HomeNewsMatthew Vaughn to produce the FANTASTIC FOUR reboot Darryn Bonthuys February 25, 2013 News Comic book movies are a fickle mistress. One moment you’re in, the next moment some hack has taken over the directing responsibilities on your third X-Men film. Matthew “Kick-Ass” Vaughn certainly knows that feeling, as he stepped away from X-Men: Days of Future Past last year. But while he may not be directing, he isn’t straying too far awat from the movie scene, as he’ll be helping to produce the cosmic-ray bombarded reboot for the Fantastic Four. The news comes straight from Marvel Movies consultant Mark Millar. Alliteration! Via Twitter: Just off the phone with Fox and some excellent news – Matthew Vaughn is producing Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot! — Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) February 22, 2013 Josh “Chronicle” Trank is still on board to direct, and between Millar and Vaughn taking on the responsibility of keeping the first Marvel family on track, we could be in for a movie that is better than the two average Tim Story directed features which starred Ioan Gruffud, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Captain America Chris Evans. 2015 is the scheduled date for the reboot, and with Vaughn on board, hopefully things will begin to pick up some steam as development chunders on. Share and Enjoy: Deon Steyn Right so that we can again see exactly how they got their powers because we forgot how it happened a couple off years ago. I swear if the reboot Spiderman one more time and we have to see him get bitten again….. Sir Captain Rincethis In following with this current generation’s themes, the movie will probably be ‘dark’ and more ‘edgy’ than a building made of rubix cubes http://twitter.com/blahsum James Francis Yeah, I hope they don’t go through all of that again. I can also do without all the ‘internal team conflict’ nonsense. Just give them a big bad guy and let the ass-kicking begin. Sir Captain Rincethis Did you think the first two movies were terrible? I must say I didn’t… Major Commodore 64 Darryn B Underwhelming to be exact. Although I did dig Julian McMahon as Doctor Doom. Deon Steyn We didn’t even get a proper Galactus fight. Sir Captain Rincethis Agreed. I’m just not sure that a re-launch is necessary. I think time would be better spent on an original IP, or on something like Spawn, which died, in flames (but I liked, in a sort of camp way…) Admiral Chief Erwin Captain Torch?
