Kiefer Sutherland Also Pursued For "The Thing" In <i>Fantastic Four</i> Reboot?

In addition to Bruce Willis, According to Screenrant, Twentieth Century Fox is pursuing Kiefer Sutherland to voice The Thing in the next Fantastic Four film. Check it Out!



The folks at Twentieth Century Fox are apparently hard at work in assembling a cast & director for the summer 2012 release of the Fantastic Four reboot. And while it was reported here earlier today that multi-talented Bruce Willis was pursued by the studio to lend a voice for the humble Ben Grimm (The Thing), Screenrant now reports...

Twentieth Century Fox is pursuing Kiefer Sutherland to voice The Thing in the next Fantastic Four film.

Kiefer Sutherland, Canadian actor, producer and director, is an Emmy Award & Golden Globe award-winner. And is best known for his portrayal of Jack Bauer on the Fox thriller drama series 24. As of 2008, Sutherland has appeared in more than 70 films, most notably The Lost Boys, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, A Few Good Men, Flatliners, Young Guns, The Vanishing, The Three Musketeers, Eye for an Eye, Dark City, To End All Wars and A Time To Kill, The Sentinel and Mirrors.

While it was learned at last month's San Diego Comic-Con, that The Thing would be completely CGI, the only requirement of an actual actor is reportedly in the opening credits and their voice used throughout the remaining of the film. So like Bruce Willis, Sutherland is quite an expensive choice, even at the lend of a voice. But evidently, it's quite early for final decisions, and both actors are only being considered; nothing official.

As for other speculations, FOX is considering Joe Carnahan, David Yates, and James McTeigue for the directors chair. And perusing Adrien Brody (Mr. Fantastic), Alice Eve(Invisible Woman), and Kevin Pennington(Human Torch) for the actors behind the "Fantastic Four" team.

So what do you think of Kiefer Sutherland voicing Ben Grimm in the reboot, and the studio possibly starting filming as soon as next spring?
