Dane DeHaan “Would Love To” Reunite with Josh Trank for the FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot
Weighing on superhero films, naming Spider-Man, rising star Dane DeHaan responded to the press asking whether he'd want to reunite with Chronicle's Josh Trank on his Fantastic Four reboot.
Although the long-awaited Fox-distributed project is years away, famed Chronicle helmer Josh Trank is still signed on to direct the reboot of Marvel's First Family, the Fantastic Four. And after learning this while doing press for his upcoming “prohibition-era gangster film,” Lawless, rising Chronicle star Dane DeHaan discussed possibly reuniting with Trank for the forthcoming superhero film, Hollywood Outbreak reports.
“Thank you, you should publish that,” DeHaan jokingly responded after a journalist told him he'd make a great Human Torch. “My guilty pleasure is superhero movies, I love superhero movies,” he admits. “I think a lot of them are really actually great movies. A lot of times people say ʻOh [they're all] the same thing.’ For instance, like Spider-Man; I've seen that superhero movie before, a lot. But, it wasn't necessarily anything new to me, but I thought they did it so well and it was such a human story. Those are the kind of stories, for me, that inspire me.”
“I love going to those movies in the movie theater. And I do think [Josh] Trank is capable of doing that with superhero movies. So, if I would do another [superhero-like] movie, I would love to do it with him because I know he understands the human aspects of them.” DeHaan concluded, adding that, “He knows they're not just specticle.”
Beyond the swarm of rumors that circulated years ago, one of them being that Benjamin Grimm will be fully CG as the Thing, not much is known regarding the Fantastic Four reboot. From a screenplay by Jeremy Slater, who promises a take on the superhero team that “fans deserve,” Josh Trank will direct the film after 20th Century Fox completes production on The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
