Writer Peter David has announced on his official website that he’ll be writing the Fantastic Four movie adaptation:
As for the FF film, I can tell you with authority (but without going into detail) that it is not at all the goofball comedy as first reported, but instead faithful in tone and style to the Lee/Kirby comics. There’s some major changes in terms of the origin, but less than what they did in “Ultimate FF,” and besides, c’mon–four people trying to get to the moon before the Russians? Just a TAD dated. How do I know this? Because I’ve been hired by Pocket Books to do the novelization of the film. So this’ll be my fourth novelization of a Marvel comics movie.
