Miles Teller as Reed Richards in Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four' Reboot?
It sounds like the new cast of Fantastic Four is going to be much younger than the recent big screen attempt to bring the foursome to life. Previously, we heard that Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan might reteam with director Josh Trank for the Marvel reboot, but that's yet to be confirmed. Now word comes from The Wrap that Fox is also looking at The Spectacular Now and 21 and Over star Miles Teller to play Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, in the developing tentpole. However, word on the street is that the script still needs some work and there isn't even a casting director yet, so this may just be wishlist casting for now.
However, Teller has reportedly still met with Trank, and he's the director's top choice. The actor has plenty of charisma and genuine talent, and The Spectacular Now (hitting limited theaters today) will prove that to audiences. Now if Trank could line up Shailene Woodley for Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), we'd have great chemistry for the superhero couple. But who would play Ben Grimm, aka The Thing? Nick Frost would be amazing, but he's seems too old for the young cast. Who do you want in Fantastic Four?
