Alice Eve to play Sue Storm in Fantastic Four reboot?Movie News — By Geeker on August 22, 2010 8:24 pm
A rumor is running the web right now originating from ComicBookMovie.com from an un-named Marvel source that Alice Eve who recently sexed up the big screen in She’s Out of MyLeague will be playing Sue Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four Reboot. Fantastic Four was the definition of a really bad comic book movie and the casting of Alice Eve in the reboot certainly is interesting but lets be honest here. Jessica Alba starred in the first one and that didnt do anything to help it.
We first started telling you about the reboot back in March of 09 and nothing much has been happening since other then planning. IESB brought us some great details on the planned project in 09 saying;
The two films previously released never really caught on with the fans and the studio is reportedly looking to completely retool, recast and recrew the franchise. This means no Tim Story, no Iaon, no Julian (thank the maker, he never sat well with me as Dr. Doom), no Chris, no Chiklis and no Jessica.
The franchise is looking to be “less bubble gum” this time round following the Iron Man template, which was a complete success in reviews and box office take but a bit darker when it came to its superhero. Iron Man was in no way as dark as The Dark Knight but was funny, action-y as well as a bit on the serious side.
Clearly by capitalizing on what Dark Knight and Iron Man did right is a good thing but imitating and not bringing something creatively new will not help the franchise. Fantastic Four can work in a reboot but it needs to have the right people behind the camera as well as in front of it.
