Matthew Vaughn Talks “Fantastic 4” Reboot

“Kick Ass” and “X-Men: First Class” director Matthew Vaughn is also involved in a third superhero franchise, albeit only in a producer role – Fox’s “Fantastic Four” reboot.

Recently speaking with Empire (via NME), Vaughn claims the new film will be nothing like the previous two movies that starred the likes of Jessica Alba and Chris Evans.

Vaughn says: “It’s a total reboot that’s for sure. It’s got nothing to with the other bloody ones. It’s not a stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it’s made of polystyrene. And it’s not a comedy.”

Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star in the new project which is due in cinemas June 2015.
