Fantastic Four Reboot Finds A Writer


Only days after it was announced that Chronicle’s Josh Trank would direct  the Fantastic Four reboot, we find out that 20th Century Fox has found a writer.

Fox has tapped Jeremy Slater to write the reboot. The Hollywood Reporters states that the up-and-coming writer, along with Trank, are indications that Fox is trying to capture the hardcore comic book fans. Both Trank and Slater are of that particular genre. Slater has a horror movie Tape 4 floating around Hollywood, which is centered in the H.P. Lovecraft mythology. It is being worked on by Lionsgate. Slater also wrote My Spy, which is a teen spy comedy.

It’s too early for any sort of casting yet, but there had been a rumor floating around since the reboot was first announced that The Thing would be purely CGI. With all of this recent news, it seems Fox is pushing it to get a Fantastic Four movie off the ground. It is the next big film lined up after The Wolverine.
