THE FANTASTIC FOUR To Have 'Found-Footage Feel' Says Fox Production President

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Watts revealed a few tidbits about Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot as well as Bryan Singer's allegations and whether or not he'll helm X-Men: Apocalypse. Hit the jump!

A lot of fans have been very skeptical about Josh Trank's up coming reboot of the Fantastic Four. Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox's President of Productions Emma Watts revealed  what we can expect from the film, "We're making a big bet for 2015 with The Fantastic Four and director Josh Trank," said Emma, "To me, the key is the originality of the filmmakers and the choices they make. Josh is another really interesting example, who is using the vision he gave us in Chronicle to reinvent a franchise he's loved his whole life. It's not that you can't make original ideas -- you can, and we did it with Chronicle. The director is the key to not letting superhero movies go stale. That's the truth." On whether or not the film will have a similar found footage style that Chronicle had, Watts revealed,"It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel. That's his talent, that's what he does, and that's what excites him about it. It is a really interesting young cast, and he is the magnet that's brought them all together." So does this more or less confirm that the movie will be found footage? It's a very interesting approach that will certainly distinguish the film from the current trend of superhero films we've been getting lately. Do you guys like this idea?

 The inevitable question of Bryan Singer's allegations was brought up, focusing on the director's decision to withdraw from the publicity tour for the film. Emma commented, "It was really tough for him. Luckily, we had 18 mutants to get out there and sell the movie. But I think he did what had to be done."  Because of the allegations and rumours about Singer not returning , a lot of people are questioning if the director will return for X-Men: Apocalypse. Well Emma had to say this on the matter, "Right now we are totally at the outlining phase. But nothing would make me happier than if it all worked out. It's always been the intention for him to do it." While this certainly doesn't out right answer the obvious question, she does seem confident that Singer will be back for Apocalypse.  What do you guys think? Are you looking forward to both Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse? Leave your thoughts down below.
