It's almost done...
Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) has polished the script for FOX's reboot of Fantastic Four, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Josh Trank (Chronicle) will direct and Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) will produce.
The comic series was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1961. It focuses on a family of heroes (Mr. Fantastic, his wife Invisible Girl, her brother The Human Torch and Fantastic's best friend The Thing) who have sci-fi themed adventures. Fox made two films in 2005 and 2007 that starred Chris Evans and Jessica Alba. While they were successful in the box office, fans didn't enjoy them.
The new reboot is taking a "grounded" and sci-fi approach and will go deeper into the comics mythology, which not only featured Doctor Doom and Galactus but also the Kree, Skrull (both alien races) and the Negative Zone. Jeremy Slater wrote the script.
