Badass Digest managed to catch up with Josh Trank today to clear up those rumours about The Fantastic Four. The pretty dodgy sounding logline reappeared online today after some sites reported that they were contacted by 20th Century Fox and asked to remove it on the grounds of copyright infringement. That certainly made it appear legit! However, according to the site, "[Josh Trank] strongly, without caveat, denied the story details that led to Slashfilm getting legal attention from Fox. "The only truth in that plot description is that there are four characters named Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny," Trank told me. And he was pretty adamant. "You'll see in June of 2015," that the plot description is absolutely untrue." He also confirmed that @josh_trank is indeed his Twitter account, and is said to be extremely passionate about making the movie. What do you guys think? It should come as a relief to learn that there's no truth to that supposed story outline, but some actual details on the reboot seem to be much needed at this point...

Good job Josh. Do you have any clue about when Fox will announce casting?

I want to have faith in this film, a great director, and a great pick for JOhnny Storm, but the young cast bothers me. It would be much better if it was back home at MS.

Well at least the release date is locked down. The rest I'm sure they'll just throw together.
