Peyton Reed exits THE FANTASTIC FOUR

The Fantastic Four: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peyton Reed, the man that was to sit in the director's chair for the comic adaptation has stepped out of the project:

Helmer Peyton Reed has fallen out of 20th Century Fox's big-screen comic book adaptation of "Fantastic Four." Reed and Fox, who recently teamed on the Renee Zellweger-Ewan McGregor romantic comedy "Down With Love," are parting ways over "creative differences," according to a studio spokesperson. Reed signed on to develop and direct the project more than two years ago. Despite having no director, Fox is still sticking to a December 2004 release date for the tentpole project, the studio confirmed. Fox executives and the producers, which include Marvel Studios and 1492 Pictures, have a shortlist of directors who are under active consideration, sources said.

Fantastic Four was released July 8th, 2005.
