Toby Kebbell - Toby Kebbell to play Fantastic Four villain?

Toby Kebbell is in talks to play the villain in the 'Fantastic Four' reboot.

The 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' actor is negotiating the role of Doctor Doom, which American Hustle's Jack Huston and 'Anna Karenina' star Domhnall Gleeson were also being considered for, reports Variety.com.

He will join Jamie Bell - who recently starred in Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' alongside Shia LaBeouf and Uma Thurman - who will take on the role of Ben Grimm, aka 'The Thing'.

The 'Billy Elliot' star will be joined by 'Footloose' actor Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, 'House of Cards' actress Kate Mara as the Invisible Girl and Michael B. Jordan - who played Vince Howard in 'Friday Night Lights' - as the Human Torch.

Josh Trank will direct the superhero film which will see the four characters during their younger years, with Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn and Gregory Goodman producing.

The reboot will serve as a prequel to 2005 and 2007 films 'Fantastic Four' and 'Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer', which starred Ioan Gruffudd as Mr. Fantastic, Jessica Alba as Invisible Girl, Chris Evans as the Human Torch and Michael Chiklis as The Thing.

The film is slated for a June 19, 2015, release.
