The comic book movies are continue to come thick and fast these days and, while we are being introduced to a lot of new superheroes on the big screen, we are also seeing plenty of familiar characters, as well as getting some superhero movie reboots. One such reboot that is on the way is the new The Fantastic Four film, which will see a new, young cast taking on the familiar roles.
One such actor, who has been cast in the role of Reed Richards aka Mr Fantastic in The Fantastic Four reboot, is Miles Teller and the actor has been talking about taking on such a popular character. Miles opened up about what drew him to his The Fantastic Four role, admitting that he was a big fan of the work done by Josh Trank on the hit movie Chronicle.
Teller explained to IGN, "I guess what attracted me originally was Josh Trank. I think Josh Trank is a very creative, inventive guy. You look at Chronicle, you look at what he did for that budget and just how he told the story was really well done. I want to chase directors at this point, and then the cast kind of came together -- Michael B. [Jordan], Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell -- I was very excited."
The Fantastic Four movie reboot is preparing to begin shooting, with principal photography set to begin on March 31. The Fantastic Four reboot will then open on June 18, 2015 in the UK, before hitting the big screen in the US a day later on June 19, 2015.
