FOX Taps Jeremy Slater To Pen FANTASTIC 4 Reboot

Following finally attaching a director, trades suggest that FOX is now finalizing a deal with up-and-coming writer Jeremy Slater to pen the screenplay for the Fantastic Four reboot! Check it out!

Only days after announcing that Chronicle director Josh Trank will officially helm the anticipated Fantastic Four reboot, word has gotten out that FOX is near closing a deal with an up-and-coming scribe to pen the screenplay.

Further indicating that the studio is serious about the highly necessary reboot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Jeremy Slater has been hired to write the screenplay. Although considered "up-and-coming," Slater has penned screenplays for a "teen spy comedy" titled My Spy in addition to Tape 4, a horror piece.

Beyond a swarm of rumors from years ago, some of which claim The Thing will be fully CG, nothing solid is known about the reboot. What we do know is that the film will follow The Wolverine and X-Men: First Class sequels on Fox's Marvel slate. And there is also a specified release date set, although unknown. What we can assume, now with a director and writer filled, casting for the Fantastic Four reboot should be in order. What do you think?
