Fantastic Four Header

Seth Grahame-Smith is a pretty decent writer whose books do really well, but when it comes to screenplays, that’s a whole other story. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the movie he wrote from his novel of the same name, was critically panned and bombed at the box office, but that isn’t stopping the writer from taking on other projects. Heat Vision has word that the screenwriter will be taking his talents to the comic book world now by rewriting the script for the Fantastic Four reboot, directed by Josh Trank.

According to the trade, the new superhero film will take a grounded approach, but have sci-fi elements attached to it. It will also “tap deep into the comics mythology, which featured not just the better-known villains such as Doctor Doom and Galactus but also alien races the Kree and the Skrull, and the anti-matter universe known as the Negative Zone.”

The draft was originally written by Jeremy Slater.

Grahame-Smith’s another novel Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies was on it way to become a film adaptation as well, with Natalie Portman starring, but it never found its way into production. He also polished the script for Tim Burton’s adaptation of Dark Shadows, which also flopped at the box office last year.

With all the changes that have happened between the studios and their respective Marvel properties, it should be interesting to see how Slater’s script and Grahame-Smith’s rewrites adapt to all of it.
