According to Variety, 20th Century Fox has found the actors that will bring the Fantastic Four to life in the next big screen adaptation.
Probably the biggest disappointment in the story at Variety is that it makes it out that the cast has already signed the deal, which in fact, not all have.
Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell will join Michael B. Jordan in the latest installment in the comic book franchise.
Kara Mara (House of Cards) has signed a deal to play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, but Jamie Bell (Jumpter) hasn’t received a firm offer to play Benn Grimm, and Miles Teller (Footloose) is still negotiating his contract to play Reid Richards/Mr. Fantastic. Michael B. Jordan (The Wire) was cast as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch a while ago.
While Bell and Teller may still be negotiating, everyone seems to think this is a sure thing, which means the comment section is now ready and waiting for your thoughts and reactions on the casting news. To give you an even bigger incentive to write, write, write, once again, this Fantastic Four movie is based on the Ultimate Universe.
The Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle ) and is expected to arrive in theaters on June 19, 2015.
