You know what “that awkward moment” in the “Fantastic Four” casting process was? It could be when Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller were cast as half of the titular quartet and not their co-star, Zac Efron.
Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”) and Teller (“The Spectacular Now”) will reunite in a reboot of the comic book franchise as Johnny “Human Torch” Storm” and Reed “Mr. Fantastic” Richards, respectively, according to Deadline.
Rounding out the Four are “House of Cards” actress Kate Mara as Sue "Invisible Woman" Storm and “Les Miserables” up-and-comer Jamie Bell as the Thing.
The details on the plot for the remake are fuzzy, but now that the four leads have been found, attention can turn to the film’s villain.
The 2015 reboot will come ten years after the original silver screen “Fantastic Four” with Ioan Gruffudd and Jessica Alba.
