FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot To Be Developed By Josh Trank Who May Or May Not Direct

Fox CEO Tom Rothman provides updates on X-Men and Fanstastic Four movies, says Josh Trank could still direct FF4 and is currently working on the film's development.






Many assumed that Josh Trank (27) would follow up his break-out hit film, Chronicle with a major studio blockbuster. His name was mentioned for both Venom and Fantastic Four before the young filmmaker chose to adapt Red Star, the graphic novel by Christian Gossett. Apparently, that won't keep Trank off a Fantastic Four reboot says Fox chief Tom Rothman.

"I'm hopeful," said Rothman. "I think Josh is going to come onto 'Fantastic Four' and develop that." Speaking to Collider, Rothman states that Trank is actually developing the movie NOW and may or may not direct.

As for the X-Men:First Class sequel. Rothman stated, "We're going to start shooting January 2013 for [a release date of] either Christmas 2013, or Summer 201. The script is in development now. Matt, Simon Kinberg and Jane Goldman are working on it now."
