Michael B. Jordan Officially Signed On To Play 'Johnny Storm' In FANTASTIC FOUR?
That's what our pals over at Schmoes Know are hearing anyway. They cite a very reliable source who's revealed to them that the Chronicle actor, long rumored to be up for the part, has officially signed on to play the Human Torch in Josh Trank's reboot..
It seems Michael B. Jordan will be "flaming on" as our new Human Torch after all, as the guys over at The Schmoes Know Movies Podcast have exclusively revealed. According to them "a very trusted source within Michael B Jordan’s agency" has confirmed to them that he has just signed on the dotted line, and will play Johnny Storm in Josh Trank's reboot of the Fantastic Four. The young actor has been highly in demand since his turn in Fruitvale Station, and was rumored to be up for quite a few different roles -- one in Star Wars Episode VII among them. Of course we can't post this as 100% accurate until it's confirmed by the studio, but we know the Schmoes have good intel so I'd bet on this popping up in the trades pretty soon..maybe even later on tonight.
