New names linked with Fantastic Four reboot
Kit Harington and Saoirse Ronan are amongst the names being linked with Josh Trank's upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four...
With a release date firmly set for March 2015, director Josh Trank will look to be shooting his reboot of the Fantastic Four movie franchise by early next year at the latest. The last we'd heard on it was that Simon Kinberg, of X-Men: Days Of Future Past fame, had been hired to do a script polish on the project. It's also long been reported that Michael B Jordan is the frontrunner for the role of Johnny Storm.
But what about everyone else? Well, according to Variety, Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones), Jack O'Connell and Miles Teller are candidates for the role of Mr Fantastic/Reed Richards.
The role of Sue Storm/ The Invisible Woman meanwhile has a shortlist that apparently includes Margot Robbie, Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan. The latter is certainly cropping up in lots of casting stories this year, having apparently passed on Avengers: Age Of Ultron and auditioned for Star Wars: Episode VII.
There's nothing concrete as of yet, and this may just be names on a list so far. But we'll keep you posted as we hear of more developments...
