The Fantastic Four reboot flopped this weekend, in part from the many bad reviews and perhaps in part from director Josh Trank shouting “FLAME ON!” at every bridge Fox has. Now Entertainment Weekly has put together an extensive postmortem with insider gossip from several anonymous sources. The entire article is fascinating, but we’ll try to summarize the main takeaways.
After Josh Trank vacated the director’s chair for a Star Wars spin-off, he said he did so voluntarily because it wasn’t healthy for him. EW claims, via multiple sources, he was fired by Lucasfilm after they investigated the rumors about difficulties on the set of Fantastic Four.
