Although her casting is far from a sure thing at this point, Deadline is reporting that Allison Williams, one of the stars of HBO’s “Girls,” is up for a role in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Whether that part is the female lead of Invisible Woman Susan Storm or another role remains to be seen.
Details are currently few on the project all around outside of Trank directing from script by Seth Grahame-Smith, Michael Green and Jeremy Slater. Production is slated to begin soon, however, with the film targeting a March 6, 2015 release.
The rebooted Fantastic Four will mark the third time Marvel’s first family has hit the big screen. Tim Story directed the original Fantastic Four in 2005 and also helmed a sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer in 2007. There was also a 1994 version, produced by Roger Corman. That version has never received an official release.
