Josh Trank officially directing ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot
Reboot of Marvel superhero comic series will have ‘Chronicle’ director helming.
After ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ reboot ended up making a boatload of money at the box-office, studios are now convinced that rebooting a stale franchise is the best way to go in order to not lose the rights to the series. The ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot has been in talks for a long time after the movie franchise went dormant back in 2007, and ‘Chronicle’ director Josh Trank has been rumored for the job for a long time despite his denial. Now at Comic-Con, he’s officially announced for the series.
Deadline reports that Trank is officially taking on the franchise and helming a reboot of the Marvel property for Fox. The director has been on a signing spree in Hollywood right after the success of ‘Chronicle’ and among other things is also set for directing the videogame adaptation of ‘Shadow of the Collosus’. The reboot is said to feature an all new cast and a different take on the property, and will probably be what Trank does next. A script is in development, but that’s all we know concretely about the project.
