Simon Kinberg Turned in Fantastic Four Script + Testing for Leads Later in Month!

A little over 4 months ago, 20th Century Fox gave screenwriter Simon Kinberg the duty to rewrite the Fantastic Four reboot script. He delivered on the deal and sent it in today! That means we are getting progress on this severely pushed back film. Thats not all the big news on it either! They said testing for main characters Reed Richards and Sue Storm will be later this month if things go right.

The screen-testing that Variety magazine says is happening will involve Miles Teller, Kit Harington, Richard Madden and a few others. I'm rooting for Richard Madden. He looks the part! Now for the other strange casting choices. They want Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan to test for Sue Storm. They are so young and I don't want a young FF team. I want a little more seasoned team, but this news isn't the most shocking.

The only actor known to be attached to the project for some time now is Michael B. Jordan. He is a great actor and I think he could be great but this film will make some enemies not on the racial side because he's black, but because they are messing with a Marvel character that has been around forever. Fanboys don't like change, but good things can happen when you do that. No news has been said on Ben Grimm/The Thing. I don't even know if he's in the film?! I have faith in director Josh Trank and his vision for now. I only ask to make an actual great FF movie for us fans. If not, send the property back on over to Marvel for a proper film.

More news to come!

Expect to see Fantastic Four in theaters June 19, 2015
