The Fantastic Four reboot script has just been completed, and now the search is on for the cast.
It looks like the Fantastic Four reboot movie is starting to move full steam ahead. Variety is reporting that screenwriter – and new Marvel overseer for Fox Movies – Simon Kinberg has finished the FF script and now the search is on to fill the iconic roles with some famous faces. Chronicle‘s Josh Trank is directing, and there looks to be a reunion as Michael B. Jordan will be screen testing with groups of actors and actress to test for chemistry.
Of course, this leads us to believe that while there has been no official signing, Michael B. Jordan seems to be the centerpiece for the movie if people are being brought to test with him. As the rumored Johnny Storm/Human Torch, maybe we will see a change of pace with him as the lead as opposed to Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic. Of course, this is mere speculation as the roles have yet to be officially announced.
What we do know is that screen tests are to happen the end of the month, with Miles Teller being rumored for the Reed Richards role, alongside Game of Thrones actors Kit Harrington and Richard Madden. As for the Sue Storm/Invisible Woman role, fingers have been pointing to House of Cards‘ Kate Mara, Girls‘ Allison Williams and Hanna‘s Saoirse Ronan.
With the movie slated to begin filming in Louisiana at the end of March, expect more news to pop up soon with production ramping up so the film can make it’s June 19, 2015 release date.
