The Oscar-winning Pianist star and Irish Tudors hunk are both in the running to play Mr Fantastic Reed Richards, Fox insiders have apparently told movie blog Screenrant.com.

The film is due out in Summer 2012 and Sex And The City 2's Alice Eve and Pineapple Express's Amber Heard have been linked to the role of Sue Storm.
Sources at the Fox SFX department have revealed The Thing will be entirely CGI in the new film.
The first two Fantastic Four films saw Ioan Gruffudd play Mr Fantastic, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm, Chris Evans as the Human Torch and Michael Chiklis as The Thing.
