The Fantastic Four to begin production in Louisiana this September

Jul. 24, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Studios are always looking for the most cost-effective locations to film their projects which is why Canadian cities has often been a cheaper alternative to stand in for major American cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. In an effort to lure more productions to their states, many offer incentives and tax breaks to producers. Louisiana is one such state.

Despite recent efforts to lessen the incentives, the bill has failed and those breaks are still in place. The Wrap is reporting that one such production that is taking advantage of this will be Josh Trank's THE FANTASTIC FOUR, which was slated to film in Vancouver.

More interesting is that the article also claims that Trank will begin production on THE FANTASTIC FOUR this September. Production does not necessarily mean filming, but it does mean that we will likely be hearing news regarding casting and sooner rather than later. Will we learn that Michael B. Jordan is the new Human Torch? Is Allison Williams the new Sue Storm? Time will tell.

THE FANTASTIC FOUR has always been centralized in New York City, so it is odd that the entire production is moving to Louisiana, a location that has never been used for filming a Marvel film. Will local cities serve as a stand-in for NYC or will THE FANTASTIC FOUR shoot in the city at some point?

THE FANTASTIC FOUR is scheduled to open on March 6, 2015.

Not even going to bother with the Human Torch shouldn't be black argument, it's senseless

I however would like to know who they intend on casting and who the FF will be up against this time around.

The cast I want to see is:

For Mr. Fantastic I would like to see Matt Bomer, John Rhys Meyers, or Adrien Brody. For Sue, either Alice Eve or Yvonne Strahovski. For Johnny Storm Jensen Ackles and for The Thing, Dean Morris, Chris Bauer, or Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

For Dr. Doom, I think Stephen Moyer would be a great choice.

If I said I didn't want the Human Torch to be black...I'd be accused of being a racist - so what I'll say is...if they're keeping the brother and sister relationship intact - just let Sue also be black as well. Truth be told...I don't hold F4 close to my heart so not bothered what race the characters are, whether or not those two remain siblings or heck, if one was adopted - and that's what it comes down to - in my mind, Parker is straight and James Bond is white. Nothing racist in this -

Nothing racist in this - just, I don't like changing things the way Ive grown up to adore them. Then again, I can see how a racist would think the same way..but honestIm not..Im Asian! :o)

It's really sad when racist people undermine other people's arguments just because they happen to be on the same side on one topic. It's not that I don't want Johnny Storm to be black; it's that I want him to look like in the comics. Not black, no brown hair, no red hair, just a blonde dude like in the comics. I agree with you that the next best thing is to have a black Sue, to at least keep the bond intact.

I'm very down for Allison Williams as Sue Storm. Not only is she beautiful and the right age, but she has proven to be very talented with her performance on HBO's Girls.

I'm also a huge fan of Michael B. Jordan, but I feel like he doesn't really suit the role and that, besides, the role is a bit beneath him at this point now that he's blowing up.

Well....

If the Thing is anything but a full CGI character similar to the Hulk this movie has already failed.

Here comes the downvotes

I'm really pulling for Jordan and Sullivan. Seriously, it's something different and new. If we are going to keep doing the same things over and over with reboots, then what's the point?

New Orleans

This probably isn't what they are doing, but it would be pretty cool if the Fantastic Four became New Orleans based superheroes. It's an awesome and unique city, and would make a pretty cool backdrop to a superhero movie. There's no reason for New York to have a monopoly on these things.

i was hoping for casting news at Comic Con this year but aside for the Avengers announcement, Marvel in general was pretty light on information compared to last few years. I was expecting 1 movie announcement post-Avengers 2, a full cast list for GotG, and for Fox to announce the cast of this movie. That wouldve brought the house down. Anyway, hopefully Marvel can make up a little with D23 and Fox can just announce this bit of news anytime.

Im excited for this reboot, and Josh Trank is one

Cleveland has been a stand-in for NYC in Avengers and Capt. America 2 so why not. Most of the panoramic scenes are CG anyway.
