Jamie Bell is One Fourth of ‘Fantastic Four’ Reboot

Hmm, a little orange tint and we can see the similarity. (Zentropa/CBM)

It seems soon to have a “reboot” of The Fantastic Four, but actually the first of the two movies came out in 2005. We suppose, that is almost ten years ago.

Based on the Ultimate Fantastic Four comic, the next installment of the super hero film is set to star Jamie Bell (FilthBilly Elliot), Michael B. Jordan (That Awkward Moment), Kate Mara (House of Cards, American Horror Story) and Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment, Project X), reports E! News.

Bell has been offered the part of Ben Grimm/The Thing. Aw, Billy Elliot’s mug will be covered up most of the film. Bell isn’t 100 percent signed up, but multiple reports lead us to believe that he will be accepting the part.

The original line-up consisted of three American actors (Chris Evans, Jessica Alba, Michael Chicklis) and a Brit (Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd) funnily enough.

We went to Twitter and it’s not just us:

Do you think Bell is reading these fan reactions too?

The Fantastic Four is scheduled for release on June 19, 2015.

What do you think of the new line-up?
