Hi, Bryan Here….
Fox is rebooting it’s superhero franchise, ‘Fantastic Four‘ with Josh Trank (Chronicle) directing. It seems now that Trank and Fox has found its leading heroes. Miles Teller, Kata Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell are set to star in the Marvel Comic adaptation. This is great news and one hell of a cast.
Michael B. Jordan will be Johnny Storm/The Human Torch.
Kate Mara will be Sue Storm/Invisible Girl.
Jamie Bell will be Ben Grimm/The Thing.
Miles Teller will be Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic.
Now Michael B. Jordan and Josh Trank worked together on ‘Chronicle already where Jordan and Teller recently starred in the comedy, ‘That Awkward Moment‘. The script for this remake has gone through many re-writes, but it seems like everyone is happy with the current one. Fox wants to release this reboot on June 19th, 2015, and let’s hope all goes to plan, or else they will have to postpone again.
This is Fox’s second round of making a Fantastic Four franchise. The first round, which consisted of two movies, released in 2005 and 2007, and saw Ioan Gruffudd play Richards, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/Invisible Girl, Chris Evans as the Johnny Storm and Michael Chiklis as Grimm, according to THR. Let’s hope this goes well. No word on who will be playing Dr. Doom yet, but I expect an announcement any time now.
