We may well know the cast for the Fantastic Four reboot soon enough. Variety reports that Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Saoirse Ronan (Byzantium), Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) and more are set to receive offers to test for the principle rols in the film.
According to the site, sources say that Harington, Jack O'Connell and Miles Teller are set to revived test offers to read for Reed Richards while Ronan, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie will be tested for Storm. Michael B. Jordan is the currently the only name mentioned as a possibility for Johnny Storm, though that may change. No names have yet been mentioned for the villain or Ben Grimm.
Simon Kinberg was recently brought on to do rewrite work for the script, which has yet to get an official greenlight. However, Kinberg isn't expected to give the film a full rewrite treatment. Josh Trank is set to direct, with production set for early next year.
