Fox has picked a foursome for its reboot of "Fantastic Four."

Michael B. Jordan ("Fruitvale Station"/"That Awkward Moment"), Kate Mara ("House of Cards"), Miles Teller ("Divergent"/"The Spectacular Now") and Jamie Bell ("Nymphomaniac") are all in talks to star as a new incarnation of the superhero quartet, Deadline reports.

The roles would be: Jordan as Johnny Storm aka Human Torch; Mara as Sue Storm aka Invisible Woman; Teller as Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic and Bell as Bill Grimm aka the Thing.

Jordan later took to Instagram to confirm the news (writing "FLAME ON!!"), while Mara did the same on Twitter.


 

"Chronicle" director Josh Trank is set to helm the film, which is slated for release in June 2015.
