Relaunch Fantastic 4
The other day, a crazy rumor appeared on the network that Jennifer Lawrence will play Susan Storm in the restart of Fantastic Four. The Daily Telegraph also announced that the actress will travel to Australia where production will begin this year.
However, Deadline journalist Justin Krall noted on his Twitter that Marvel has just begun to negotiate with the authors about the script for the future film. From this, it follows that filming is unlikely to begin this year. Moreover, the director of the upcoming film, John Watts, is now extremely busy developing a new “Spider-Man”.
Nevertheless, Kroll’s information confirms that the previously announced restart has indeed gotten off the ground. Whether Lawrence will actually play in it, the studio did not comment.
All I’m gonna say is this, Marvel just started meeting with writers on FANTASTIC FOUR, there is no script and it will be awhile before this film starts shooting— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) February 21, 2021
Recall that the comics “Fantastic 4” has been filmed by Fox twice. In 2005, the film of the same name was released, which then received a sequel. Also in 2015, the project was restarted by Josh Trank, but the tape failed at the box office and received low ratings from critics and viewers.
