Josh Trank Set To Ruin A Stand Alone STAR WARS Film

Josh-TrankJosh Trank is going from working on a Marvel Comics property at another studio, to the studio that owns Marvel Comics.

Disney announced today that they have hired the director to helm one of their stand alone, Star Wars spinoff films. No word on which characters Trank will be working with or when the film will be released.

Star Wars fans should be slightly concerned over the hiring. Trank is currently shooting his reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, a reboot rife with selfish casting decisions and potentially damning changes to the mythos. One would assume that Trank will not have as free a hand to mess up the Star Wars franchise, but there’s always a chance that might happen.

It seems that the earliest Trank’s Star Wars film will hit theaters will be in 2017 or 2018, which means that his involvement in the presumptuously scheduled 2017 Fantastic Four sequel has been put in doubt. Of course, there might not be a sequel for him to be involved in, but still.
