Not fantastic enough, apparently.

The director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class signs up to produce Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot...

Given that Bryan Singer has said that he's not had a conversation with Fox's new Marvel movie consultant Mark Millar ahead of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, it might just be that the first film to see the influence of Millar's appointment will be Fantastic Four.

The reboot of the Fantastic Four cinematic franchise is due in March 2015, with Chronicle's Josh Trank already on board to direct. And Mark Millar has called in a familiar recruit to lend a helping hand. Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, Millar has announced on his Twitter feed, will be producing the new Fantastic Four movie.

It's still early days for the project, so which direction Millar, Trank and Vaughn will take the film is thus far unclear. There seems to be a far stronger team on Fantastic Four this time around, though. We'll keep you posted on the film...
