Suddenly this Fantastic Four reboot is looking like the real deal. First they brought on Chronicle director Josh Trank to take head of the “world’s greatest comic magazine” and now it appears Fox’s head honcho for all things Marvel, Mark Millar, has pulled off another great move.
Millar tweeted that Matthew Vaughn, director of X-Men: First Class and early favorite for the new Star Wars film, has been brought on to produce the film. It does seem like an odd move for Vaughn. He was set to return for the First Class sequel Days of Future’s Past, but dropped out without warning and was replaced with Bryan Singer. Now he is back in with Marvel and Fox only as a producer.
Casting has not begun or a release date given for the new Fantastic Four.
