The X-Men: First Class follow-up is now set to sign up Hugh Jackman, to join Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen...

Yesterday, X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer Tweeted the news that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were set to rejoin the X-Men franchise in the roles of Professor X and Magneto. The new film, the follow-up to X-Men: First Class, sees old and new versions of the characters from the original X-Men movie trilogy. And it seems that now includes Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman finally finished shooting on next summer's The Wolverine just last week, but he's now apparently in talks to reprise the role once more for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. We'd expect this news to be confirmed shortly.

Shooting is set to start on the new film next spring, ahead of its release in the summer of 2014.
