UPDATE: Fox Reportedly Unhappy With Josh Trank's "Mess" Of A FANTASTIC FOUR Movie

We haven't seen so much as a single still from The Fantastic Four, and this might just explain why! Apparently, Fox are demanding expensive reshoots because the reboot (called a "mess") is more like Chronicle 2 than a Fantastic Four movie! Hit the jump for details on that and more...


Bleeding Cool reported last year that 20th Fox were in the process of looking for other writers and directors to tackle The Fantastic Four, but had no luck in finding anyone willing to take over in the midst of production. That rumour was dismissed at the time, and we heard nothing more until some recent rumblings of there maybe being some tension between the studio and Josh Trank. 
 
While Matthew Vaughn was quick to sing the praises of the movie recently, they now claim to have heard that studio bosses are not pleased with how The Fantastic Four has turned out, with it being described by some as "Chronicle 2 rather than Fantastic 4." The site adds that a well-connected senior executive has told them that The Fantastic Four is a "mess" and that there is some major "disquiet" behind the scenes in regards to the current state of the movie. As a result, expensive reshoots are apparently being demanded, with set in Louisiana being rebuilt to accomodate these.
 
If this is true, it could explain why we've seen NOTHING from the movie. Could the release now be delayed? We'll have to wait and see, but share your thoughts on this in the usual place.

UPDATE: Badass Digest claims that they too have heard about reshoots, but add that these have been planned for well over a month now. They say that they've spoken to people who tell them The Fantastic Four is good, and others who say it's a mess, but the reason for reshoots is to add more action scenes as the movie is very character driven. Josh Trank is still said to be in the director's chair as well. Apparently, "This is very much an old school origin story - they aren't really "The Fantastic Four" until the very end of the movie - and I wonder if that has left Fox confused with what to show and how to show it." The plot thickens! Stay tuned to CBM for further updates.
