According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simon Kinberg is set to rewrite the Fantastic Four reboot for 20th Century Fox. He will also produce the film along with Matthew Vaughn, who he worked with on X-Men: First Class. Josh Trank is still set to direct the film.
The Fantastic Four were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Marvel in 1961. It involves a family of heroes, including scientist Mr. Fantastic, his wife The Invisible Girl (later Invisible Woman), her brother The Human Torch and Mr. Fantastic's best friend, The Thing. The quartet have sci-fi adventures using their superpowers while staying in the high-rise Baxter Building in New York City.
Jeremy Slater, Michael Green, Seth Grahame-Smith and T.S. Nowlin have all worked on versions of the script. Kinberg may rewrite the new film quite a bit, changing several elements.
Kingberg previously worked on X-Men: The Last Stand and produced First Class. He is working with Vaughn as a co-writer and producer of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
