Is Brendan Fraser Up for Mr. Fantastic?

‘Stax’ alerted us that IGN Filmforce has learned that Brendan Fraser is in the running to play Reed Richard, aka Mr. Fantastic, in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four.

Sources close to the studio confirmed that the 35-year-old thesp is a contender for the lead role but emphasized that no official casting has taken place.

According to the industry trades, Fraser, an oft-mentioned contender for Superman, has no other film projects lined up for this summer. That makes him available for Fantastic Four, which begins filming this August in Vancouver.
