According to TheWarp, 20th Century Fox are courting Chronicle‘s Michael B Jordan for the role of Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot.

The site writes:

Jordan has had multiple meetings at Fox within the last week, and also has a good relationship with Trank. Jordan’s chances depend on whether or not he has chemistry with the other actors up for the highly-anticipated movie, according to one insider.

In the 2005 movie and its 2007 sequel, the character was played by current Captain America star Chris Evans, and coupled with the rumour that Allison Williams will be playing Sue Storm suggests either a different relationship between the two, or a pleasantly more complicated family history than the staid Sixties incarnations of the Marvel superheroes.

Fantastic Four is due in cinemas 6 March 2015. Buy Josh Trank’s Chronicle now on DVD for £9.36 and Blu-ray for £11.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
