A couple of new photos from Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” have gone online, each one featuring one of the film’s main stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. The shots come from Empire magazine who also spoke with Trank and writer/producer Simon Kinberg about the upcoming and decidedly more science-fiction oriented take on the material.
Trank labels it a distinctly less cartoonish approach and a “dark Amblin” movie with Kinberg adding: “there was an Amblin-style approach to the characterisation, and to contextualising everything in a real world.”
Trank also says: “The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It’s just not something that me and Simon (Kinberg) are interested in as storytellers. There’s the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The opportunity is right there in the material. We’d rather steer it in that direction as opposed to just embracing a tone that comes right off the page.”
