THE FANTASTIC FOUR Shoot To Close Louisiana Streets; Young 'Reed Richards' & 'Ben Grimm' Cast

Principal photography on The Fantastic Four reboot has been quietly underway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, since the beginning of May, but come this weekend, the production will finally be moving filming on-location and closing busy streets in the process. Under the working title Henry Street, the Fox production has alerted locals that "sections of two downtown streets will be closed this weekend while [...] crews will be filming scenes using the interior and exterior of the building at 150 3rd Street." The filming notice specified: "From approximately 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 21, until 1 a.m. Sunday, June 22, police will close the portion of 3rd Street between North Boulevrd and Florida Street, as well as Convention Street between 4th Street and Lafyette streets." Hopefully we'll finally get a look at one, if not all, of the principle actors  in costume.

Beyond producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg reassuring that director Josh Trank's take on Marvel's First Family will be dark and grounded, things have been pretty quiet lately on The Fantastic Four front. However, as filming has progressed, the Internet Movie Database has been adding minor roles in the 2015 film. It seems Reed Richard's (Miles Teller) mother may have a role in The Fantastic Four with actress Mary Rachel Dudley supposedly playing Mrs. Richards. It appears we can also expect to see a young Mr. Fantastic and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), with young actors Owen Judge and Evan Hannemann filling those roles, respectively. What do you think?

Anyhow, directed by Josh Trank, The Fantastic Four reboot also stars Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm), Kate Mara (Sue Storm), Toby Kebbell (Victor von Doom), Reg E. Cathey (Dr Franklin Storm), and Tim Blake Nelson (Harvey Elder), and is scheduled for release on June 19, 2015.

Well, filming there worked out well for GL.
yossarian - 6/19/2014, 11:57 AM
Did Turk ever admit he was wrong about everything?
EzioKenway1225 - 6/19/2014, 11:57 AM
AlegendaryPanda-i hope so too, he is one of my favorite villains and i HATED the take on Dr Doom in the previous two FF movies
Gprez2020 - 6/19/2014, 11:58 AM
Please fox don't give him hooves!
Pasto - 6/19/2014, 11:58 AM
You mean Tucks? And no. He never admits when he's wrong.
themidnightking - 6/19/2014, 11:59 AM
The Fantastic Four shouldn't be "Dark & Grounded", It should be Fantastical & Somewhat Light Hearted to a degree
cipher - 6/19/2014, 11:59 AM
Girl's got a nice bounce to 'er.
yossarian - 6/19/2014, 12:00 PM
Yeah Tucks. My bad. He is hype also. Ya'll need to pick a [frick]ing name and roll.
Pasto - 6/19/2014, 12:01 PM
Lol, never Yoss. Never.
EzioKenway1225 - 6/19/2014, 12:02 PM
also i didnt know this but apparently Darth Vader was inspired by Doctor Doom cause Lucas was a big marvel fan
BenderBendingRodriguez - 6/19/2014, 12:03 PM
The article should say young and younger Richards and Grimm lol
DeusExSponge - 6/19/2014, 12:03 PM
Well the film is happening so no use in complaining! If anything I hope they make Doom the badass he is!
themidnightking - 6/19/2014, 12:03 PM
@Ezio
*Glass shattering*
It adds up!

If dr doom has hooves it'll be weird af. But I'm looking forward to seeing the thing in cgi
EzioKenway1225 - 6/19/2014, 12:07 PM
i wonder how the costumes will look like
McNyagano - 6/19/2014, 12:07 PM

yossarian - 6/19/2014, 12:08 PM
Why would Doom have hooves?
YoungThanos - 6/19/2014, 12:09 PM
Boooooooo!

We hate you FOX, Boooooo!

EzioKenway1225 - 6/19/2014, 12:10 PM
DeusEX-i hope Doom is great, especially since Toby Kebbell is playing him who is playing Koba, the main ape villain in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and that final trailer showed Koba to be a potentially great villain
EzioKenway1225 - 6/19/2014, 12:10 PM
Yossarian-Ultimate Doctor Doom has Hooves
TheManFromMars - 6/19/2014, 12:12 PM
@Gprez2020

Gprez2020 - 6/19/2014, 12:12 PM
And seeing as the rest of the cast resembles the ultimate version and they stated they were going the ultimate route is good just without the hooves lol @yossarian
cipher - 6/19/2014, 12:13 PM
I think Brony Doom would be all kinds of badass.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/19/2014, 12:13 PM
@Ezio

Toby Kebbell looks so badass as Koba!

Gprez2020 - 6/19/2014, 12:13 PM
@themanfrommars that's for all the bronys! Haha but not the fantastic four.
GA15 - 6/19/2014, 12:14 PM
don't care. not fan of FF4 any way i blame fox for that with those bad FF4 movies.
yossarian - 6/19/2014, 12:14 PM
Ahhhh. Thanks. Weird.
sKeemAn - 6/19/2014, 12:18 PM
I guess I'll have to try an enjoy the happenings of this film. This cast does not fulfill my expectations of F4.
blackandyellow - 6/19/2014, 12:18 PM
Doom's a clopper.
HypeExMachina - 6/19/2014, 12:21 PM
why isn't FOX news anchor Rachel Maddow playing his mother?

sKeemAn - 6/19/2014, 12:21 PM
@ Nomis

MexicanChinman - 6/19/2014, 12:22 PM
@EzioKenway1225, Darth Vader was inspired by Dr. Doom? That fricking awesome.
