Production is set to begin in June on Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, but we’ve yet to hear about any casting news for the 20th Century Fox film. However, we now have the first news regarding someone being up for a role in the film. Deadline reports that Girls star Allison Williams is on a short list for the upcoming reboot of Marvel’s first family.
“I’ve heard Williams is also on the short for the Fantastic Four reboot, which is in the very early talking stage.”
While the site doesn’t specify what role the actress is up for, it is more than likely that she is being considered for the role of Sue Storm/Invisible Woman. This doesn’t mean she is in negotiations for the role, just that she is currently being considered. If production is really set to begin in June, we should expect to start hearing some solid casting news regarding the project very soon.
Fantastic Four is set to hit theaters March 5th, 2015
