When asked about the role, he confirmed that he has been in talks.
However, there may be a scheduling conflict with the Divergent sequel Insurgent, which begins production in April, just a few weeks after Divergent opens on March 21, 2014. When asked about what he will be shooting next, the actor had this to say.
It isn't known when Fantastic Four will begin production, so it isn't known for sure if there will be a scheduling conflict or not, but it seems the actor has a full year ahead of him already. We reported earlier this month that Kit Harington and Jack O'Connell have also tested for the Reed Richards role.
Josh Trank is directing the superhero reboot from a script that has been worked on by Simon Kinberg, Jeremy Slater, Michael Green, Seth Grahame-Smith and T.S. Nowlin.
The Fantastic Four comes to theaters August 7th, 2015 and stars Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Tim Blake Nelson, Reg E. Cathey. The film is directed by Josh Trank.
