Trank In Line For The Four Redux

January 14, 2012

Chronicle” director Josh Trank is the frontrunner to direct a reboot of the Fantastic Four film series for Fox reports Variety.

Michael Green (“Green Lantern“) is penning the newest draft about the four individuals who gained superpowers after exposure to cosmic rays during a scientific mission to outer space.

The first Fantastic Four in 2005 and its sequel 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer in 2007–both helmed by Tim Story–grossed $620 million despite awful reviews (I liked em both!). Fox wants to start over to restore some credibility and quality to the property, the way they did with last year’s “X-Men: First Class“.

The studio is waiting to see the box-office revenue of “Chronicle” when it hits theaters on February 3rd before making an official offer to Trank but he has already taken several meetings about the reboot.

Akiva Goldsman was on board to produce but that is no longer the case.
