Variety is reporting that Simon Kinberg has turned in his Fantastic Four script and actors are due to begin testing this month.
Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards) and the Invisible Woman (Sue Richards) are first on the list of roles to be filled. Casting rumors are already swirling, with Miles Teller leading the pack for Reed Richards, but Kit Harington and Richard Madden are also on the list.
Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan are expected to test for Sue Storm. Michael B. Jordan is still the man to play Human Torch (Johnny Storm), but he will be brought in to test with other actors for chemistry before finalized. No word on the plans for the Thing at this time.
Josh Trank will direct. The film is due in theaters June 19, 2015.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
