Do Over!

Fantastic Fuckery:
20th Century Fox is the latest studio to start the process of overhauling one of its big Marvel Entertainment franchises, "Fantastic Four," which has already hatched two films. The studio has hired Akiva Goldsman to oversee the re-boot as producer.
Ha ha! Just kidding about those first two! We know they sucked. That was, uh, deliberate! Yeah! PSYCH!!!
The 2005 "Fantastic Four" and 2007 sequel "Rise of the Silver Surfer" were directed by Tim Story, and starred Ioan Gruffud, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis. Since the deals are just getting made, it is unclear at present if any of them will return.
Hey, 20th Century Fox—I have an idea! How about keeping Jessica Alba but hiring a Latino actor to play her brother, instead of sticking her in a blond wig in a truly stupid attempt to erase her ethnicity?

That one's on me.
