There actually IS some news to cover that broke over the weekend. Fortunately, it is Star Wars related. Chronicle and FF director Josh Trank has
been fired so hard he turned to glass amicably parted ways as director of the second SW standalone film. Why?
Apparently for being something of train wreck on Fantastic Four.
Rumors have persisted that Fox is unhappy with Trank’s performance on Fantastic Four and that Kinberg, who is producing both that film and the second Star Wars spinoff, was getting cold feet about working with Trank again.
In statement, Lucasfilm vp development Hart said, “It was a privilege to collaborate with Josh. We are grateful for the energy and love of Star Wars that he brought to the process, and we wish him all the best.”
Left out was whether the door could or could not hit his ass on the way out.
This is BAAAAADDDD news for the FF movie.
