Director Josh Trank has said the synopsis is false and that it's not true.
"that synopsis is definitely not the synopsis or anything close to the synopsis. i don’t know who put that out. byyee."
A new plot synopsis for the Josh Trank-directed reboot of Fantastic Four has been leaked thanks to a casting call. I'm not sure how happy fans are going to be with it though, as it looks like they changed the origin story of the classic superhero team. If you are looking for another reason to rant about the upcoming reboot, then this should give you some fuel.
This is very different from any origin story I've ever seen for the Fantastic Four. There's a chance that this may not be what we see in the final product, but it will be really interesting if it is. I definitely wasn't expecting to see this from the movie. That could be a good thing, or it could be bad. I guess we'll just have to see how it turns out.
As far as the casting and where it currently stands, Michael B. Jordan will be playing Johnny Storm. Miles Teller, Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, and Richard Madden are up for Reed Richards. Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan are in the running for Sue Storm.
Apparently, production of the film is supposed to start in a few weeks, so we can expect some official casting announcements in the near future.
The movie is scheduled to be released June 19th, 2015.
