The next Fantastic Four film has a writer

— Posted by Ryan


The new Fantastic Four film looks like it is a go. After recently signing Josh Trank (Chronicle) to direct the film, a newcomer named Jeremy Slater has been giving the task of writing the script.


Fox is really hustling with its Fantastic Four reboot.
Just days after putting Chronicle director Josh Trank on the project, the studio is finalizing a deal to have Jeremy Slater write the script.

It seems like the comic book movie cash cow may never dry up as long as Hollywood is able to reboot film after film. Although we are hearing about multiple reboots, I think this comic book movie would benefit the most from a reboot. The Fantastic Four are probably one of the most significant teams in the Marvel universe, possibly even bigger than the Avengers based on their influence on significant events. The last two films did not do them justice in my opinion, and things need to be a little bit more “adult” and less campy. Hopefully this film will do them justice and fix the mistakes made in the previous films.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
