Williams, the daughter of NBC newscaster Brian Williams, was just cast as the title character in "Rosaline," a take on the classic "Romeo and Juliet" tale. The story centers on the niece of a Capulet who catches Romeo's eye, only to be replaced by Juliet.
But the bigger news is that according to Deadline, Williams is up for a part in the soon-to-be-rebooted "Fantastic Four," presumably playing the role of Sue Storm. While Deadline says the deal is "in the very early talking stage," it would be a big coup for Williams, who until now was known only for her famous father and her HBO gig.
The "Fantastic" reboot is being prepped for a 2015 release, with "Chronicle" director Josh Trank on board to direct. Newbie scribe Jeremy Slater has already finished a draft, and Seth Grahame-Smith ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter") has signed on to do rewrites.
