Now that Fox has hired the services of X-Men scribe Simon Kinberg to produce the script for Fantastic Four, people are wondering which names will be attached to the teams' main characters. Variety recently reported a list of possible contenders.
Harrington, Ronan among contenders
Among the names mentioned include Game of Thrones favorite Kit Harrington to play Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic while Saoirse Ronan has been pegged for the role of his wife Sue Storm aka Invisible Woman.But they're not alone. Other actors lined up to test for various roles include Jack O’Connell and Miles Teller for Mr Fantastic and Kate Mara for Invisible Woman. Michael B. Jordan was also said to be the only one attached for the role of Human Torch, but nothing is set in stone at this point. There was also no word as to who could be playing The Thing.
As much as I love these actors, I find these choices interesting because I think Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman should be older. But what do you guys think? Is this the makings of another bungled Fantastic Four film similar to that of 2005?
The Fantastic Four reboot is pegged for a March 6, 2015 release. Josh Trank (Chronicle) will be directing the film.
