Little is known about the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four at Twentieth Century Fox Film, but the person most likely to know something, and spill the beans a little, is Fox creative consultant Mark Millar.
“From what I’ve seen and from talking to him – he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well – he’s contemporising it,” Millar said in an interview with SciFiNow. “I think he’s just making it work for the screen – he’s a great storyteller.
“Chronicle, if you think about it, was similar to Fantastic Four in that it was a bunch of people who were transformed into something more than human – that turned out almost his calling card to come and do something like Fantastic Four.
“What I wasn’t expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen – I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know? The Ridley Scott moments, and the Fantastic Four really are jaw-dropping in the same way you feel when you saw Alien for the first time. There’s some moments in this – not to be specific – that are actually gonna be phenomenal on screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before.”
The film is slated for a March 6, 2015 release date. Michael Green and Jeremy Slater wrote the script. Are you excited about the Fantastic Four reboot?
