The director of Chronicle and Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot will helm one of Lucasfilm’s standalone Star Wars films.
Simon Kinberg says director Josh Trank’s franchise reboot is “grounded, real, gritty, and what it would really be like if you went through a transformation and lost control of your body.”
Writer Simon Kinberg expects the film’s tone of the Fox reboot to fall “somewhere on the spectrum between Spider-Man and Chronicle.”
Acknowledging she doesn’t know much about the film or the source material, the Sue Storm actress says, “I think we’re making a very grounded version of a superhero film.”
Sam Riley, Eddie Redmayne, Toby Kebbell and Domhnall Gleeson are said to be contenders for the role of the Fantastic Four villain.
The Chronicle star won’t confirm he’ll star in the Fox reboot, but he has something to say about an African-American actor playing the Human Torch.
As screen tests begin for director Josh Trank’s film, a contender emerges for the role of Ben Grimm: Cemetery Junction star Christian Cooke.
Both Book of Mormon star Josh Gad and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank have shot down the latest rumor surrounding Marvel’s First Family.
The filmmaker says the plot synopsis released last week isn’t “anything close” to the actual plot of his Fantastic Four reboot.
If a casting call is to be believed, Marvel’s first family will depart significantly from the comic books in Fox’s franchise reboot.
