According to Variety, David Goyer has signed on to direct the upcoming X-Men spinoff, Magneto
In the film, a young Magneto seeks revenge on the Nazis who killed his family while befriending a young Charles Xavier.
"It's the story of Magneto's life, and it will span some years," said producer Avi Arad.
Lauren Shuler Donner told USA Today that, a new actor will portray the younger Magneto, but Sir Ian McKellen will nevertheless reprise his role for the film.
Goyer plans to alter a script for the film which was written by Sheldon Turner.
