Fox Looking To Dump Fantastic Four Director, Screenplay And Recast, Six Months Before They Are Due To Shoot (UPDATE)

trankI’ve learnt from a rather well-connected source that, as the title says,  Fox is looking to dump Fantastic Four director Josh Trank and the script by Simon Kinberg and are actively looking for replacements. Six months before they are due to shoot, for 2015 release.

Oh, yes, and there are now casting issues from the studio too.

No I don’t know any more. Isn’t that enough?

I know. Maybe they could ask their Official Consultant, Mark Millar

UPDATE: Screen Crush cites high level Fox sources denying this story. However we remain confident in our source. Bleeding Cool suggests that if Fox really would like to stomp on the rumour, they stop approaching folk to replace the director.
