Fantastic Four: Miles Teller Says Decision Should Be Made Soon

Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic

Miles Teller, long rumored to be the frontrunner to play Reed Richards in The Fantastic Four, says that an announcement on the film should be coming soon.

That's according to pop culture website Punch Drunk Critics, who spoke with him briefly and who took his remarks to mean he was a virtual lock for the film and that the announcement will be his casting.

This week, The Spectacular Now star Teller is appearing at the Sundance Film Festival in support of his new film Whiplash, which was just picked up for distribution by Sony. It's there that he remarked, "Yeah, that should be coming up in the next few weeks" when asked whether fans will see him starring in director Josh Trank's film adaptation of Marvel Comics's First Family.
