellen will shoot a Magneto action sequence on Lougheed Hwy. this month. (Spoiler ahead):

The film’s location manager, Ann Goobie, said filming will close the highway between Evergreen Dr. and the Agassiz Bypass between Oct. 11 and Oct. 15.

The 24-hour closures will allow crews to film a spectacular stunt sequence in which a semi and several smaller vehicles will be flipped over. Other driving stunts will also be performed.

Agassiz will stand in for an unspecified location on the east coast of the United States, she noted.

Also, the Vancouver Sun is reporting that Dania Ramirez (She Hate Me) is playing a “bad girl” in X-Men 3.
