Fantastic news, guys!!!!
21st Century Fox seems to believe they’ve found the solution for all of their Marvel movies that become financial successes but critical failures – they just hit the ‘restart’ button on the franchise and reboot it. That’s what Bryan Singer and Matthew Vaughn are doing right now with the X-Men: First Class prequel/reboot, and that is the treatment Fox is planning next for Fantastic Four (2005). The crux of their strategy? Hire better actors! That’s actually not such a bad idea.
Although I wasn’t blown away by the news that The Thing (formerly Michael Chiklis) would be completely computer-generated, or that Alice Eve and Amber Heard could be playing Sue Storm, I am actually quite surprised to be hearing that Adrien Brody and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are on the studio’s shortlist to play Mr. Fantastic, the genius scientist whose body is elastic. According to sources who recently spoke to Screen Rant, either of the big name talents could be signing on to replace Ioan Ruffudd, who played Reed Richards in the previous two films.
Do you remember Jonathan appearance on Bonnie Hunt show back in May? We actually posted only first part of the interview because part two wasn’t available back then. But now thanks to Helen, we can watch this interview in full
Click here to read Jonathan’s recent interview with Daily Mail (sigh!). He talks about his 33rd birthday, battle with addiction, Hollywood career, girlfriend Reena, etc.
I’m sorry that I didn’t post it earlier, had some serious problems with my computer.
Jonathan turns 33 today. May all his wishes come true. Happy birthday, Jonny!!!!
“News about Jonny for you it has come straight from his brother Ali, that he is doing the next mission impossible film!!”
Thanks Helen <3
