  1. This would be a good movie for Josh Trank to direct he could redeem himself and get rid of the failure from Fantastic Four. He’s talented Chronicle proved that but he was in over his head on F-4 it was too big for him. This is more his style and budget. He deserves another chance especially with a script by Max it would work.
