Fantastic Four line-up 'complete'

Jamie Bell could be cast in the new Fantastic Four film

The Fantastic Four's line-up looks as though it is now complete.

Comic book adaptation The Fantastic Four is undergoing a reboot and, according to Variety, the actors who will be playing the superheroes in their younger days look to have been assembled.

Michael B Jordan was already signed up to play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and has now been joined on the project by Kate Mara, with Miles Teller and Jamie Bell expected to sign up, too.

Kate is going to be Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles has been offered Reid Richards/Mr Fantastic and Jamie is expected to play Ben Grimm/The Thing, although Miles and Jamie are yet to sign deals.

Miles and Kate have been considered by Fox since they screen tested for the roles in November and Jamie came in later when screen tests reopened.

The film is yet to find its villain, with casting expected to take place in the coming weeks.

The Fantastic Four is due to be released in cinemas in June 2015.

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
