Seems that Fantastic Four reboot and Venom movie won’t be next for young newcomer director . . .
Flavor of the month is Josh Trank whose Hollywood debut movie Chronicle grossed $116 million – not bad for a movie made for $12 million . . .
Rumors had it that Trank’s next project was either going to be a Venom standalone movie or the planned Fantastic Four reboot, but now reports have it that Warners has signed him on for a movie adaptation of The Red Star, a lesser-known graphic novel about an alternate universe Russia still ruled by the Soviets in which magic is also real.
With talk of the comics featuring “gigantic flying warships up to three kilometers long” one can only assume that this project is going to be much more ambitious – and expensive! – than the young director’s debut feature!
Actually it sounds like the ideal project for Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov who is actually Russian you know . . .
