FANTASTIC FOUREVER: Fox's Movie Reboot Lands Director Of Chronicle

Yes, assembling The Thing brick by brick would be quicker than the time it's taking for Fox's revamp of the Fantastic Four to finally hit theatres, but the news is that Chronicle director Josh Trank will helm the reboot, based off a script by emerging writer Jeremy Slater.

Trank's ability to seemingly capture the birth of super-humans in Chronicle makes him a decent match for the birthplace of the Marvel Universe, and gives me good reason to get in an un-obligatory shot of the Four by the always-awesome Art Adams. 'Nuff said!


  1. well this looks promising. in many ways Chronicle was the best adventure sci-fi movie i've seen this year. this movie is a great example of what can be done when you have a modest budget and a great screen play along with some good acting. besides, you couldn't do much worse then the the FF films.

  2. Hey now. I liked those. In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that you can't have Johnny Storm and Captain America played by the same person in the same Universe I'd be more unhappy about this reboot. But I did like Chronicle, and I'm interested to see what he'd do with a bigger movie. I'll wait and see who's in the cast listing, though, before I get too excited.

  3. I'm with Random, I liked the FF movies too, but I thought they aimed the target audience age a little too low. Otherwise I'd be happy if the cast were all reprised and the storylines were just given more depth. They won't be, but I'm just saying.

    Chronicle was oretty decent Dave, and this just shows you where hardwork can lead.
