Meanwhile, this weekend in Las Vegas, Patrick Stewart revealed that for the last week he has been filming X3 in Vancouver with Brett Ratner and that while things were a little chaotic due to Ratner's late arrival he sees it coming along as well as the last two films.
Interestingly enough according to one of the attendees, Stewart said most of the scenes he had worked on were not on any hard print whatsoever and were told to him directly from the writer. After "X3" he is rejoining the Royal Shakespearean Company for a year and a half and wouldn't be working on anything else film wise until 2007.
