Simon Kinberg To Rewrite And Produce Fox's FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot
THR reports that Simon Kinberg is doing major rewrites to The Fantastic Four script and will produce. Kinberg is best known for his work within the X-Men franchise. Helping write scripts for X-Men: The Last Stand and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. He also produced Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, Vaughn is producing Fantastic Four with Josh Trank still set to direct. Apparently, Fox isn't happy with where the script currently is and Simon will be overhauling it. Simon is also helping produce and write Star Wars films for Lucasfilm. The script problems (four writers already working on it) are likely why production and casting haven't been announced by Fox.
