Hot on the heels that Fox’s planned reboot of the Fantastic Four will be helmed by Chronicle director, Josh Trank, the studio has tapped Jeremy Slater to pen the project. The first family of Marvel that features the Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, the Human Torch and the Thing previously appeared in two movies, 2005′s Fantastic Four and the sequel, 2007′s Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Neither of those properties were particularly good and didn’t make a dent in the same way that other Marvel or DC properties have in recent years. Attaching the director for the surprise superhero hit, Chronicle and now Slater, who has a Lovecraftian spec script for Tape 4 set up at Lionsgate, may go a long way in giving the remake some geek cred.
