Fantastic Four Sequel Starts Filming

Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer director Tim Story has updated his official Blog and says that filming has started on the sequel:

So it has begun! The Fantastic Four have been photographed for Rise of The Silver Surfer. Felt like old times. Everyone’s back in the mix and really picking their characters up where we last left off.

We also shot Andre Braugher for the first time. He plays General Hager, an old acquaintance of Reed Richards and one of the major additions to the movie. Jessicas is looking amazing. Chris has his energetic performance firing on all cylinders. Ioan looks great and Chiklis is funny as ever as the blue-eyed Thing.

One of the days was pretty long. Just happened to be one of those locations that we can’t come back to and we had a lot of effects shots. Those things always take forever. The background plates, then the actor buy himself, then the crowd. Blah blah blah. Wish we could shoot everything practically, but then again, I guess stretching Ioan may not go over too well.

More to come guys. Fairly straightforward start. 3 days off then we’re back to it.

20th Century Fox will release Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer on June 15, 2007.
