Writer Simon Kinberg expects the film’s tone of the Fox reboot to fall “somewhere on the spectrum between Spider-Man and Chronicle.”
Johnny Depp stars in Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, an A.I. thriller that lacks the necessary spark of humanity.
Acknowledging she doesn’t know much about the film or the source material, the Sue Storm actress says, “I think we’re making a very grounded version of a superhero film.”
As screen tests begin for director Josh Trank’s film, a contender emerges for the role of Ben Grimm: Cemetery Junction star Christian Cooke.
With the rewrite complete, Josh Trank’s franchise reboot is expected to test such actors as Kit Harington, Richard Madden and Saoirse Ronan, but Michael B. Jordan already may be set for Human Torch role.
Kit Harington and Saoirse Ronan are among the actors rumored to have offers to read for the roles of Reed Richards and Sue Storm in Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot.
