[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6984:]]Fox Studios and Josh Trank are moving the new Fantastic Four reboot from a Vancouver shooting location to Louisiana with production slated for September.

TheWrap reports that Marvel's first family is moving to Louisiana after the state legislature killed off a proposal that would have did away with tax incentives for filming.

No confirmed details on the Fantastic Four reboot are known, but it's been described as "taking a grounded superhero and sci-fi approach to the heroes and will tap deep into the comics mythology."

There is also the rumor that stated Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch may be an African-American, played by Michael B. Jordan, who worked under Trank in Chronicle.

With production slated to being in a couple months we can expect casting announcements soon.

The Fantastic Four reboot hits March 6, 2015.
