A rumor began to circulate two weeks ago that Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan was being eyed for the role of Johnny Storm, AKA The Human Torch, in Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The internet almost caught on fire, and the man himself won't say whether there is truth to it this nugget of information or not.

"That's not real yet," Jordan said in an interview with The Huffington Post.

"Everyone knows we're good friends. It's something that if it happened I would be ecstatic," Jordan also told USA Today "giving a big wink." "I'd love to be a part of it."

Jordan's enthusiasm to challenge conventional norms appears to be another indicator that he's up for the role.

"Things change and time goes on, it's 2013 right now," he said. "The characteristics of the Human Torch are his name is Johnny Storm, he's charismatic, and he's a playboy. That's it. You know what I'm saying? That's all there is."

Details are currently few on the project all around outside of Trank directing from script by Seth Grahame-Smith, Michael Green and Jeremy Slater. Another casting rumor for the film includes "Girls" star Allison Williams in an unspecified role that many believe to be Sue Storm, AKA The Invisible Woman. Production is slated to begin soon, however, with the film targeting a March 6, 2015 release.
