Josh Trank Sets The Record Straight On Those Plot Rumors About THE FANTASTIC FOUR

Chronicle director Josh Trank has confirmed that his Twitter account is indeed the real deal, and goes on the record to fully debunk the plot rumours which resurfaced today, saying that the only thing they got right was the name of the characters! Hit the jump for details.


Badass Digest managed to catch up with Josh Trank today to clear up those rumours about The Fantastic Four. The pretty dodgy sounding logline reappeared online today after some sites reported that they were contacted by 20th Century Fox and asked to remove it on the grounds of copyright infringement. That certainly made it appear legit! However, according to the site, "[Josh Trank] strongly, without caveat, denied the story details that led to Slashfilm getting legal attention from Fox. "The only truth in that plot description is that there are four characters named Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny," Trank told me. And he was pretty adamant. "You'll see in June of 2015," that the plot description is absolutely untrue." He also confirmed that @josh_trank is indeed his Twitter account, and is said to be extremely passionate about making the movie. What do you guys think? It should come as a relief to learn that there's no truth to that supposed story outline, but some actual details on the reboot seem to be much needed at this point...
