More FF4 Reboot Rumors: Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Adrien Brody for Mr. Fantastic

A completely CG The Thing? Pretty young lasses Amber Heard or Alice Eve as Sue Storm? How about Jonathan Rhys Meyers or Adrien Brody for Mr. Fantastic?

Could happen, if Twentieth Century Fox have their way, at least according to Screenrant. The site quotes unnamed sources as saying that the studio is anxious to get either Meyers (“From Paris with Love”) or Brody (“Predators”) to play Mr. Fantastic in their upcoming reboot of “The Fantastic Four”.

I have no doubt that Brody could play a nerd (he’ll probably have to lose all that muscle he packed on for “Predators”, I would imagine), and Meyers could do the role equally well. Whoever ends up with the role, they’ll be replacing Ioan Gruffudd, who played Mr. Fantastic in both previous “Fantastic Four” and I thought did a pretty good job. Then again, it’s not like Mr. Fantastic had the most fantastic personality of them all, right?

I’m more interested in who will be directing this thing, and what kind of tone Fox wants to take this time around…
