Fantastic Four Cast Announcement Approaching

The full cast of anticipated movie THE FANTASTIC FOUR is expected to be announced next week (ends02UL04), with actor MICHAEL CHIKLIS remaining as favourite for the role of THE THING.

The movie, which follows the exploits of mutant astronauts REED RICHARDS, SUSAN STORM RICHARDS, BENJAMIN GRIMM and JOHNNY STORM, better known as MR FANTASTIC, the INVISIBLE WOMAN, THE THING and the HUMAN TORCH - will begin filming in August (04).

Producer AVI ARAD, who will bring the MARVEL COMICS favourites to the big screen, is expected to make the public announcement about the movie, which will be helmed by BARBERSHOP director TIM STORY.

Fantastic Four creator STAN LEE says, "Chiklis is tough and rugged, yet he has a likable quality - and that's The Thing."

MEAN GIRLS star RACHEL McADAMS is emerging as a likely choice to play Sue Storm.

Arad hints, "She's be great. We like her a lot."
