Josh Trank On Potential Sequel To CHRONICLE; Definitively Shoots Down FANTASTIC FOUR Rumors
The director speaks about a potential follow up to his successful found footage Superhero flick, and finally shoots down those FF rumors, admitting that he has never so much as met with Fox about rebooting the franchise..
In an interview with The Playlist, Chronicle director Josh Trank admits that a follow up is by no means set in stone, and suggests that even if Fox wanted to move ahead with a sequel, he may not..
"I'm still not sure [about 'Chronicle 2']. I was nervous this type of movie would be perceived as a gimmick. So I was in denial for awhile about what the potential of the film could be."
Admittedly, as much as I would love to see a sequel to the brilliant Chronicle, I'm not sure using the same found footage technique would really work a second time. It may be better to switch to a more conventional style, but would that have the same impact? Anyway, Trank also addressed those Fantastic Four reboot rumors that refuse to go away. In the past he has kind of avoided the question, saying things like "We'll see", "I know as much as you do" etc. But now he flat out denies there has been any talk about it at all. He does say he has a deal to make more movies with Fox, so I guess it's a possibility..
"I have not met about 'Fantastic Four' reboots. I was on the press tour and had to call everybody up and ask, what is this about? 'Fantastic Four' is at Fox, and I guess someone theorized about it, someone heard it, and Variety was like, that’s happening! I can’t really speak on that, because I don’t know what to say. I do have a deal with Fox, but right now I’m trying to work on original ideas"
