Director Tim Story has posted an update on his MySpace page in regards to the Fantasticar to be used in the next Fantastic Four movie.  Let’s hope the car rocks, and doesn’t suck like some of the more recent visions.

Al’ight. I’m in town for a couple of meetings (Translation: I’m over budget and something’s gotta go…don’t worry. We’ve got enough.) so they set it up for me to go visit the Fantasticar while it’s being assembled (sp?). This car is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Not saying this because it’s in my movie. (But there is obviously a bias) But it’s cool. I mean this is like “the car from The Spy Who Loved Me” type of cool. You guys remember the one, white and went under water. (I might be saying the wrong movie, so forgive me, too excited) Anyway, the company, I’m dealing with built all the cool vehicles in a lot of big movies. Including a few batmobiles, and planet rovers from few space movies, blah blah blah, and the excitment from them is ridiculous. I mean, these guys build jets for the airforce.

I went to their top secret local way out in the middle of nowhere and when I walked in, I just couldn’t believe my eyes. It’s better than I imagined. Can’t wait to shoot this thing. It doesn’t get to us until late September but I can’t wait to put our Fan4 inside. We (my production designer Kirk P.) also saw the models for the individual pods – once the Fantasticar spilts up. They are on schedule and preparing all the gadgets and circuit boards, blah blah blah.

I needed this visit. A little shot in the arm.

Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer will be in theatres June 15, 2007.
