After getting Simon Kinberg to rewrite the script, it seems like Fox’s Fantastic Four is moving ahead with the casting, as Variety reports that the studio is now getting ready to test for the lead roles, and they have a bunch of notable names trying out for parts.
First on the list is Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington, who is testing for the part of Mr. Fantastic, alongside Jack O’Connell and Miles Teller. For the part of Invisible Girl, the frontrunners are Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, and Kate Mara.
Competition is lax when it comes to the Johnny Storm role, as the only name being attached to the role right now is Michael B. Jordan and there’s practically no news regarding The Thing (we’re hoping that they go for a full CGI/Mo-Cap creature like Marvel did with The Hulk, instead of prosthetics for The Thing.)
