FANTASTIC FOUR Rumors Officially Denied

FANTASTIC FOUR Rumors Officially Denied

Sorry to burst some bubbles (or perhaps not to some) but Bleeding Cool has officially redacted their Fantastic Four scoop from last Friday and the project is moving forward. Hit the jump for more.

Yes, despite multiple sources denying Bleeding Cool's latest scoop, Bleeding Cool themselves have officially redacted the report. However, they state that there rumors were ONCE true and they were even approached by Fox last week, but now the plan is to continue ahead with what they already have. Here is what Bleeding Cool had to say on the matter:

So Bleeding Cool ran a story on Friday, that Fox had been speaking to prominent movie directors and screenwriters, asking them if they’d be willing to take over the currently-in-pre-production Fantastic Four for a new shoot in six months. Which would mean new script, new director and recasting.

Our sources were impeccable. By which we mean those who had actually been approached by Fox for this gig.

We ran the story and there was a pretty much immediate spinback from Fox via Screen Crush. Massive denial. Covered by all sorts of folks.

We are in no doubt that Fox are going ahead with their current production plans with Fantastic Four.

Right now. But, last week we were also in no doubt that they’d been looking to junk it all. And these aren’t mutually exclusive notions.

It’s quite possible that no one they approached said yes. Bleeding Cool knows, directly, of two big names who said no.

It should be noted that Fox approached two "big names" to take over the film. Who could those two be? What are your thoughts on this? Are you glad the project is moving forward with its current cast and crew, or are you hoping the project will be dumped in the near future? Sound off below!

Until next time, try to stay classy my friends.

Fantastic Four is set to hit theaters in 2015 while staring Miles Teller, Kata Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jaime Bell and will be directed by Josh Trank and written by Simon Kinberg

Until I actually see a set photo, I still have hope that this movie wont get made.
marvel72 - 3/17/2014, 5:19 PM

reboot the reboot.
BatmanHeisenberg - 3/17/2014, 5:19 PM
Very happy. Love Kate Mara in House of Cards, and I love MBJ, and I loved Chronicle, so I am VERY interested to see how this unfolds.

Here comes all the hate and complaining in

Make a poll!! I wish I knew where the majority of us stood on this film.
ComicsToFilm - 3/17/2014, 5:22 PM
I didn't need it debunked.

And most of those who did won't care about facts. Other than take the opportunity to rage.

@Guardian Love the GIF.

What did the Earth do to deserve this?

Oh...And F*CK YOU FOX!!

ComicsToFilm - 3/17/2014, 5:23 PM
MrSid, may I ask how you think the rest of this movie looks like shit, when they have released no images? Curiosity only.
JamesMan - 3/17/2014, 5:25 PM
Pheezmatic - 3/17/2014, 5:25 PM
Also... doesn't it say something that FOX was even thinking of scrapping it?

No, right?...
Still this movie will rock, right?

This whole thing reminds me of a drunk college student standing on an apartment roof, trying to see if he can make the jump to the pool.

Meh can't really get behind this film.So which ever way it goes I could care less.
marvel72 - 3/17/2014, 5:28 PM
i may torrent it just to see how bad it is because it will be.
MrReese - 3/17/2014, 5:28 PM
@SuperCat lmao
Nick56 - 3/17/2014, 5:29 PM
I still can't figure out why this movie is getting so much negative reactions already. The cast, for the most part, is great, the director, writer, and producer are all talented people, and the studio has proven they can make great CBMs in recent years (First Class, Wolverine). Seriously wtf is everybody complaining about!?!

Yea Sid...

Get it iiin :)
Indy - 3/17/2014, 5:35 PM
Good work.
MediaMan - 3/17/2014, 5:35 PM
Oh, well, at least I don't have to worry about going to see this mess in a theater... I just saved a few hours of my life...
ComicsToFilm - 3/17/2014, 5:36 PM
I wish DrDoom was used as an account for more than complaining about Fox. Seems so uncharacteristic.
VISIONaryNPa - 3/17/2014, 5:36 PM

wow, bleeding cool is... I can't even..

This is all I'll say..

way to go, Bleeding Cool, for making yourselves look like jackasses.

marvel72 - 3/17/2014, 5:39 PM
@ ALegendaryPanda

no but do you think this is going to be good?
VISIONaryNPa - 3/17/2014, 5:39 PM
at this point, them casting a female version of DR. DOOM wouldn't be such a bad idea with all this [frick]ery going on...

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby start the Marvel Revolution with the Fantastic Four... a revolution that changes the face of comics...and THIS is the thanks they get!
