Sheldon Turner, the writer behind "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning," will tackle the Magneto script that will focus on the beginnings of not only the magnetic baddie, but also when he first met Professor Xavier.
Variety reports that the film will show how the two became friends while Xavier, a soldier during World War II, saves him from a German concentration camp. Fans of the X-Men movies will likely remember the scene in the beginning of the first film that featured Magneto as a young boy losing his parents at a concentration camp.
It is unknown how much of a role Ian McKellen or Patrick Stewart, who play Magneto and Xavier in the X-Men trilogy respectively, will have as the story will focus on younger characters, hence younger actors.
Goyer's new film, "The Invisible," opens Friday. He's best known for creating the Blade vampire hunter character, and writing the popular "Batman Begins" for Warner Bros."
