All new Fantastic Four script and cast

25 July 2014, 08:38

Los Angeles  - The new Fantastic Four will be "different from other comic book films".

Scriptwriter Simon Kinberg has promised the ambitious reboot of the superhero franchise will be unlike anything fans have seen in previous movies in the genre, such as The Avengers and the X-Men films.

He told Latino-Review.com: "We are hopefully going to be refining the way the people see the Fantastic Four movies. There are so many things we are doing different from the previous film and so many things different from other comic books films."

The Josh Trank-directed movie will be a stark departure from the critically mauled 2005 and 2007 Fantastic Four films which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans.

The new take will star Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing.

Kinberg is also the writing talent behind the acclaimed X-Men: Days of Future Past - as well as its 2016 follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse - but fans shouldn't expect an Avengers -style crossover between the two series.

The scribe explained: "I would love to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four team up if only because I'm a fan and certainly it's something we've thought about and talked about.

"The challenge is that they essentially live in different universes. In the X-Men world of the movies, we never hear them talk about a famous super team called the Fantastic Four and in the Fantastic Four movie, they are fantastic because they are the only ones of their kind, meaning there aren't other people with super powers on the streets.

"So given that they exist in these different domains or dimensions there are some inherent challenges."
