'Fantastic Four' gets a script polish from 'Dark Shadows' writer Seth Grahame-Smith
The script for Fox's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot is getting a polish from the prolific Seth Grahame-Smith ("Dark Shadows," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter").
Jeremy Slater wrote the initial script for director Josh Trank ("Chronicle") and newly-appointed producer Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class").
Fox previously made two "Fantastic Four" films starring Jessica Alba and future "Avengers" star Chris Evans, in 2005 and 2007.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reboot is taking a more "grounded" approach and will rely on the mythology of the beloved Marvel Comics, although it's not yet known if the FF will face such well-known villains as Doctor Doom and Galactus again, or face a new evil.
In addition to his recent film work, Graham-Smith solidified his genre credits by writing "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and "The Spider-Man Handbook: The Ultimate Training Manual."
