The screenplay to the Fantastic Four reboot is done, and more names are linked with roles in Josh Trank's film...

Last week, it was revealed that Fantastic Four's shoot was set to kick off at the end of March, with Louisana hosting a large chunk of the filming. Josh Trank is directing the movie, and it seems as though casting details are close.

Thus far, Michael B Jordan has been the one name associated with the film, with the actor set to take on the role of Johnny Storm. Variety now reports that both Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan are in the running for the part of Sue Storm, whilst the shortlist for Reed Richards currently features Miles Teller, Kit Harrington and Richard Madden.

Furthermore, Simon Kinberg has now completed the rewrite work on the screenplay (Kinberg is overseeing the Fantastic Four and X-Men universes for Fox), and the script is apparently pretty much ready to go.

Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015.
