While casting negotiations have yet to begin, THE SHIELD star MICHAEL CHIKLIS is being eyed to take on the role of the Thing.

Story tells Hollywood trade publication DAILY VARIETY of the movie, "What attracted me was that they are a family. They night want to wring each others necks. They might storm out and disappear for three days, but you also know they'll be back. They don't always get along."
