Miles Teller is having a killer weekend. Not only is his critically acclaimed “The Spectacular Now” opening today, now comes word via The Wrap that the rising star is one of the frontrunners for the Mr. Fantastic role in Josh Trank’s reboot of “Fantastic Four.” The trade also adds that Elizabeth Olsen is in the mix as well, presumably for the role of Sue Storm, aka Invisible Woman.
Again, I’m not saying Miles Teller, Allison Williams or Michael B. Jordan have been cast, just that they’re the names I hear most often.
There are plenty of rumors about ELIZABETH OLSEN too but she doesn’t have a movie coming out today… #FantasticFour
Olsen just wrapped her first go at a big blockbuster franchise hopeful, Gareth Edwards’ reboot of “Godzilla.” She too is more known for smaller indie films, stunning Sundance with “Martha Marcy May Marlene” two years ago. She’ll next be seen opposite Josh Brolin in Spike Lee’s remake of “Oldboy.”
It has been confirmed that Miles Teller will not star in the reboot. No word on Elizabeth yet.
