re: Fantastic Four - Reboot (2015, D: Trank)

Looks like they may want True Blood's Stephen Moyer as Dr. Doom.



Quote:
As you know Fox is currently in the process of prepping up for production on a new Fantastic Four movie, which will be a complete reboot of the franchise. According to an inside source, the studio is trying to get True Blood star Stephen Moyer to take on the role of Dr. Doom in the film. He's definitely not a bad choice to play the villain, unfortunately as of right now I could care less about seeing another Fantastic Four film. The first two movie's just completely killed any interest in another Fantastic Four movie.

It was also recently reported that Adrien Brody and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are in talks to play Reed Richards a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. Obviously the studio is more interested in bringing Brody into the role, and why wouldn't they!? He's an Oscar winner. Alice Eve is also currently the frontrunner for the role of Susan Storm a.k.a. The Invisible Woman, and Kevin Pennington for Johnny Storm a.k.a. Human Torch.

It was also revealed to Comic Book Movie that the studiois planning to release Fantastic Four in the summer of 2012, so theres a chance it could go up against The Avengers, of course The Avengers will end up being the more successful film.

As far as the screenplay goes it's been revealed that the superhero team's origin story will be told during the opening credits of the film. There's still no director attached to the project but the studio has been holding meeting and it's down to three contenders, and we have no idea who they are... yet.

Amber Heard is also supposedly in the running to play Sue Storm.

re: Fantastic Four - Reboot (2015, D: Trank)

I really didn't have of a problem with the casting, just the stories were so damn weak. Very little tension built up. But I suppose with all those super powers getting them into situations where it'll be tough to get them out is not easy.

Love Alice Eve, check her out in Crossing Over. I just think they'd be trading one woman that was tough to take seriously as a scientist ofr another one.

Steven Moyer would be interesting as Dr. Doom.

I always thought that Rachel McAdams could play Sue Storm, but Alice Eve could be good in it too.

If they're going to keep the film in the present, here's an idea: keep Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Julian McMahon on board. Recast everyone else. Everyone wins.

I think the next installment should be a darker version...like TDK.

re: Fantastic Four - Reboot (2015, D: Trank)

If I were to cast this:

Guy Pearce as Reed Richards



Ben Foster as Johnny Storm



Imogen Poots as Sue Storm



and

The Thing should be totally CG, voiced by Brad Garrett.

Seems like waiting to see how the quasi reboot of X-Men works out before they get too deep into the drawing board for a new Fantastic Four. Maybe I just view the notion of a decline differently.
I believe one of the main reasons X3 cost so much is Ratner was finally hired like 10 months before the scheduled release date, so they needed to dump money on it to ensure the film would be finished quickly and the SFX crew went into overdrive (overtime) to get it done.

I just hope she has the ability to actually deliver the lines instead of sounding like a read-through. Not sure if it was Jessica Alba's delivery or just some bad direction.

re: Fantastic Four - Reboot (2015, D: Trank)

This is by far one of the most confusing film series outside the AvP series. How hard is it to make a good Fantastic Four movie?! you have to be a real fucking retard not to be able to make a good movie out of this.

Apparently her full name (at least according to wikipedia) is "Imogen Gay Poots." Seriously, how is it that no one told her to change her name by now? Imogen Gay Poots? You have to be fucking kidding me.

She's way too young for Sue, especially with the rest of that wishful casting.

Maybe not to hard, but definately expensive to make a good FF movie. The concept is just too "fantastic", for lack of a better word. The only way the FF will ever work is to give it a budget and the effects/look similiar to a Star Wars film. Reed's lab should look like a Star Wars set.
Something about costume heros in a reality setting seems to clash with me. Looks hokey. Almost like mixing animation with live film. For me backdrops like Gotham City, Victorian era, and 1930's/'40s pulp lends credibility to the concepts.
You can't have people in super hero suits running around in a New York that looks like the New York of The French Connection.

She came out in Mystery Men and she was great in it so she got the skills.
