'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Cast: Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore Added To Roster

Good news for "X-Men" fans! Director Bryan Singer took to his Twitter account on Saturday to announce new cast members for the upcoming film.

Singer noted that Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, and Shawn Ashmore have been added to the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" cast. The director also thanked Brett Ratner, who directed "X-Men: The Last Stand," the third film in the franchise.

It was made public in November that both Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart will be returning to the film as well.

"What a gas! I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have been have just been playing 'Waiting for Godot' throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we've stayed in touch. We can't believe it [laughs]. I thought these were Fassbender and McAvoy's parts, but -- no, no -- we're back," McKellen told HuffPost in November. "We'll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven't read the script, so I don't know how much we've got to do. But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan to be doing it -- with all the success he's had in the meantime -- it's wonderful. Wonderful."

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is due out on July 18, 2014.
