Fox looks to have completed its casting for
The Fantastic Four
, with Jamie Bell, Miles Teller and Kate Mara all in final negotiations to join the project.
According to THR , discussions with the trio are at an advanced stage, with Michael B. Jordan already on board Josh Trank’s franchise reboot.
Mara is set to play Sue Storm, AKA Invisible Woman, while Teller will play Reed Richards, otherwise known as Mr. Fantastic, provided some potential scheduling hurdles can be overcome.
Jamie Bell is the surprise name in the equation, with the report claiming he was contacted for the role of Ben Grimm (The Thing) after no suitable candidates presented themselves during testing.
Michael B. Jordan will complete the foursome as Johnny Storm (Human Torch) when the film opens in the UK on 18 June 2015.
