We're still yet to get official confirmation from 20th Century Fox as to the cast (even though it seems all but assured at this point), but with The Fantastic Four gearing up to go into production this month, producer Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) has spoken briefly about the reboot to Empire, during which he made sure to distance it from Fox's previous Ff movies.
"It’s a total reboot. It’s got nothing to with the other bloody ones," said Vaughn, referring to Fantastic Four and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, both of which starred Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis as Marvel's First Family. "It’s not a stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it’s made of polystyrene. And it’s not a comedy."
Let's hope that they do stick with some of the source material, »

The 2005 film starred Jessica Alba, Ioan Gruffudd, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis as four friends who gained superpowers after exposure to radiation. The cast returned for 2007 sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer.
"It's a total reboot. It's got nothing to with the other bloody ones," Vaughn told Empire.
"It's not a stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made of polystyrene. And it's not a comedy."
Fantastic Four is due to hit cinemas on June 19, 2015. »
20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank surprised a lot of people with their bold casting choices. Invisible Woman/Sue Storm will be played by House of Cards actress Kate Mara. Chronicle actor Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. The kid who couldn't stop dancing in Billy Elliot, Jamie Bell, is Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Whiplash actor Miles Teller is Reed Richards a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. While the memories of Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd from Tim Story's mediocre Fantastic Four franchise are still fresh in our minds it will be interesting to see Trank's take on these beloved Marvel characters. Producer Matthew Vaughn weighs in: "Its a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made polystyrene. »
Jason Reitman staged the fifth instalment of his Live Read series, in which Hollywood stars read through classic movie scripts.
Lacma's Bing Theater was filled with over 600 people to watch the event, where no recording equipment or phones were allowed inside.
Caplan played Honey Bunny in the opening scene at the diner, with Hill as Pumpkin.
Pierce portrayed gangster Marsellus Wallace, while Rogen read the part of Lance, Vincent Vega's drug dealer.
Gordon-Levitt read Vincent, in the style of John Travolta, with Peele as Samuel L Jackson's Jules. Both actors wore black suits and ties, »
Guest director Evan Goldberg, co-writer of “This Is the End,” led the live read with a surprise cast featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Wendell Pierce, Rebecca Romijn, Jordan Peele, Lizzy Caplan, Nick Kroll and Michael Chiklis.
The 600 seats were completely filled inside Lacma’s Bing Theater with tons of people on standby hoping to grab a straggling seat. No phones or recordings were allowed in the theater.
Caplan channeled her best Honey Bunny in the opening scene at the diner, with Hill as Pumpkin, sans London accent. “Any of you fucking pricks move, and I’ll execute every motherfucking last one of ya!” screamed Caplan, just as Amanda Plummer did in the film. The audience broke out in cheers.
From then, the live read really took off. »

When Quentin Tarantino's brilliant, groundbreaking Pulp Fiction was released twenty years ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was the 13-year-old star of the Disney sports comedy Angels in the Outfield. Last night, he starred in a live reading of Pulp Fiction as Vincent Vega (John Travolta's character), effectively getting a do-over on 1994.
The Film Independent at Lacma Live Read, now in its third season of unrehearsed public performances of classic screenplays with new actors, was founded by Jason Reitman, who has stepped aside in recent months in favor of a sequence of guest directors. »

Josh Trank's 'The Fantastic Four' is currently in pre-production but the superhero spandex has now officially been filled.

'Divergent's Miles Teller is playing Mr Fantastic, 'Chronicle' star Michael B. Jordan is set to play the Human Torch whilst 'Billy Elliot' actor Jamie Bell will be making some clobberin' time available to play 'The Thing'. The movie will be released 10 years after the studio's 'Fantastic Four' adaptation which landed back in theatres in 2005 and starred Jessica Alba ('Sin City'), Chris Evans ('Captain America'), Michael Chiklis ('The Shield') and Ioan Gruffodd ('Ringer'). »
The actors have joined Michael B Jordan in the process of closing deals for 20th Century Fox's superhero movie, according to The Wrap.
Bell is in line to play Ben Grimm/The Thing, with Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Teller as Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic.
Jordan has been assumed for the role of the Human Torch for some time, though has remained cagey about confirming his involvement.
This is the first time Bell's name has been attached to the reboot, although sources claim a deal is yet to be finalised.

Teller is said to be the top contender to play team leader Mr Fantastic - aka Reed Richards.
Meanwhile, Jordan has signed on to play Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, while Mara is said to be in final negotiations to play Sue Storm, also known as the Invisible Woman.
The new "Fantastic Four" is here.
Fox is in the process of making deals with the four actors who they've chosen to jump-start the reboot of the Marvel superhero franchise, THR reports. So who are they? "House of Cards" star Kate Mara, Jamie Bell (from AMC's upcoming "Turn"), Miles Teller ("That Awkward Moment"), along with long-rumored Michael B. Jordan.
Mara will take on the role of Sue Storm/Invisible Girl, while Bell will star as Ben Grimm/The Thing alongside Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic. Jordan, of course, is attached at Johnny Storm/the Human Torch.
Teller and Mara were rumored to be on their roles' respective shortlists since October, with Jordan in the mix long before that. The surprise name here is Bell, as no real casting rumors for The Thing had been in circulation.
The reboot, to be directed by Josh Trank, is slated for release on »
It’s hard to tell for certain what’s really going on with Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot over at 20th Century Fox, since we haven’t been given any official plot details just yet. Today, however, the project has taken another step forward as Variety is reporting that the titular superhero group has been cast.
We’ve known for a while now that Michael B.

Now, we have word that House of Cards star Kate Mara has signed on to play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman and Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin) has been offered the role of Ben Grimm, better known as the rock-infused muscle of the team, The Thing.

Director Josh Trank's upcoming cinematic reboot of Marvel Comics' first family of superheroes will be based on the contemporary comics series 'The Ultimate Fantastic Four' and released in theaters on June 19th, 2015. 20th Century Fox has already released two Fantastic Four films in 2005 and 2007 directed by Tim Story and starring Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis.

Now we just may have a clue to why.
On Tuesday night (Feb. 11), wire fox terrier Afterall Painting the Sky -- or "Sky," to her friends -- took top honors as Best in Show at the 2014 edition of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
West Coast Facebook friends and Twitter followers of Ryan, and those who hadn't gotten around to watching the show on DVR, pretty quickly got the result spoiled for them. But Ryan had the purest of motives and the best of reasons -- Sky belongs to his mother.
Ryan, the proud owner of two golden retrievers, took some time out from Writers Guild of America negotiations with the Alliance of Motion »
We don’t know much about Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot, besides the semi-fact that Michael B. Jordan is maybe-probably playing the Human Torch. (Though Michael B. Jordan is also maybe-probably in every movie coming out between now and 2016.) But The Hollywood Reporter claims that the 20th Century Fox film has begun the casting search in earnest, auditioning new actors to play the cosmic ray-ified superheroes. The report also claims that Michael B. Jordan is definitely playing the Human Torch, although Fox would not comment on that or any casting detail when contacted by EW.

Turns out, it's not clobberin' time for Josh Gad. The Internet has been buzzing with the rumor that the "Book of Mormon" and "Frozen" funnyman was testing for the role of Ben Grimm, a.k.a. the Thing, in the new "Fantastic Four" reboot.
