‘Fantastic Four’ Rumor Buster: Fox Has Fired the Director, Ditched the Script and Wants to Recast the Movie?

UPDATE: For what it's worth, we spoke to some high-level studio sources who flatly denied the below report and stated it's "not at all" true. Filming is still scheduled to begin on April 21 and Trank himself is on set right now.

The 'Fantastic Four' movie has not been without its hiccups, but few superhero movies are. We didn't think much of the troubles and when the cast was finally announced - Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell - we assumed it would be a fairly smooth ride to the start of production this summer. But, according to a shocking new report, Fox is looking to reboot it's reboot: they reportedly have fired director Josh Trank, thrown out the existing script and are looking to recast the movie.

New ‘Transformers 4′ Poster: Mark Wahlberg and His Giant Robot Gun

'Transformers 4' is not a reboot, but it has done away with the human cast you may have been familiar with after the first three movies. Taking over for Shia LaBeouf is Mark Wahlberg, who's role in this movie is to be the father of a really beautiful girl (Nicola Peltz, taking over for Megan Fox). Presumably he has something else to do because in this new 'Transformers 4' poster, he's got a really, really big alien gun. And he's ready to use it.
