Rumor: Marvel Studios Secures Rights To ‘Fantastic Four’ From Fox

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 team

This past summer, Fox attempted to revive Fantastic Four with a bold new vision. Starring a young diverse cast consisting of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan, the film would be directed by Josh Trank, but a number of behind-the-scenes problems revealed that it was a troubled shoot. It wasn’t so much of “creative differences” that fueled the conflict, but the shocking allegations of “combative and abusive behavior” by the director, along with Trank reportedly trying to control what the cast could say during the film’s press day, not to mention that he had no faith in the film whatsoever.

In the end, the Fantastic Four reboot tanked at the box office and was widely panned by both critics and audiences, in such a way that it gave hope to the idea that the rights to Marvel’s first family may revert back to Marvel Studios. And that seems to be the case, as a hot rumor says Marvel has struck a deal with Fox to get the rights back to Fantastic Four. More on the story here below.

Tom Hanks in Big

Taking popular movies from the past and reworking them as potential TV shows of the future is all the rage right now. A TV version of Beverly Hills Cop was in the works for a while but never played out. A show based on the ’80s movie Real Genius and the ’90s movie Problem Child were just recently announced. And who can forget the sports drama Necessary Roughness, which is based of course on the classic football comedy of the same name (wait, that can’t be right…).

Now comes word of a pair of new TV shows being developed that are based on hit movies. The first is based on the Tom Hanks classic Big, while the other will be based on the buddy cop movie Rush Hour, which starred Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker.

Many fans of fellow Animation Domination shows like Family Guy and American Dad! watch replays of those shows every night when replays of them are show on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup. And soon you’ll be able to do the same with Bob’s Burgers as well.

Romancing the Stone

NBC has acquired the rights to adapt the 1984 Robert Zemeckis action–adventure romantic comedy, Romancing the Stone, into a TV series.
