‘Chronicle’ director in line for ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot

Josh Trank's involvement in superhero blockbuster confirmed by 20th Century Fox

Chronicle director Josh Trank involvement in the Fantastic Four reboot has been confirmed by the 20th Century Fox CEO.

Tom Rothman told Collider that, although Trank is involved, he could not say whether he would be directing the new film or not.

He said: “Josh Trank who did Chronicle, I think this has been reported, is gonna come on and work on a take, or a vision, that he has for it, so we’re very excited about that. I think there’s a possibility of [him directing]. I mean he’s gonna develop it now, and then it depends on the script.”

Trank, who impressed audiences with his found-footage superhero movie, has recently been linked with directing Spiderman spin-off Venom. It is unclear at the moment whether his involvement in the Fantastic Four reboot would scupper any plans to direct Spidey’s deadliest villain’s own big screen outing.
