One movie that debuts later this year but fans have yet to see a single still from is FOX’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. It stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara and Micheal B. Jordan as Susan and Johnny Storm. With Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm. It’s already been dismissed by most of the comic fan community as a huge cash grab that FOX rushed together to retain the rights from Marvel Comics Studios . . .
Recently some new allegations against director Josh Trank has emerged about his involvement on the film. According to several thread posts on Tiger Droppings from individuals associated with the project say he allegedly destroyed several thousand dollars worth of property to sets, housing & showing up to the set intoxicated:
“After the crap Trank pulled in Baton Rouge, I doubt he ever directs a studio picture again. He will certainly never work for Fox. At this point that F4 reboot might never get released.
A buddy of mine was on the crew. Trank showed up to set late and was so high he couldn’t speak almost everyday. Some days he didn’t show up at all. He treated crew terribly. He trashed the house the production company rented for him. From what I’m told he did a couple hundred grand worth of damage.
Trank did so much damage to the house that Jim Gianopulos came to Baton Rouge and personally apologized to the owners. Trust me, Trank’s career is done. There will be no major sequels or spin offs for him.”
Now this could turn out too be nothing more than typical Hollywood back ‘n’ forth by bitter employees or it could prove to be the real thing. At this point, until the studio makes an official announcement to the public “if ever”, we just don’t know.
Now CinemaZone is pretty sure that anyone reading this wishes nothing but good things for Josh Trank and his future career, although at the same time, many a fan hopes this recent Fox Studio cash grab of a film, crashes and burns, quite literally.
It also should be noted that Josh Trank was earlier in the year hired by Disney to direct the second untitled stand-alone Star Wars film after Gareth Edwards. So if he acted like this how did he nab that gig or at least retain it in Disney eyes? Rest assured CinemaZone we’ll keep you posted if more details comes in . . . .
