OMG, it gets worse, here's the plot synopsis according to Aint It Cool:

“The Fantastic Four’ will tell the story 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 Invisible Girl” and Johnny Storm “The Human Torch.”

Here's the link for the article:

Seriously, Fox should stop right now. And to think people were going nuts over Michael Douglas being cast as Hank Pym.
All I can say is that I hope that report is total BS.

I thought they were going for an Ultimate FF take on the property?

Of course he also said back in august that Miles wasn't in contention for a role when he clearly has been this whole time so take that as you will.

Ok, I may not know alot about the FF but I know enough to react to that synopsis in this manner.

Glad to here it's not true.

Glad that synopsis was released (fake or otherwise), as it should remind people of what makes the FF the FF (ie. not the color of Johnny's skin).

I don't have a problem with the ethnicity of any of the characters being changed. My problem is with a young Reed and Ben.

So, not true, but I can easily see someone making this type of conclusion after hearing a brief synopsis of the Ultimate FF.

Remember, Mark Millar is the advisor for Fox on their Marvel films, and he launched the Ultimate FF with Bendis. And I can see Millar being egomaniacal enough to tell Marvel that his version is the best, and therefore they all should be teenagers.
