Fantastic Four to get reboot at Fox
Variety reports that Fox is rebooting the “Fantastic Four” film franchise. Whether or not this will mean recasting is up in the air, but signs point to probably.
Akiva Goldsman will oversee the reboot as producer. I still hold him partially responsible for “Batman and Robin,” but maybe that’s not fair. Michael Green, (“Heroes” and the upcoming “Green Lantern” script) will write the script for the new “Fantastic Four” film.
The first thing this brings to mind for me is, is this Fox making sure they have the characters in development so they don’t revert back to Marvel, now with the power of Disney behind them? Maybe.
According to Variety, Fox controls “Fantastic Four” in perpetuity — as long as it continues making the films. This is the same deal Fox has on “X-Men,” “Daredevil” and “Silver Surfer.” So, I’d expect to hear an announcement on “Daredevil” someday soon as well.
