Earlier this week we learned that Chronicle director Josh Trank had been hired to direct the Fantastic Four reboot over at Fox, and now the studio have tapped up-and-coming writer Jeremy Slater to pen the movie. Slater’s only previous big movie is teen spy comedy I Spy and a horror piece called Tape 4, so I have no idea about this guy’s track record.
With the hiring of both Trank and Slater, Fox are obviously very serious about getting this movie done (it’s expected to begin filming next summer, and a release date has been specified but is currently unknown), although we all know they’re only doing this to keep the rights which is pretty sad when you think about it.
