X-MEN MOVIE UPDATE
Producer Ralph Winter told The Continuum he will be returning to work on the third X-Men movie.
"Yes, I will be producing along with Lauren," Winter said, referring to Lauren Shuler Donner.
Both producers worked on both of the previous X-Men movies. It was announced recently that Simon Kinberg is working on a script for X3, and a director should be announced fairly soon.
Bryan Singer, who directed the first two X-Men movies, is currently working on a Superman film for Warner Bros.
Winter, whose credits also include several Star Trek movies and Planet of the Apes, is currently producing Fantastic Four in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Look for more from Winter during The Continuum's visit to the FF set early next week.
