Fantastic Four reboot gets a writer

Despite yesterday's news of Disney looking to buy Marvel, Fox still has control over the Fantastic Four, and the studio is pushing ahead with its reboot.

It has attached Akiva Goldsman - who, despite the Oscar on his shelf and some decent credits to his name is still a worry to most fanboys - as producer to oversee the new movie.

And Michael Green, who writes for Heroes on TV and co-wrote the latest draft of DC's Green Lantern has been hired to write a script for a new version of the Four.

While there's no official word yet on whether it will be a total re-set or whether the thesps behind the other two movies - including Jessica alba, Ioan Gruffudd and Chris Evans - will return to the main roles.

We'd guess that, given the mixed reviews and lower box office of the sequel, the slate may well be wiped clean and we'll be introduced to a brand new Mr Fantastic and his team...
