There’s a new trailer out for Fantastic Four that features a bit of new footage about the emotional side of the film’s story. What’s even more interesting is the story brewing behind the scenes. The film has been troubled for quite some time and recently, a rumor popped up that Matthew Vaughn was hired to do the re-shoots, not Josh Trank. This would be a big blow to his career as he also recently lost his gig directing one of the Star Wars anthology films.
As fan sites started reporting the rumors, Trank is now responding to them directly via Twitter with statements like:
” While MV has been very supportive, he’s never been to our set. There’s only been 1 director of FF2015. Me.”
“Definitely not true. I haven’t even met MV in person, and there were no such test screenings.”
“Next time you read an article, whether it’s Hollywood Reporter or SuperheroNews, if they aren’t naming sources: it’s probably bullshit.”
FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
