MOVIES: Fantastic Four getting the reboot – Chronicle director at the wheel


If Fox, Sony, and other studios want to maintain the rights to Marvel properties, they need to make sure they are constantly working on a new movie.  Fox is ready to bring the Fantastic Four back to the big screen, and it looks like the studio has found a director to do it.

According to an interview with Collider, Fox CEO Tom Rothman said Chronicle director Josh Trank is the one for the job.

Josh Trank who did Chronicle, I think this has been reported, is gonna come on and work on a take, or a vision, that he has for it, so we’re very excited about that.

I did like Chronicle for what it was, and the special effects were done with a modest budget.  If Trank can deal with older actors in the movie, then we may have a reboot that works.
