Catching up with Fox president Tom Rothman at this year's CinemaCon, the exec confirmed that Chronicle director Josh Trank has indeed been attached to direct the studio's Fantastic Four reboot movie. However, Rothman was hesitant to say that Trank was a lock to make the picture:

"Well, I think there’s a possibility of [him directing].  I mean he’s gonna develop it now, and then it depends on the script," Rothman said.

Chris Evans, who played Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the two Fantastic Four movies, spoke recently with several online journalists and shared his thoughts about Fox's reboot plans. |I don't think I'm going to be involved with it. I think they're going to start from scratch," Evans answered (and was reported by Latino Review.) "If there's room to reinvent a franchise in a different tone and they can make a good film out of it then so be it. I have nothing negative to say about it."

When further asked if he was sad that he wouldn't be back to play Marvel's main hothead character, Evans replied, "I welcome the new franchise; I hope it's fantastic. I like good movies. I'm sure Michael Keaton felt the same way. I'm sure Christopher Reeves felt the same way. If it's a great movie, let's make it, let's get it out there. There aren't enough of them."
