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.

    The two latest movies had something to them. They were not good movies, no sir. But I think that perhaps they were just too silver age´ish a couple of years to early? Im looking forward to a new movie. As long at they don’t make the opposed mistake and make it a dark movie. witch is a couple of years to late :) As I have already said. Rise of the Dark Knight will be the last successful Dark Comicbook movie for some time.

      Hey! Fantastic was Christopher Eccleston’s word. Maybe if his name was Mister Brilliant, then David Tennant would fit.

    I hope this comes with a story like the coming of Galactus, Molecule Man, or Submariner
