If the deal comes together, Miles Teller would play Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) withKate Mara taking on the role of Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman). Michael B. Jordanwill portray Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and Jamie Bell will tackle the role of Ben Grimm (The Thing), although no official offer is on the table as of yet.
The process will be tricky, because Miles Teller has already signed up to play Peter inNeil Burger’s upcoming sci-fi sequel Insurgent, which is slated to start shooting within the same time-frame as this project. If the dates cross, it is likely that the role will be recast.
Production is expected to begin this March in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
