Fox <strike>Possibly</strike> Not Eyeing ‘Spectacular Now’ Star For ‘Fantastic Four’ Reboot

UPDATE: Director Josh Trank took to Twitter to write, “the casting rumor floating around today isn’t true…. the end.”

Fox seems to be aiming for a younger cast for director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot, as TheWrap passes along a rumor that Miles Teller, the 26-year-old star of Project X and Spectacular Now is up for the role of Reed Richards.

The website reiterates that this is a rumor, noting that the film doesn’t officially have a casting director yet. Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station, Chronicle) and Allison Williams (Girls) have also been mentioned as playing Human Torch and Invisible Woman. They are 26 and 25, respectively.

The film, which is expected to start shooting in Louisiana in September, opens March 6, 2015.
