Max Landis, writer of Chronicle (with Fantastic Four Director Josh Trank), released the first four pages of his Fantastic Four script that he wrote a few years ago.
Max Landis has had my heart ever since his 16 minutes on why the Death and Return of Superman is so ridiculous. Now, I dunno how the rest of this script looked, but this is one hell of an opener. You've got an unnecessary amount of cops yelling at some kids in a barn with a mysterious blue light. While Johnny Storm is being a loudmouthed dick to anyone who will listen to him. The drama of watching the Car-Ship fall from the sky before LAUNCHING itself into space would have been awesome to see, and these four pages of dialogue-light action would have gotten my ass in the chair.
What do you think of these pages? Is this a direction you would have liked to have seen? Loudmouthed kids who were actively looking to cause trouble? Or did you prefer the darker more serious tone of Josh Trank's FF?
