Report: Fantastic Four Reboot to Begin Shooting in September

According to a report by The Wrap, the film is expected to go before the cameras later this year in Louisiana. Production had been planned to take place in Vancouver, but Lousiana’s tax benefits have lured Fox to move its shoot.

Louisiana lawmakers recently killed a bill that would have reduced the state’s film production incentive program, keeping its generous transferrable credits in place. That made Fox feel comfortable sending work there, according to an individual with knowledge of the decision-making process.

No casting has been announced, though Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Chronicle) has been rumored to play Johnny “The Human Torch” Storm. Fantastic Four is being directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle), and is scheduled for release in March of 2015.
