Body

5879 We recently learned that Matthew Vaughn has been brought on board the Fantastic Four movie as producer, and now we learn the script is getting worked on as well.

It's reported that Seth Grahame-Smith is polishing the Fantastic Four movie script that was originally done by Jeremy Slater.

Seth Grahame-Smith is known for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as well as Dark Shadows.

THR has it that the new Fantastic Four reboot is described as "taking a grounded superhero and sci-fi approach to the heroes and will tap deep into the comics mythology."

They also go on to note aspects of the comic books, perhaps that will make their way into the movie as well, "which featured not just the better-known villains such as Doctor Doom and Galactus but also alien races the Kree and the Skrull, and the anti-matter universe known as the Negative Zone."

Of course Marvel Cosmic fans know that Annihilus is from the Negative Zone and was recently featured in issues of Fantastic Four as well as the hit event Annihilation back in 2006.

Fantastic Four has a March 6, 2014 release date.
