Mark Millar On Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot

Fox's new Creative Consultant, comic book writer Mark Millar addresses the planned reboot of the studio's Fantastic Four property by young filmmaker Josh Trank. Says the film will have 'Ridley Scott moments.'


Josh Trank and Mark Millar have been in regular contact about the Fantastic Four reboot. Here's what Millar shared with SciFiNow on the subject.



“From what I’ve seen and from talking to him – he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well – he’s contemporarising it. I think he’s just making it work for the screen – he’s a great storyteller.

Chronicle, if you think about it, was similar to Fantastic Four in that it was a bunch of people who were transformed into something more than human – that turned out almost his calling card to come and do something like Fantastic Four.

What I wasn’t expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen – I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know? The Ridley Scott moments, and the Fantastic Four really are jaw-dropping in the same way you feel when you saw Alien for the first time. There’s some moments in this – not to be specific – that are actually gonna be phenomenal on screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before.”




I'll admit, there was a time when I was unsure Trank would be directing the film. Following the success of Chronicle, Trank was doing his best Guillermo del Toro impression, signing on to projects at a blistering pace. However, it does indeed appear that things are moving forward for the reboot, which is slated to be released in the crowed film slate of 2015. So according to Millar, we'll have a contemporary, humorous, Ridley Scott Alien-esque, badass Fantastic Four film that will feature stuff never seen before in a comic book movie. Intrigued, yet?
