Fans who lost faith in the Fantastic Four film franchise can rejoice. Tim Rothman, the CEO of 20th Century Fox, recently confirmed that Josh Trank, director of the critically-acclaimed found footage superhero flick, Chronicle, has begun work on a Fantastic Four reboot. Not much else is known at this point, but if Trank is involved in the film’s development, things may look up for the franchise.
Even before Chronicle was released back in February, there was talk that Trank was directly involved in the film’s conception. But he denied it, and that, coupled with rumors that he was also set to direct a Venom film, threw the possibility of a new, better Fantastic Four film into uncertainty.
Now, however, the head of 20th Century Fox has said not only is Trank directly involved in the film’s development, but he also might direct it as well.
What do you all think? Should the Fantastic Four return to the big screen or should the studio just let the franchise die?
