Variety is reporting that, following a script polish by Simon Kinberg, Fox is gearing up to start testing actors for their reboot of Fantastic Four. Among the names said to be in the running for Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic are “Game of Thrones’” Kit Harington, Jack O’Connell and the previously-rumored Miles Teller. The actresses said to be up for Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman include Saoirse Ronan, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie.
As previously reported, the only name being tossed around for the Johnny Storm/Human Torch role is Chronicle‘s Michael B. Jordan. No names have been mentioned for the Ben Grimm/The Thing role, but Terry Crews really wants it.
Josh Trank will direct the big screen adaptation, which is currently set for release on March 6, 2015.
