Teller: Fantastic Four a good story

Miles Teller has revealed he was drawn to the Fantastic Four reboot because he wanted to work with director Josh Trank.

The Rabbit Hole actor has been cast as Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic in the comic book adaptation - alongside Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan and Jamie Bell - and Chronicle filmmaker Josh will be at the helm.

Miles, 27, told Metro: "Well for me I didn't grow up really as a comic book kid necessarily. Fantastic Four is my dad's favourite superhero comic. And so for me 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."

Miles also said he thinks the movie will be more than just a superhero film.

"When I read the script, I didn't feel like I was reading this larger-than-life, incredible superhero tale," he explained.

"These are all very human people that end up having to become I guess what is known as the Fantastic Four.

"So for me it was just a really good story and gives me an opportunity to play something different from my own skin. It's a proper character and that's my favourite stuff to do."

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

Undermining a person's enthusiasm will only create resentment. If you're tired of being implicated in your loved one's harebrained schemes, have a heart to heart discussion. A temporary separation can help each of you figure out what you want from your relationship. It may be time for you to seek a more practical companion.More
