FANTASTIC FOUR Cast May Look Like A Joke But Producer Promises It's Not A Comedy
In the latest issue of Empire magazine X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who is also producing Josh Trank's Fantastic Four, promises that the reboot is not a comedy.
20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank surprised a lot of people with their bold casting choices. Invisible Woman/Sue Storm will be played by House of Cards actress Kate Mara. Chronicle actor Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. The kid who couldn't stop dancing in Billy Elliot, Jamie Bell, is Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Whiplash actor Miles Teller is Reed Richards a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. While the memories of Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd from Tim Story's mediocre Fantastic Four franchise are still fresh in our minds it will be interesting to see Trank's take on these beloved Marvel characters.
Producer Matthew Vaughn weighs in:
"Its a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made polystyrene. And its not a comedy."
