The Wrap is reporting that the main cast for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot have finally been assembled! Hollywood was buzzing yesterday with news that Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell were all nearing deals to star in the studio’s reboot of the popular comic book franchise.

     Neither 20th Century Fox or representatives for the actors were available for comment. However, The Wrap further states that Jamie Bell is in heavy discussions to play Ben Grimm, aka The Thing. While his name was never mentioned in connection with the coveted superhero role, it makes sense given his experience in stop-motion films such as Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin.

    Jordan is set to play Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, while Mara is in final negotiations to play his sister Sue Storm, aka the Invisible Woman. At this point, it is still unclear how the film plans on exploring their relationship as siblings - whether one is adopted or whether they share a parent. 

     Teller is the studio’s top choice to play team leader Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic. However, due to commitments to the current Divergent series of films, which will see a sequel filming around the same time as The Fantastic Four, it is still possible that the role of Mr. Fantastic may need to be recast.

     While one studio source cautions that chemistry between the four actors is vital to the casting process and if Teller’s deal doesn’t close, it could affect the casting of The Thing, another insider told The Wrap that Bell is unlikely to be impacted by Teller’s casting.

     Jordan and Teller recently co-starred in That Awkward Moment and are planning to re-team with director Tom Gormican on an untitled heist movie in development at Warner Bros. 

     Mara and Bell share their own history, as both are attached to star in the indie boxing movie Fighting Jacob which coincidentally is being produced by Jordan’s manager Kenny Goodman.

So, what do you guys think? Will this new cast work out as the next Fantastic Four? How do you feel about the casting choices for each character? Will this new reboot be able to fix the mistakes of the Tim Story films? Only time will tell...
