Josh Trank’s sophomore entry into the directorial arena is currently set to be a remake of the Fantastic Four. Currently, things have been pretty quite about the franchise reboot. However, today Fox franchise writer Simon Kinberg has been brought on to do a ‘substantial overhaul’ on the film.
Kinberg wrote X3 and co-wrote X-men: Days of Future Past for Fox. He’s also a producer on Star Wars Episode VII and writing an as yet untitled Star Wars spin off film.
Little else is known about the reboot rewrite at this time.
