Despite his best efforts, Silver Surfer couldn't manage to kill off this franchise entirely.
Hey, you remember that Fantastic Four
movie that was nominally OK, which then got followed up by Rise of the Silver Surfer
, a movie famous for the nerdrage it engendered by changing Galactus into a giant cloud? You remember how it came out less than three years ago and didn't do really well at the box office? Well, guess what: Fox is already preparing to reboot it, and AICN is reporting
that there's already a potential title in the works: Fantastic Four Reborn.
No plot details at this point, but hey, it already reminds me of Rob Liefeld's awful Heroes Reborn
and Onslaught Reborn
comics, which...makes me sad. But hey, now that Chris Evans
is Captain America
, I guess they need to recast the whole thing and make them all teenagers and have them fight the Mole Man
Also in the news is that a new Die Hard
might be in the cards, tentatively titled Die Hard 24/7
. That sounds like a movie that ought to be sponsored by a cell phone company or something. "John McClane's never out of contact thanks to the new Microsoft Kin, whether he's at play...or work!" Cut to terrorist getting a text message, checking it, reading "YIPPEE KAY YAY MOTHER*******", and McClane shooting him in the back of the head while he's distracted. Just make it R-rated and I'll be there, ok?
