‘Fantastic Four’ Film Finds a New Writer

Marvel

The Fantastic Four‘ has had two turns up at box office bat and both of them have been horrible attempts at bringing the famous super group to the big screen. 20th Century Fox has been trying to reboot the series and after getting their director, they’ve now snagged a writer.

Fox recently hired ‘Chronicle’ director Josh Trank to helm the big screen reboot about the family of heroes who were exposed to radiation in outer space and came back with super powers. Now that he’s on board, Fox is finalizing a deal with up-and-coming writer Jeremy Slater.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Slater is a new writer who has the script ‘Tape 4′ set up over at Lionsgate. It’s a horror movie based around the life of H.P. Lovecraft. He also wrote a teen spy comedy called ‘My Spy’ that was at CBS Films but is now over at Universal Pictures with Lorenzo di Bonaventura set to produce.

Fox made two ‘Fantastic Four’ movies in 2005 and 2007, and has to make another one or they lose the rights and the property goes back to Marvel/Disney. Looks like we’ll be seeing more adventures with Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, the Human Torch and the Thing on the big screen sooner rather than later.
