Josh Trank Officially Set For FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot; David Slade Exits DAREDEVIL Reboot

Recent reports suggest that plans for Fox's Fantastic Four reboot have been set in motion with Chronicle director Josh Trank officially on board; while Daredevil has lost its director!



Although Twentieth Century Fox has no big announcements for this week's San Diego Comic-Con, the ever-reliable Deadline has obtained various updates surrounding the studios' Marvel property slate. The site has revealed finalized plans for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, in addition to a setback for the Daredevil film.

Deadline suggests that, despite having many projects in the works, Chronicle director Josh Trank is in final negotiations to helm the Fantastic Four reboot next. Also, the film will be the next Marvel project on Fox's radar to move into production following The Wolverine & X-Men: First Class sequels. A release date has been locked.

In regards to the Daredevil remake, the site further reports that David Slade has dropped the project, while Fox has been on the hunt for a new director since. With a completed screenplay they're happy, they're hoping to kick off production for the remake before the The Man Without Fear's rights revert back to Marvel Studios. The reason for Slade's departure is timing; mainly having to direct the pilot of a Hannibal series.

Josh Trank was also on Sony's radar to helm their Spidey spin-off, Venom, however, he'll direct F4 first.
