Well folks – Fantastic Four is now set to join the reboot gang.
The two previous films were complete failures to fans and critics, so the studio is reportedly looking to completely overhaul the franchise. No Tim Story!
Fantastic Four (2005) landed over $330 million worldwide while Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) took in $290 million. Both were commercial successes but the reviews were horrid and the films were just turds. The producers are looking to take the franchise away from the “bubble gum” style of the previous versions and use the darker and edgier Iron Man template which made box office bank and was a success with fans and critics.
Now begins the task of finding the right director and cast to make this work…better yet, a good script.
