EXCLUSIVE - RUMOR DEBUNKED: Director David Yates NOT Offered Fantastic Four
“And to tell you the truth,” Yates, who has recently wrapped Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2, explains in an exclusive interview, “I’ve no interest in doing Fantastic Four, frankly, and there have been no discussions about it. I think more than anything after Potter, I need a bit of a break. And there are two or three things I really like a lot that would come before anything else. Even though they’re not announced, there are a few things that I really, really like a lot that I’m keeping under my hat to make sure they’re cooking. So my schedule wouldn’t allow it anyway, but, again, I haven’t had any discussions with anyone.”
Despite wide-spread rumors claiming that he was one of three directors in contention to direct 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four, David Yates states categorically that he has not had any discussions with anyone about the project.
