Magneto and Prof X back in class

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are to re-team for sci-fi sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Director Bryan Singer confirmed the news...but wouldn't reveal how they would be used as the latest X-Men is a follow-up to X-Men: First Class...and it also stars Magneto and Professor X's younger incarnations as played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.

They'll be joined by Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult from the origins movie.

In the comic book, Days of Future Past is set in a dystopian future (2013 actually) where Sentinels roam the earth and mutant population is being hunted down to extinction.

Shooting begins next year.
