SDCC 2012: FOX Sets 'Fantastic Four' Reboot & Needs New Director For 'Daredevil'
Reported by Outsiders - 12:36 PM 2012.07.12
Movie news coming out of Comic-Con from 20th Century Fox is that Fox has officially set Chronicle helmer Josh Trank to direct the reboot of Fantastic Four. This version will include a whole new cast and will be slated for production and dated for relase by the studio after The Wolverine sequel starts production shortly.
Fox is also scouting out directors as David Slade has dropped out of Daredevil. The studio has a script it likes, but has to get the ball rolling on production by this fall or risk the property revert to Marvel Studios and Disney. Slade could not make the timing work as he is directing the pilot of the series Hannibal.
