Game Of Thrones’ star Kit Harrington is up for a part in the reboot of Fantastic Four.
According to Variety the actor is being considered for the role of Reed Richards, the superhero who can turn his body into different shapes and sizes.
The publication claims that the role is also being pursued by Jack O’Connell and Miles Teller.
Casting is also underway for the role of Sue Storm, the character originally played by Jessica Alba in the first two Fantastic Four movies. In the running are Saoirse Ronan, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie. Deadline in April announced Allison Williams as a front runner for the role but she is missing from the newest round of rumors.
Believed to be taking the role of Jonny Storm is Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan.
There have been no rumors in regards to the role of Ben Grimm (The Thing).
The Game Of Thrones’ star and other hopefuls for the role will start work in 2014. The Fantastic Four reboot is meant to start shooting in early 2014 and open in 2015.
In the meantime if you can’t get enough of Kit Harrington you can now download every episode of Game of Thrones from the Google Play store. The series was the most pirated of 2012 and 2013 which might explain why its actors and actresses have been given so much press lately, and now apparently the opportunity to play roles in major Hollywood blockbusters.
Do you think Kit Harrington would be a good choice for Reed Richards?
