'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington: Will he be in the 'Fantastic Four' reboot?(Read article summary)
'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington is reportedly being considered for a role in the planned 'Fantastic Four' reboot. 'Game of Thrones' actor Kit Harington is also appearing in 'How to Train Your Dragon 2.'
Fans of the Fantastic Four were given something to look forward to when it was announced over one year ago that Chronicle director Josh Trank would be rebooting Marvel’s first family. Recently, Simon Kinberg had been tapped to do rewrites for the upcoming reboot, and now rumors have surfaced on who might be joining the cast.
Over the last few months, there have been plenty of rumors regarding who might play each member of the Fantastic Four. The most noteworthy rumor was that Michael B. Jordan was up for the role of Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch. Since Fox wants to start the production on the Fantastic Four relatively soon, it makes sense that a shortlist would pop up for the lead roles – namely that of Reed Richards and Sue Storm.
According to Deadline, Fox is testing Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Miles Teller (Divergent), and Jack O’Connell (300: Rise of an Empire) for the role of Reed Richards a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. Meanwhile, Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) have joined Alison Williams (Girls) on the rumored list of actresses testing to play Sue Storm a.k.a. The Invisible Woman.
