Kit Harington and Saoirse Ronan to test for The Fantastic Four

Having recently added Simon Kinberg to rewrite the script , Fox's Fantastic Four reboot looks to be moving ahead with casting, with a whole host of names set to test for the leading roles.

According to Variety , Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington is set to test for the part of Reed Richards, (perhaps better known as Mr. Fantastic) alongside Jack O'Connell and Miles Teller.

Meanwhile, Saoirse Ronan, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie make up the frontrunners to play Sue Storm (Invisible Girl), with the trio all set to meet with the studio in due course.

Michael B. Jordan remains the only name to be linked to Johnny Storm (Human Torch), while we've heard nothing at all as to who might play The Thing or indeed the villain of the piece.

With Josh Trank in place to direct, The Fantastic Four is currently slated for a US release date of 6 March 2015, with a UK date to be confirmed.
