Fox was poised to get the Fantastic Four reboot into production as soon as possible with Chronicle director Josh Trank and screenwriter Jeremy Slater originally attached to the project. Looks like the film’s suffered a setback, as the studio decided to hire X-Men: Days of Future Past scriber Simon Kinberg to do a “significant” rewrite for the upcoming remake. In other words, the script is terrible.

A number of other Hollywood writers previously worked on the troubled script, even though none were obviously accepted. That’s not to say Kinberg might not incorporate particular parts from the previous versions into his creation, though we wouldn’t advise it. This is clearly a sign that Fox is struggling to get the film off the ground, as it has yet to cast any talent for the blockbuster feature. We’ll see if the film can make its slated March 6, 2015 release date.
