Rumors have already started to surface for Josh Trank’s planned reboot of The Fantastic Four movie franchise, and it seems to be pointing towards a much younger cast this time around. There’s already reports that Michael B. Jordan will be playing Johnny Storm and Miles Teller is also rumored to be playing Mr. Fantastic, now there are reports floating around that Josh Gad has been linked to the role of Ben Grimm.
There’s no other details so it wasn’t clear whether Josh is only linked to the role of the human Ben Grimm or whether they’re also going to map his face on the CGI Thing, like Marvel did with Mark Ruffalo and the Hulk.
As for Sue Storm, it has been reported that both Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan have tested for the role. Assuming that all the rumors are true, it seems like Trank’s main cast for his Fantastic Four reboot are already filled out. We believe we’re going to get more news soon, as it’s already been slated for a June 19, 2015 release.
