Fantastic Four Reboot Casting Call Hints At Different Origins

A casting call website may have inadvertently released the origin details for the Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four reboot.

Acting-Audtions.org has a listing for Fantastic Four in regards to starring, co-starring and supporting roles for the movie.

Check out the following description, which is a bit different than its comic book counterpart, but perhaps more inline with the Ultimate Marvel Comics Fantastic Four version as we see the government is involved:

“The Fantastic Four” will tell the tale of two very young friends, Reed Richards and Ben Grimm. After an event transforms the boys, they find themselves empowered with bizarre new abilities. Reed becomes a scientific genius who can stretch, twist and re-shape his body to inhuman proportions. Ben becomes a monstrous, craggy humanoid with orange, rock-like skin and super-strength. However, the two end up being owned by the government and used as weapons. But after they mature, two others with powers come into the picture – Sue Storm “The Invisable Girl” and Johnny Storm “The Human Torch”.

It's also stated that Michael B. Jordan has been cast as Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch, which hasn't been officially announced by Fox Studios as of yet.

Recently it also became known that Simon Kinberg has finished the script with actors up for the roles of Reed Richards and Sue Storm.

Update: Director Josh Trank says the synopsis is not true.

Fantastic Four has a June 19, 2015 release.
