According to multiple reports, actors Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell are in final negotiations to star in “Fantastic Four,” which is scheduled for release on June 19, 2015.

Teller, who would play Mister Fantastic, and Jordan, who is confirmed to play The Human Torch, have worked together in the recent past: They co-starred in the bro-com “That Awkward Moment.”

Kit Harrington and Richard Madden, who star in the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” also reportedly auditioned for the part of Mister Fantastic.

Kate Mara, who currently stars in the wildly popular Netflix series “House of Cards,” is up for the part of Invisible Girl. Jamie Bell would portray Ben Grimm, aka “The Thing.” The British actor has starred in such films as “Man on a Ledge,” and the Lars Von Trier film “Nymphomanic.”

The film is said to be based on “The Ultimate Fantastic Four” comics, in which the characters are younger than they were in the original series, which was the basis for the prior two “Fantastic Four” movies.
