It looks like the producers of The Fantastic Four reboot are intent on rounding up as many former stars of HBO series The Wire as physically possible, with Reg E. Cathey the latest to sign up for the project.
Cathey has been attached to play the role of Dr. Storm, who is the father of Fantastic Four members Johnny and Sue Storm, better known asHuman Torch and Invisible Woman.
The movie is set for release in June of next year, and although plot details have yet to find their way into the hands of the media, it is said that shooting has already kicked off in Louisiana.
Cathey is the latest star to sign up for the project, and he'll be joining Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell and Miles Teller in the remake of the less than well received duo of flicks from the 00s. A sequel is already planned for 2017.
