Simon Kinberg to write Fantastic Four script

Oct 2 2013, 4:30am CDT | by Bang Movies

Simon Kinberg is to write 'The Fantastic Four' script.

The 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' scribe has signed up to pen the 20th Century Fox reboot and has also joined the project as a producer alongside Matthew Vaughn, who he is working with on the upcoming 'X-Men' movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources said Simon is planning to overhaul 'The Fantastic Four' script substantially and he is no stranger to working with Marvel Comics characters after previously co-writing the script for 2006's 'X-Men: Last Stand' and co-producing 'X-Men: First Class' in 2011.

Josh Trank is set to direct 'The Fantastic Four' and Michael B. Jordan - who he worked alongside on 2012 sci-fi movie 'Chronicle' - is also being eyed up for the lead role of the 'Human Torch' in the film after he reportedly had ''multiple meetings at Fox'' recently.

'Kick-Ass' co-creator Mark Millar will work as creative consultant for Fox on the forthcoming film, and he has promised fans the upcoming movie will be a fresh, modern take on the superhero genre.

He recently said: ''From what I've seen and from talking to [Trank] - he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well - he's contemporarising it. I think he's just making it work for the screen - he's a great storyteller.

''What I wasn't expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen - I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know?''

'The Fantastic Four' is currently set to shoot this fall and has a March 2015 release date.

No "Fantastic Four" Presence At Comic Con

Jul 23 2014 10:54am CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

There's no official announcement, and some comments from actor Michael B. Jordan indicated it was unlikely. Now, producer Simon Kinberg has one and for all put to bed the speculation about Josh Trank's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot appearing at the San Diego Comic Con this week. Kinberg tells Latino Review that the reason for the absence is purely one of practicality - they're st ...

‘Fantastic Four’: Michael B. Jordan Talks Filming & Family Themes

Jul 18 2014 2:17pm CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Josh Trank’s upcoming comic book movie reboot The Fantastic Four has caused a frankly impressive amount of hubbub already, considering we haven’t yet seen so much as an official set photo. From the backlash over casting choices like Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell to rumors that Dr. Doom was going to be played by a woman (he’s not), this is one movie that just doesn’t seem capable of doing anything right in the eyes of some Marvel fans. Admitted ...

Michael B. Jordan Says THE FANTASTIC FOUR Script Is “Evolving” on Set; Doesn’t See the Characters as “Superheroes”

Jul 18 2014 1:11pm CDT | Source: Collider

Though 20th Century Fox hasn’t officially revealed everything it will be bringing to Comic-Con next weekend for its big Hall H panel, most are expecting to see at least something from The Fantastic Four.  The comics adaptation is currently in production in Louisiana in anticipation of a June 19, 2015 release date, so this year’s Comic-Con is the film’s big chance to reach the fans in a massive way.  We still ...

Little has been said about Fox's upcoming The Fantastic Four since production began in New Orleans, though it's possible we might see something out of them at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

Michael B. Jordan On "Fantastic Four" Secrecy

Jul 18 2014 11:26am CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

Michael B. Jordan's casting as Johnny Storm in the "Fantastic Four" reboot brought with it plenty of reaction, far more than any of his co-stars, and surprisingly not a lot was gushing despite the young actor's impressive pedigree. Subsequently the upset over his casting has died down as concern has grown instead over the project as a whole and how director Josh Trank's vision seems to be taking a la ...

Michael B. Jordan Says ‘Fantastic Four’ Is Changing On The Fly

Jul 18 2014 11:16am CDT | Source: Slash Film

Director Josh Trank and the Fantastic Four have been quietly filming their big Marvel movie in Louisiana for the past few months. I say “quietly” for two reasons. One, we haven’t seen a lot of set photos of the stars in costume or anything. And two, co-star Michael B. Jordan agrees. In a new interview with MTV, the actor talked about filming the movie as being in “our own world.” He also talked about how Trank is changing the movie on the fly and that it’s less about ...

‘Fantastic Four’ Clarification: Not Based on One Specific Comic Story

Jul 16 2014 9:00pm CDT | Source: screen rant

Although Fox has been planning the upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four since 2009, the new franchise didn’t start gaining traction until Josh Trank (Chronicle) was hired to direct in 2012. Aside from the discussion of whether it’s too soon to reboot the characters, The Fantastic Four production has been rife with controversies. Between the casting choices (specifically Michael B. Jordan as the Hu ...

Does It Matter That The Fantastic Four Movie Isn't Based on the Comic Books?

Jul 16 2014 3:01pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Twentieth Century Fox released two Fantastic Four movies to very little fanfare in the 2000s. While both films made the movie studio a substantial amount of box office money, they were also pretty bad movies, as the film franchise took a hiatus in 2007. Fox decided to reboot the film series with a new movie in 2015. The possibility that Fantastic Four might crossover with the X-Men in a shared cinematic universe would lead the movie studio to endless options to maximiz ...
