Kate Mara & Jamie Bell Up For 'Fantastic Four' Reboot
The “Fantastic Four” may have found its last two members!
According to Variety, the cast is almost complete with “House of Cards” star Kate Mara reportedly joining the reboot as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman.
Additionally, Jamie Bell is expected to play Ben Grimm/The Thing, in the reimagining of the Marvel movie directed by Josh Trank.
Michael B. Jordan, who has long been the front-runner for the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch was recently cagey when Access Hollywood asked him about playing the super-hot (literally!) hero.
“I can’t even — you know how it is in the industry! I can’t talk [about it] - it’s still up in the air,” Michael said with a laugh, when asked if he’ll be suiting up alongside Mister Fantastic, The Thing and Invisible Woman. “I just can’t. It’s one of things where, certain people start talking too soon and then what if it doesn’t happen for whatever reason?
“Then I’m the guy who was out there talking about something that coulda, shoulda, woulda, but didn’t,” he added.
Miles Teller is also reportedly playing Reid Richards/Mr. Fantastic in the movie set to debut on June 19, 2015.
