Hey folks, Harry here... Alrighty, here we go... Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR. We've been discussing this film for years now. In fact, when Trank came to Austin for a screening of CHRONICLE, he was already talking about his enthusiasm for making FANTASTIC FOUR. Thus far in the marketing of the film, they haven't really shown us much at all. But then they've wanted the wonders to be introduced in the story. It is interesting to me, that we've got films actively in theaters by Peyton Reed and Chris Columbus... both of them worked to bring the FANTASTIC FOUR to screen, both didn't quite make it. The Roger Corman version has more of the spirit of the comics, but woefully underfunded. Tim Story's FANTASTIC FOUR films, other than Doug Jones' SILVER SURFER, were pretty much wastes of time.
I'm wildly excited to see what Trank has in store for us. In interviews he's citing Cronenberg & Spielberg as his influences for this film - and I'm quite excited to see that play out. In fact, after I post this I'm going to put on CHRONICLE for another view!
