It will soon be clobberin' time...
Variety reports that the script for Fox's reboot of The Fantastic Four is done, as Simon Kinberg has completed his rewrite. The studio will begin testing for the roles of Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) and Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman) by the end of the month. Those who will test include Miles Teller, Kit Harrington and Kate Mara.
Teller was asked at Sundance if he would play Richards. He originally said that it "should be happening in the next few weeks," making it sound as though he had signed on. He was simply misunderstood and is actually testing. He is not, however, the frontrunner. In addition to Teller and Harrington, Richard Madden is also up for the role.
Joining Kate Mara in tests for Sue Storm is Saoirse Ronan. Michae B. Jordan is currently set to play Johnny Storm. He will test with the actors to see which group has the best chemistry. Josh Trank will direct with Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn and Gregory Goodman producing. The film arrives on June 19, 2015.
