Fantastic Four reboot confirmed

Los Angeles - A Fantastic Four reboot has been confirmed, reports SFX magazine.

Fox creative consultant Mark Millar revealed a remake of the Marvel comic book movie will stay true to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's original comics.

Millar insists he has complete faith in Chronicle director Josh Trank to ensure he doesn't detract too much from the original material when he helms the film.

'Grim and gritty'

"You can tell from Chronicle that it was a new way of looking at superheroes, and I think he's going to apply that same slightly skewed way of looking at heroes to the Fantastic Four, but do it in a way that feels incredibly reverential to the Kirby and Lee stuff," Millar said.

But Millar has warned fans of the franchise, which saw Jessica Alba, Kerry Washington and Chris Evans star in the 2005 action film Fantastic Four and the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, not to expect a "grim and gritty" production in the same style as the previous movies.

Millar added: "I don't think you could do Fantastic Four and try and make it grim and gritty."
