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.

There are a number of promising young actors raising their profiles at the moment, but one of the most exciting of the bunch is Michael B. Jordan.  You may remember him breaking your heart during Season One of The Wire or making you swoon with his recurring appearance on NBC’s Parenthood, but he broke out in a big way with last year’s gut-wrenching drama Fruitvale Station, garnering him dramatic clout and even aw ...

Mike Epps Takes the Lead in Richard Pryor Biopic

Aug 26 2014 11:30am CDT | Source: Slash Film

Looks like the lead in the Richard Pryor biopic has gone to Mike Epps. Somehow, early on in the process, it looked like Nick Cannon was going to get the gig, and thus be enshrined in proximity to Pryor’s simply by virtue of proximity. But then Mike Epps came roaring up from the back of the pack with a screen test that was reportedly impossible to ignore. (He’d been attached to play Pryor in a previous version of this project.) So now we’v ...
