According to reports, Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence is headed to Australia to begin filming the latest Fantastic Four reboot.
The news comes courtesy of The Daily Telegraph, who says that: “Marvel is set to relocate to film some of its blockbuster movies out of Sydney for the ‘foreseeable future’, sources reveal, with stars like Jennifer Lawrence heading Down Under.”
While Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t been officially confirmed as starring in the latest Fantastic Four reboot, it is rumoured that the Academy Award-winning actor is in talks to feature in the movie.
It might be strange to see Lawrence play the role of a different Marvel character in the MCU, after playing the role of Mystique/Raven in the X-Men movies from 20th Century Fox.
However since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, movies such as Fantastic Four and perhaps even X-Men could receive a fresh clean slate.
According to reports, The Hunger Games actor is expected to play the role of Susan Storm a.k.a “The Invisible Woman”.
Responding to the news, Deadline reporter Justin Knoll questioned the validity of the rumour, taking to Twitter to say the movie is still too early in development for casting to be confirmed.
“All I’m gonna say is this, Marvel just started meeting with writers on FANTASTIC FOUR, there is no script and it will be awhile before this film starts shooting,” he tweeted.
For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Not only is the latest Fantastic Four reboot expected to begin shooting in sunny Australia, but it will also be joining the likes of Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder which stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Matt Damon and Chris Pratt.
Australia is not only the go-to filming location for Hollywood blockbusters, because the likes of the Borderlands movie, the Jack Ryan TV series and an alleged secret Marvel project are being produced in the Central European country of Hungary.
