Josh Trank, the director of the new Fantastic Four film which came out widespread today in theaters, is apparently not a fan. Taking to Twitter last night, Trank wrote, “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve recieved (sic) great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though.”
The director, most known for his sci-fi superhero-with-a-twist film Chronicle, was given the reins to Fantastic Four, but apparently had them plucked out of his hands in the editing room — not an uncommon fate for Hollywood.
Currently the film has a 10 on Rotten Tomatoes, which is bad. It’s like Paris Hilton movie bad. Not a great sign for what is Fox’s third attempt to make their only other superhero “franchise” besides X-men into a viable financial winner.
The tweet was quickly deleted, but considering you can see it up above, it’s just a reminder of how things go in internet land. If it makes Trank feel any better, I thought this iteration of Fantastic Four was going to suck right from the casting.
