After announcing a few days ago that Chronicle helmer Josh Trank will be taking on Fantastic Four, Fox now has a writer on the project.
According to THR, Jeremy Slater has been brought in to write the script for the family superhero movie. The only unfortunate news about the film is that it will not start production until after The Wolverine and the X-Men: First Class Sequel, meaning it won’t start until spring or summer 2013.
Slater is a pretty busy guy as he also has a Lovecraftian horror movie in development at Lionsgate and the teen spy comedy My Spy at Universal. Let’s hope he does justice to the FF.
