Jamie Bell is close to agreeing a role in the forthcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four, according to reports.

Bell, who is currently starring in Lars Von Trier's controversial 'Nymphomaniac' and rose to prominence with his starring role in 2000's Billy Elliot, is set to play Ben Grimm and his alter-ego The Thing in the film.

The Wrap also says that Kate Mara and Miles Teller are close to signing deals to play Sue Storm( the Invisible Woman) and Reed Richards (Mister Fantastic) respectively, while The Wire's Michael B. Jordan has been linked with the role of the Human Torch.

The film will be directed by Chronicle filmmaker Josh Trank. The previous Fantastic Four films, released in 2005 and 2007, saw Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans bring the superhero team to the big screen.
