After a final rewrite to the script and a long casting process, Fox looks to have assembled the team for its “Fantastic Four” reboot.
Mara recently closed a deal to play play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman. While no offer is out yet, Bell is expected to be tapped to play Ben Grimm/The Thing. Teller has an offer to play Reid Richards/Mr. Fantastic, but deal points are a little further away from being completed.
Teller and Mara have been on Fox’s radar since they were expected to test in November — events that were pushed when Simon Kinberg came on for the last polish on the script.
Bell came into the mix after Fox resumed screen tests.
Jordan has been attached for some time to play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. »
