Yesterday, an unconfirmed rumor surfaced that claimed Fantastic Four director Josh Trank was replaced by Matthew Vaughn, and the studio is cancelling the 3D release of the movie. Shortly after this story surfaced, Josh Trank took to his Twitter page to confirm that these rumors he was replaced on the reshoots were not true. Here's what the filmmaker had to say below.
"Hey Josh, not true. While MV has been very supportive, he's never been to our set. There's only been 1 director of FF2015. Me. I haven't even met MV in person, and there were no such test screenings."
The director didn't directly address the rumors that Fantastic Four will not be released in 3D, we'll have to wait and see if that turns out to be true or not. There have been rumors swirling that there was plenty of friction between Josh Trank and 20th Century Fox, which some have speculated could be the reason why he suddenly backed out of Disney's Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett Movie, but we don't know for sure if that is the case. While we wait for more details on Fantastic Four's August 7 release, take a look at director Josh Trank's tweets below.
