Simon Kinberg over de sequel op Fantastic Four


Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot was geen succes. De film flopte aan de box office en de critici waren er niet over te spreken. Toch is er nog een mogelijkheid voor een sequel. Schrijver en producent Simon Kinberg sprak tijdens een interview over Fantastic Four:

“I was obviously disappointed. I was most disappointed that fans didn’t like it. I care more about them than I do anyone else. But I haven’t done a full deep dive on it. Do I think it was unfairly treated? I don’t know.”

Kinberg sprak tevens over de problemen die de productie van de film plaagde:

“I’ve been on plenty of happy movies that don’t turn out to be very good movies, I’ve been on a lot of unhappy, difficult sets that turn out to be great movies. There was a lot of attention on the process of making that movie. It’s hard, when you’re making a movie, movies are hard to make. It’s just the reality.”

Kinberg hoopt nog op Fantastic Four 2:

“I’m really focused on the next one …We’re figuring out what that movie would be. I do believe there is a great ’Fantastic Four’ movie that we’ve made with that cast. So I’m gonna figure out what that is … I’d like that to happen.”

Mara, een van de hoofdrolspeelsters in Fantastic Four heeft minder hoop:

“[It’s] unlikely that [a sequel] will happen, but I would love to [do one]. I would love to play Sue Storm in a movie that everybody loves. That would be great.”
