Hi, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab...
That’s what this scooper says:
Due to friends working at Fox i'm able to visit the studio on occasion... and a few days ago I happened to spy Jason "Lucious Malfoy" Isaacs sitting on a golf cart outside Ralph Winter's office waiting for a meeting. Ralph's Exec. Producer on Fantastic Four, of course, and i'm told there's a sign on his door as we speak saying they're casting for the project.
I dunno, Jason Issacs as Doctor Doom? I can't think of any other major player he'd be up for that fits.
For all of you who are already writing off FANTASTIC FOUR, I’d urge you to wait. I know that Marvel takes this particular film very seriously, and it sounds like they’re working overtime to fine-tune their take on it before it goes into production. The script reviews out there right now are for drafts that have already come and gone, and there are major elements that continue to change. The first real indication we’ll have of what to expect will come from the casting, and if Isaacs is the guy they tap to play Dr. Doom, then personally I’d feel like they were at least on the right track. I’m sure we’ll hear more in the weeks ahead as the production heats up...
