According to The Hollywood Reporter, X-Men: Days Of Future Past co-writer Simon Kinberg has been brought on board Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot to “overhaul the script substantially.”

Kinberg will also serve as a producer, alongside X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn.

That’s a lot of X-Perts on the team now. Perhaps we could be looking at synergy between the brand’s in a very big way, and we’re finally going to see something of Fox’s very own Marvel Phase 1.

Fantastic Four is set for release 6 March 2015. You can buy John Trank’s Chronicle on Blu-ray for £9.75 at Amazon.co.uk.
