"Daredevil" Loses Director, "Fantastic Four" Hires Director

"Daredevil" Loses Director, "Fantastic Four" Hires DirectorSubmit Comment
20th Century Fox doesn't have much of a presence at this year's Comic-Con, but the studio has now announced that it's next greenlit comic book film will be the reboot of "Fantastic Four," confirming that "Chronicle" helmer Josh Trank is on board to direct.

"Fantastic Four" will begin shooting after "Wolverine 2" and the sequel to "X-Men: First Class." It will also be Trank's next project. The studio has already stated that none of the original cast members will return.

Meanwhile, despite talking about rebooting "Daredevil" for many months, director David Slade (30 Days of Night) has now dropped out. Fox has a script that it likes and will attempt to get the film into production this fall or risk having the property revert back to Marvel. Slade dropped out due to a scheduling conflict with the upcoming "Hannibal" series.

Chronicle was a great movie.

It wasn't about saving the world, it was about three teenagers doing wild things and trying to cope with the new found power.

I am a teenger and that movie was funny, amazing and had connection since it was a teeneger movie.

And about Daredevil? Fox should forget about that reboot and give it to Marvel.

Marvel would do a brillaint job.

I hope it goes back to marvel. I think they should get back all their characters, so we can see an invasion or civil wars movie.

Yeah, I think Marvel should get all their characters.

I think it would be awesome for Fantastic Four, Spiderman and Wolverine to join The Avengers.

Be honest folks. If YOU owned the property rights to a Marvel character, and you're seeing Marvel make BILLIONS of $'s with the characters they have... would you 'give' up your rights to return them to Marvel because 'it's the right thing to do'?! Puhhhleaasseee! The prices these property holders would be asking now for said rights would be off the charts. Now... if they're (Marvel) has expiration dates on those characters, they'll get them back in time.

Meanwhile... DC sits on the collective ass hoping for a miracle in one movie: The Man of Steel. Way to go DC.

It's FOX. They f*ck up pretty much everything. I have no faith in either film, thus, and I hope to never see either property on the big screen until Marvel has TAKEN the rights back and given them to a studio with the capabilities to do either property the justice it warrants.

f*ck, when people don't know what they are talking about. "I WANT WOLVERINE,FANTASTIC FOUR,DAREDEVIL,SPIDERMAN,PUNISHER IN THE AVENGERS..." Some of them are only in The New Avengers, but f*ck, THEY CAN'T f*ckING BE IN THE AVENGERS FILM. It's too much not according to the comics, and fans would lose their f*cking mind if they see Marvel completely ignored the Comic Book events, which most likely, won't happen. f*ck!

None of the cast returns? Well damn, I thought the casting for the movie was actually pretty solid, just the script, and to a lesser extent, Alba's acting, was flimsy.

I'd like to see who they'd cast for Mr. Fantastic, considering Ioan Gruffud was perfect.

I liked Chronicle. Hope he pulls this off looking at the clusterf*ck of cheesiness the last 2 films were.
