Fox Remembers They Should Cast People For Their Fantastic Four Reboot, Possibly Shortlists Their First Actress

Chronicle director Josh Trank‘s The Fantastic Four reboot is supposed to start filming next month for a 2015 release, so it’s kind of odd that nary a cast member has been announced yet. But the dry spell might be coming to an end, as it’s being reported that Allison Williams is on the shortlist for an unspecified role (but it’s probably Sue Storm, who’re we kidding?).
The news came courtesy of Deadline, which noted Williams’ possible involvement in The Fantastic Four as part of a story on how she’s snagged her first film role in director Shawn Levy‘s (Night at the Museum, Date Night) Shakespeare-themed Rosaline. Williams is best known for her work on HBO’s Girls, where she plays the responsible, uptight Marnie. Shameless actor Noel Fisher was the subject of another The Fantastic Four rumor last month, but nothing’s come of that since then.
You’re supposed to start filming on June 17th, The Fantastic Four reboot. That’s six and a half weeks from now. I’d say I’m concerned you don’t have a cast yet, but… I don’t really care about you all that much. Sorry. I might start if you cast some good people, though! In a world of Man of Steels and The Avengers 2s and that Justice League movie that will probably get made at some point (maybe?), you are the red-headed stepchild. C’mon. Impress me.
