"Fantastic" Reboot Rumours Fly

20th Century Fox's plan to reboot the "Fantastic Four" franchise continues to gain momentum ahead of its planned production sometime next year for release Summer 2012.

Rumours began last week that Adrien Brody and Amber Heard were being pursued to star as Mr. Fantastic and Sue Storm respectively.

Then on Satuday came online buzz (via Latino Review) that "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer is up for Doctor Doom who will be shown as the ruler of Latveria in the property.

The report also said Alice Eve is in contention for Sue Storm, while "90210" star Kevin Pennington would be up for playing Johnny Storm.

Then today Comic Book Movie reported that Fox is pursuing Joe Carnahan ("The A-Team," "Smokin’ Aces"), David Yates ("Harry Potter 5-7," "State of Play: The Mini-Series") and James McTeigue ("Ninja Assassin," "V for Vendetta") as potential directing candidates with one of the trio to get an offer soon.

The site also claims Fox is interested in having Bruce Willis voice The Thing which will be a CG animated character for much of the film.

So far though, all of this is mere speculation with nothing even close to being locked in as yet.
