Audio transcription

"Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of GRTV News. Today we have a bit of a rumour that's been going around, one that most likely we'll get a proper confirmation of relatively soon if there's any truth to it, because we're hearing more information about the casting for the upcoming Fantastic Four movie and it looks like we could be seeing Pedro Pascal taking over the sort of lead role of Reed Richards or Mr Fantastic. So with that being the case, let's dive on in. Rumour Pascal has been offered the role of Reed Richards in Fantastic Four. It's suggested that the deal to lock Pascal in is close to being complete. With the strike officially over, the machinery in Hollywood is slowly starting to move again. One of the many films that has been in the pipeline for a long time is Marvel's remake of Fantastic Four, a long-awaited project by fans after so many years of the brand being dragged through the mud by the 20th century. Perhaps it's no wonder then that the interest in Marvel's new film is relatively high and several different stars have been rumoured to be linked to the project. These include Adam Driver, Jake Gyllenhaal and Vanessa Kirby and now also The Last of Us and Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal who, according to a report from insider Daniel Richtman, has allegedly been offered one of the film's main roles. Which of course is great if it's true."

"Pascal rarely disappoints and has proven himself to be one of the most capable actors in Hollywood right now. So if it is now his job to take on the lead role of Reed Richards, well then we have a good reason to look forward to the film which is still a few years away. Do you think Pascal would fit the role of Reed Richards and who are you looking forward to Marvel's new Fantastic Four?
And well since Daniel Richtman, who again he puts out a lot of these insider posts relating to sort of not just Marvel but cinema as a whole, Deadline has since also published a follow-up story as well sort of confirming his report as well saying that they have inside reports as well suggesting something similar is happening."

"There has been rumours sort of going around about this Fantastic Four movie for a while now stating that this week we'd hear casting announcements. If it's you know sort of late Wednesday when we're hearing the rumour that Pedro Pascal could be looking to sign on to Reed Richards, maybe it's going to be next week when we hear like the full casting news or something like that. But yes it looks like Pedro Pascal could be the lead man for this film. We're not too sure about the rest of the cast yet, there's a lot of different characters to fill in for this Fantastic Four movie."

"And yeah again we haven't really heard who's going to be playing the Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm, The Thing, all those different characters. So as we know more about that we'll be sure to keep you posted and updated. And likewise as I said earlier you know you can probably expect a confirmation about Pedro Pascal's signing on to this movie relatively soon so keep an eye out for that. But otherwise that's all the time we have on today's episode of GRTV News. We'll be back now tomorrow for the last one of the week believe it or not. So until that hope you enjoy the rest of your Thursday and we'll see you on the next one. Take care everyone."
