‘Fantastic Four’ Reboot Getting Script Polish From ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ Scribe

The “Fantastic Four” reboot seems to be chugging right along — but is everything right with the ship?

Marvel’s First Family is getting a script polish courtesy of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” writer Seth Grahame-Smith. That’s not the greatest news for people who thought the 16th U.S. President’s vampire-slaying adventures were a bit over-the-top.

In brighter news, The Hollywood Reporter stresses that the new “Fantastic Four” movie will be “taking a grounded superhero and sci-fi approach to the heroes and will tap deep into the comics mythology, which featured not just the better-known villains such as Doctor Doom and Galactus but also alien races the Kree and the Skrull, and the anti-matter universe known as the Negative Zone.” No guarantee that all of those elements make it into the movie, but it certainly lines up with what Mark Millar teased a few weeks back.

“There’s some moments in this – not to be specific – that are actually gonna be phenomenal on screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before,” he said in an interview last month.

Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” is slated for a March 2015 release.
