After months of rumors, testing finally begins this month for roles in Josh Trank’s reboot of the “Fantastic Four” franchise at 20th Century Fox. Scribe Simon Kinberg has reportedly just completed his script rewrites.
Amongst those expected to screen test are Miles Teller, Kit Harington and Richard Madden for the role of Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan for Sue Storm (The Invisible Girl), and Michael B. Jordan for the role of Johnny Storm (The Human Torch).
No talk has emerged about who might portray Ben Grimm (The Thing). The film is slated to begin shooting this March in Baton Rouge, Louisiana ahead of a June 2015 release.
