KIT HARINGTON & SAOIRSE RONAN ARE MR. FANTASTIC & SUE STORM IN 'FANTASTIC FOUR' REBOOT? SPECTACULAR ASIAN EPIC TRAILER FOR 'YOUNG DETECTIVE DEE: RISE OF THE SEA DRAGON'! CW'S NEW 'COLONY' ON MARS SF SHOW

FANTASTIC FOUR REBOOT
 GETS KIT HARINGTON AND SAOIRSE RONAN?
While we wait for the first casting announcements from STAR TREK EPISODE VII (rumour has it a teaser and a casting choice will be revealed before the weekend), here are first casting rumours on FANTASTIC FOUR reboot! 'Variety' reports that GAME OF THRONES' Kit Harington has auditioned for Reed Richards or Mr. Fantastic lead role, along with Jack O'Connell (300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE) and Miles Teller, while Saoirse Ronan has auditioned for the role of Sue Storm along with Kate Mara and Margot Robbie. There were previous rumours on Michael B.Jordan (CHRONICLE) playing Johnny Storm or The Human Torch. The film is scheduled for March 2015 and will feature a much younger cast than the one from the previous film which had Ioan Gruffudd, Chris Evans and Jessica Alba.

CW'S GOES SF AGAIN IN
MARS 'COLONY' TV SHOW
After two new sf shows this season THE TOMORROW PEOPLE and STAR CROSSED, it seems that CW is venturing even further into the science fiction genre. They've just opted for another sf show COLONY which is, according to Deadline, a thriller about a group of explorers sent to colonize Mars, willing to leave their lives behind to brave the dangers of another planet, and the terrifying reality they discover. It is inspired by the story of 'The Lost Colony', the 16th century British settlement on Roanoke Island, off the coast of North Carolina, whose inhabitants vanished without a trace, sparking a slew of theories about their fate. The show will be written by ONCE UPON A TIME's Ian Goldberg.

  1. I don't get the need for all these superhero reboots, especially when there's such a wealth of characters and teams they could be mining for the big screen.
