Trivia (6)

Son of Academy Award-winning documentary maker Richard Trank.
Step-son of Judy Toll. Trank credits her with helping gain confidence during his formative years as a teenager stemming from when she encouraged him to sing a karaoke duet with her as Ella Fitzgerald in the style of Louis Armstrong; "by the end of high school, I had developed so much confidence through having this amazing, wonderful person in our life. I dropped 180lbs, I became so motivated to better myself and not be this self-hating shy kid.".
Disapproved of his movie Fantastic Four (2015), because he had no Final Cut. By the end of 2014, Trank had a finished version of the film, which was disapproved of by the producers. Reshoots were ordered and done in early 2015.
He was the youngest director ever to have a film (Chronicle (2012)) reach number one in the UK box office.
Trank is good friends with Simon Kinberg.
Married to Krystin Ver Linden since 2013.

Personal Quotes (1)

[After Fantastic Four (2015)] I want to do something original after this because I've been living under public scrutiny, as you've seen, for the last four years of my life, and it's not healthy for me right now in my life. I want to do something that's below the radar.
