The casting rumours for the reboot of Fantastic Four have been going on for months, but now it seems things are coming to an end, as Variety reports that Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell are closing deals to star.
Assuming they all sign on the dotted line, Miles Teller will be Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara is Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan is taking on Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and Jamie Bell will tackle the role of Ben Grimm (The Thing).
There may be some issues sorting deals out though. For example Miles Teller is also signed up for the sci-fi sequel Insurgent, which is currently set to shoot at the same time as the superhero reboot. They may be able to sort out the scheduling, but if not Teller may have to be recast.
Josh Trank’s is directing with plans to start filming in Baton Rouge, Louisiana next month.
