More names from the original X-Men movie trilogy join Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past...

Bryan Singer is getting closer and closer to shooting the follow-up to X-Men: First Class, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past heading into production soon.

As well as the bulk of the First Class cast appearing, the plot this time - which involves time travel elements - will bring in faces from the original X-Men trilogy (of which Singer directed the first two outings). As such, we've already heard that Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are involved. But Singer has now announced on his Twitter feed that Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Rashmore are returning too.

Paquin will be playing Rogue again, Page is back as Shadowcat, while Ashmore will be reprising the role of Iceman. In his Tweet, Singer thanks Brett Ratner for letting them live in X-Men: The Last Stand, which suggests that the characters he did bump off are going to stay dead (in spite of the time travel mechanic).

More news on X-Men: Days Of Future Past as we get it. The film is set for release on July 18th 2014.
