While 20th Century Fox isnít banging the gong at Comic-Con this year, the studio has big developments on several geek-worthy projects.

* Fox has officially set Chronicle helmer Josh Trank to direct the reboot of Fantastic Four, and the film will be the next Marvel property to be slated for production and dated for release by the studio. Fantastic Four, which will include a new cast, falls into line after The Wolverine sequel that starts production shortly, and the Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class, which is also on a fast track. After Trankís breakthrough with the Fox sleeper hit Chronicle he has been offered everything and attached himself to several projects. But Iím told that Fox expects Fantastic Four to be the next film he directs.



Fox is looking for a director on its other major Marvel reboot, after David Slade just dropped out of Daredevil. The studio has a script it likes, but has to get the film into production by fall or contractually risk having the the property revert to Marvel Studios and Disney. Slade could not make the timing work as he is directing the pilot of the series Hannibal.

F4 was ok, but DD was one of the worst movies ever made.

Fantastic 4 was a giant pile of crap. I've said it before, and I'll say it again... if a piece of crap dropped a piece of crap, and that piece of crap dropped a piece of crap, that would be Fantastic Four. That's Crap<sup>3</sup>.

I won't be seeing these in theaters, that's for sure. Has FOX ever made a good superhero flick? Kind of fucked up of me to say, but I want FOX to crash and burn on these bad boys. Give the rights back to Marvel and let someone do it right.

I have still never seen it, but some say the directors cut makes daredevil good. I just can't see how a little bit of extra footage turns a crap movie to good?

it's pathetic

they can't think of anything else to make movies about so they are just 'rebooting' everything.

Hollywood has run out of ideas. They made all old TV shows into movies a few years ago, now it's all super heros and reboots.

I would rather have them start trying to make them into movies instead.

It is one thing to reboot something that happened 20 years ago, but they are jumping on these so fast that it is unbearable. I grew up with spiderman as one of my fav's, but I didn't even have the thought of seeing this reboot in the theater.

It's "smart" fiscally for these studios to do reboots in a rough economy, mainly because these franchises are proven commodities with fanbases already in place.

I for one don't agree with the practice, but I'm not the one in charge.

Would love to see some alt history books out there get made into a movie or movie series. But Hollywood will chose another Adam Sandler movie (even though every one of his movies is just a repackaging of his previous movies) to cram down our throats.

Every Mel Gibson historical movie is alt history.

I'm excited about rebooting Daredevil. I like the character so much I kinda like the terrible firrst movie. Done well (believe it when I see it) Daredevil could be a fucking fantastic franchise.

Oh and BTW, this is another case of FOX just making these so they don't lose the rights back to Marvel. I wouldn't get my hopes up, but ya never know?

I would love to see a truly good film version of Terry Goodkind's "Wizard's First Rule". The TV series was enjoyable enough for a low-budget Aussie/Kiwi production (in the manner of "Hercules" and "Xena") but a full-fledged big-budget film would do it more justice.

I'd also like to see a film version of Anne McCaffrey's world of Pern, as I think the CGI can now do justice to all the dragons required for such a film.

I think it's time they reboot Avengers.

They did that with John Carter and it fell on it's face, even though it really was a decent movie. Now they're going to probably going to be even more cautious.

John Carter was a bust because of terrible marketing.

They should make a Steven Hawking superhero movie with him just mowing people down with his wheel chair and punking them in math and shit.

Totally agree... but that's part of it. They still have to market things like Spiderman obviously but it's got a built in fan base. They needed to really sell people on why John Carter was the forebearer to a lot of modern science fiction and they didn't do it.

I guess Magic Mike did well. So not all hope is lost for original cinema!

That was just a Showgirls reboot

Oh, come on. Don't sell them short. They each had a sequel, so it was really four shitty movies.

The best - in fact, only good - thing about Daredevil was Michael Clark Duncan as Kingpin. Other than his perfect casting, every aspect of that movie was crap. If nothing else, I will never figure out why they cast dark and tortured Daredevil as Ben Affleck, who is perhaps the least dark and tortured actor in Hollywood.

Fantastic Four likewise had one good casting - Chris Evans - and the rest of everything about it was awful. (Not as awful as Daredevil, but awful.) I actually liked the sequel better, solely because of Doug Jones and Laurence Fishburne as the Silver Surfer, but it was pretty bad too. Both movies completely took a dirty shit on Dr. Doom, who is one of the deepest and most iconic characters in comic book history, if not in literary history in general.

Fantastic Four is a stronger story with more potential than Daredevil, but I have no problem with either and both being remade. They can't do much worse.

I don't think that is the reason.

If they do not make the movies they lose the rights to them and they go back to the comic companies.

With those movies flopping so hard, they have no choice but to reboot, they cannot keep the story going as no one would see ff3 or dd2.

Aries Walker

I think it's both - they're a proven fiscal commodity (Marvel properties are gold right now), and it keeps them from losing the rights.

The doing it for the Avengers storyline that eventually gets to Thanos and (maybe) The Secret Wars.

And for the love of all things holy in comics, they should reboot the FF for no other reason than to do The Silver Surfer and Galctus stories properly. They royally fucked up both of those characters in that abortion of a movie.

I was thinking Civil War. People were starting to rant against superheroes at the end of Avengers.

Possibly. But that teaser shot of Thanos at the end of Avengers makes me think they're taking the story to galactic heights, and rebooting DD and FF would seem to fit the theory (and the need of those characters in such a story). But who knows.
