Fox has aroused our curiosity at its Comic-Con panel last night by opting not to include anything for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which finds Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the key roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively). However, we may get a few scoops out of the tentpole yet.
A new image (above) has hit the web, depicting what looks to be the the reference CGI bust of the Thing being used on Trank’s film. A mysterious Twitter account called @justifiedfilms, which has since been deleted, tweeted out the pic, which of course has been immortalized on the web. For those who don’t know, a reference bust is essentially a placeholder marker intended for the computer animators, who use it to then »

Movie News - The new 'Fantastic Four' will be ''different from other comic book films''. Scriptwriter Simon Kinberg has promised the ambitious reboot of the superhero franchise will be unlike anything fans have seen in previous movies in the genre, such as 'The Avengers' and the 'X-Men' films. He told Latino-Review.com: ''We are hopefully going to be refining the way the people see the 'Fantastic Four' movies. There are so many things we are doing different from the previous film and so many things different from other comic books films.'' The Josh Trank-directed movie will be a stark departure from the critically mauled 2005 and 2007 'Fantastic Four' films which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans. The new take will star Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and »
Toronto’s lineup, announced Tuesday, has awards pundits drooling in anticipation, but here’s some free advice: Wipe away the drool and manage your expectations.
A few years ago, the Canadian fest was the focus of many awards campaigns. But the situation is changing so quickly that Toronto is still a big factor, but it’s no longer the key factor. And that’s a good thing for everybody.
There are certainly plenty of tantalizing Toronto titles. The ones that sound (on paper) like strong awards contenders include “Black and White” (Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in a custody battle), “The Equalizer” (Denzel Washington, reuniting with Antoine Fuqua), “The Imitation Game” (Benedict Cumberbatch), “The Judge” (Robert Downey Jr., pictured), “Men, Women and Children” (directed by Jason Reitman), “Nightcrawler” (Jake Gyllenhaal, in Dan Gilroy’s film-directing debut), and “Theory of Everything” (Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking), as well as Cannes hits like “Foxcatcher” and “Mr. Turner. »

Here he talks about the secrecy of the project:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates is leaving the castles and magical schools of the wizarding world behind, and heading into the jungle for a reboot of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan. Production on the long-gestating project is finally underway, and to celebrate Warner Brothers have released its first official synopsis:
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom. But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
There have been over 200 film incarnations of the iconic apeman, »

Although Fox has been planning the upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four since 2009, the new franchise didn’t start gaining traction until Josh Trank (Chronicle) was hired to direct in 2012. Aside from the discussion of whether it’s too soon to reboot the characters, The Fantastic Four production has been rife with controversies. Between the casting choices (specifically Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch), the script, and the manner in which Marvel has handled Fantastic Four, Fox’s upcoming superhero flick is no stranger to the online fan debate – in publications and comments sections alike.

Kate Mara doesn’t read comic books, doesn’t want to read comic books and won’t need to read comic books in order to play The Invisible Woman in Fox’s upcoming The Fantastic Four. That’s because director Josh Trank told the cast they should avoid reading the comic books since the new movie won’t be based on anything that’s already down on ink and paper. This might be the best news possible for the genre. It’s unsurprising, though, because comic book movies have largely outgrown their paged counterparts over the last decade even as productions remain near-slavish to stories we’ve read before, villains we already know and imagery that’s taken directly from the source. Why is this great news? Because we’re having our culture happily fed back to us as we ask for seconds and thirds, and that’s a problem. It »

Gird your loins, nerd army... Director Josh Trank (Chronicle) is currently hard at work on Fox’s reboot of classic Marvel comic the Fantastic Four - and it has now emerged that the story will not be based on any plotline from the original comics.

Kata Mara has revealed that the story of the new Fantastic Four film will not be found in existing comics...
Josh Trank's upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four series for 20th Century Fox has already attracted no shortage of internet chatter, just off the back of its casting decisions. This latest titbit is unlikely to slow the conversation down.
Kate Mara is playing Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman in the new Fantastic Four, and she's given an interview to Esquire, that was picked up by Live for Films. She admitted in the interview that "I've never been a fan of comics. I've never actually read one", and when she was going to pick some up to get familiar with the role, "the director said it wasn't necessary".
Mara went on to say that "Well, actually he told us that we shouldn't do it because the plot won't be »
If you’ve been following the development of Fox’s reboot of The Fantastic Four, then you’ll no doubt be aware that director Josh Trank (Chronicle) intends on delivering something different to the traditional comic book incarnation of Marvel’s First Family. With the casting of younger actors, it was thought that the studio had decided to go down the Ultimate Fantastic Four route, but now Kate Mara – who is set to play Susan Storm / The Invisible Woman – has indicated that may not be the case after all…
“I was going to read comic books for this movie but the director said it wasn’t necessary,” Mara tells Esquire Latinoamerica (via Cbm). “Well, actually he told us that we shouldn’t do it because the plot won’t be based on any history of anything already published. So I chose to follow his instructions… We are also trying to »

The Fantastic Four reboot continues to generate controversy amongst fans. While director Josh Trank's (Chronicle; Untitled Star Wars Spin-Off) take on the Marvel property has long been thought to be an adaptation of the Ultimate Fantastic Four storyline, which brings a modernized re-imagining of the superhero team, star Kate Mara is now claiming that the upcoming franchise remake isn't even based on the Marvel comic books.
How is that possible?
"I've never been a fan of comics, I've never actually read one. I was going to for this movie but the director said it wasn't necessary. Well, actually he told us that we shouldn't do it because the plot won't be based on any history of anything already published. »
"The Fantastic Four" is going in a fresh, new direction.
That's according to star Kate Mara, who plays Sue Storm aka The Invisible Woman. The actress (who recently received an Emmy nomination for her role in Netflix's "House of Cards") revealed that the upcoming movie reboot will not be based on stories from the Marvel Comics.
"I've never been a fan of comics, I've never actually read one. I was going to for this movie but the director [Josh Trank] said it wasn't necessary," she told Esquire Latinoamérica (via ComicBookMovie.com).
"Well, actually he told us that we shouldn't do it because the plot won't be based on any history of anything already published. So I chose to follow his instructions. The one fact is I am a fan of comic book movies, so it's very exciting to be part of a movie like this. "
Sounds like Trank is trying to appeal »
