Elysium, X-Men: Days of Future Past Writer to Rewrite Fantastic Four Reboot

Fantastic Four Season One

Simon Kinberg has an eye, and a hand, for writing nerd fiction. Kinberg most recently wrote Elysium and both X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Now Fox has hired Kinberg to rewrite the next Fantastic Four movie, according to Crave's CinemaBlend website. Jeremy Slater wrote the initial script, which Seth Grahame-Smith then reworked.

Fantastic Four, directed by Josh Trank, is supposed to come out March 16, 2015. Of course, shooting was also supposed to start in Louisiana last month too. Guess we will have to see.
