Simon Kinberg to Rewrite Fantastic Four

October 1, 2013


Josh Trank's Fantastic Four was rumored to begin production last month, but it's now looking like it may take a bit longer before Marvel's first family steps before the cameras. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past scribe Simon Kinberg has boarded the project as both a screenwriter and producer.

Seth Grahame-Smith, Michael Green T.S. Nowlin and Jeremy Slater previously worked on Fantastic Four and, while no casting is yet official, the release date is still set for March 6, 2015.

It was previously suggested that 20th Century Fox will set Fantastic Four in the same cinematic universe as their X-Men franchise, although no direct big screen crossover is currently being planned.
