Kate Mara was recently cast as Sue Storm in the forthcoming
reboot, and has been talking about what we can expect from Josh Trank’s take on the comic-book.
“Well, I don’t know very much about it, which is weird but true!” begins Mara. “All I know is that it’s going to be a very different take on the film, which people may not expect.”
“I’m not really familiar with the comic books," she continues. "I picked up a few when I got the part. I think we’re making a very grounded version of a superhero film. I trust Josh Trank’s vision as I was a huge fan of Chronicle .”
Just what she means by “grounded” remains to be seen, but if Chronicle is anything to go by, we’d suggest it means a departure from the Technicolor chirpiness of the 2005 version in favour of something a little murkier…
Directed by Trank and co-starring Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, The Fantastic Four will open in the UK on 18 June 2015.
