Rumors of unrest during production on The Fantastic Four; trailer coming

01.14.2015

It looks like we will finally get a chance to see what Josh Trank's THE FANTASTIC FOUR looks like come February 13th with the teaser supposedly attached to KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE. But, as all of you already know, everyone has a bad feeling about this movie. Whether it be a source confirming rumors or Matthew Vaughn giving his seal of approval, nobody has anything but cautious thoughts about the reboot of Marvel's familial superhero squad.

Now, we are hearing the pretty quiet production may have been anything but. Tiger Droppings has run a story claiming that Josh Trank mistreated the crew and trashed the set to the point that Fox CEO Jim Gianopulos had to travel to the location to apologize in person to the owners. The sources also claim that Trank will not be involved with the film's sequel. Some clarifying statements had the sets that Trank "trashed" being ones he was using as living quarters during production and not actual shooting sets. The damage may have been in the thousands of dollars range, not catastrophic damage to expensive production sets.

Now, where this may be a big steaming pile of bullshit is that Trank is attached to helm the 2018 STAR WARS spin-off. If he was this off the rails, why would Disney even risk bringing him on board? Granted, nothing is in stone until production begins and that could call change once THE FANTASTIC FOUR hits theaters, but I would venture to guess things may be overstated a bit. But, with all of the other rumors swirling around what many are underwhelmed to see, it will be interesting to see if we all eat our words.

THE FANTASTIC FOUR hits theaters on August 7, 2015.

I've never been so excited about not spending my money on something in my entire life. I'm gonna frame the 10 dollars I didn't spend on this shitfest.

More negative vibes for a film I already had zero interest in seeing.

I think Chronicle is a really clever film. I remember many, many people (myself very much included) were convinced that X-Men: DoFP was going to be an enormous train-wreck. It caught a ton of shit during production and then ended up as arguably the best X-Men film of them all. It's not impossible this could end up the same way.

I remember people complaining about some of the casting and addition of random characters. I don't remember anyone predicting it to be a train wreck though.

In fairness to those they do a decent job at keeping a good sense of humor related to the charecters which is a nice difference from the dour superheor films. Also Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis own thier respective roles.

I would almost guarantee that the trailer will have all the "holy shit" moments from the film, of which I'm sure there will be some neat visual stuff even if the movie sucks. This way the internet looks like it has egg on the face and then word will spread that the movie "doesn't look as bad as we thought" or "the jury's out." Then we'll all see it and hate it.

Him, his rebooted trainwreck of Fantastic Four, and his overrated film Chronicle can all go fuck themselves.

Although I have NO faith in this film so far

I guess Josh Trank just felt the pressure of a BIG studio film, after doing ONLY ONE small one !
If he trashed ONLY his living quarters it looks like he didn't want to hurt people or shooting sets, but mostly release some steam !
I just see someone not having control over his film anymore (and probably hurt by the internet comments) and loosing his calm... Probably mad at the Studio Executives but not at the crew IMO...
AND I STILL THINK THIS FILM WILL BE TRASH !

Just to clarify, Trank was hired to do the 2018 Star Wars movie BECAUSE Disney wanted to force him off FF2. Marvel is NOT happy that this property is in someone else's hands, and they're playing dirty tricks like that to undermine it. So the fact that he's not attached to the sequel has nothing to do with his conduct on-set, whatever that may be like in real life non-rumor land.

Really guys?

Is this what's being reported? Now everyone supposedly has a bad feeling about this movie thanks to unconfirmed rumors started by anonymous online forum users and fanboys being skeptical about a producer's opinion on the movie?

If anything it sounds like a bunch of crybabies want to give this movie as much shit before any official look at it comes out. Just look at the comments section in from the Vaughn quote article. It's as if a bunch of fanboys appeared to make sure everyone hates this

It's as if a bunch of fanboys appeared to make sure everyone hates this movie even though nobody outside of the production knows what it even looks like.

The movie is 8 months away. Most movies barely even get a a teaser until at least 6 months from release. "Oh, we haven't seen anything about this movie yet, hmm, must mean it's a turd." Most of the negativity towards this movie sounds like a bunch of spoiled children whining about not getting what they want before they even know what they're getting.

6 months? We got a Star Wars teaser over a year before the movie and we've seen more from Batman vs Superman than this ticking bomb

Just for the record, most of the bad vibes about this film have come from people working on it including actors leaking bits & pieces that make it sound like whatever it is, this movie is NOT the classic Fantastic Four characters.

I think people's opinions are fair. At this point there would have been some promo materials released, a few set photos, even a teaser trailer would have been released by now. But they've shown nothing, and all we've gotten so far are people from the cast and crew talking about "how great it is" and describing a bunch of story elements that are not remotely anything like the Fantastic Four. Perhaps the footage they release will change everyone's minds, but up til now all we have are quotes

If the movie is as great as they say and will definitely be a must-see movie, then prove us otherwise Fox.

His career just might fizzle out. Who would want to work with a guy like that?

So basically he's a hybrid of David O. Russell, J.J. Abrams and Terrence Malick. Not sure what to make of that.

Yeah, that seems pretty accurate. The only thing missing is reports of Miles Teller choking him
