    Thank God, bring in Del Toro or Francis Lawrence.. Experienced film-makers who can hold their own even while the studio are making demands of them.

    not surprised this happened. I'm pretty sure, but could be wrong, that Kristian Harloff from AMC Jedi Council and Schmoes said once he spoke with some fox people he knows and they were livid with Trank on F4.

    Well, now...who will the replacement be?

    I'm hoping the new director will be 'seasoned'.

    Well this is a bit of a disaster. Either the issue is with LucasFilms, which is bad, or Trank, which is disappointing and still doesn't take LF off the hook. No reason this cant recover, though.

    Anyone think this means maybe a Boba or Han Movie is more likely this one? Where as Rogue One seems connected to the director's vision, this seems like a movie that's already pretty fully laid out and just needs someone to run the helm.

    Like, it seems like Trank was just going to be a "Game Manager" director if I can borrow from the NFL. It'd be wonderful to get in someone with emerging-auteur status that could bring his own style into the game.

    The real disaster would have been if he had actually made the film. Fantastic Four looks godawful.

    im sad and happy at the same time, im happy Trank is off the film, since Fan4Tastic looks terrible, as well as all those rumors about him during filming. and im sad because this could halt the movie and delay it.

    Nah, they have plenty of time and lots of talent who would jump at the chance to direct this film. Edwards's Rogue One is next up in the queue, and I'm sure he's going to nail it.

    Edwards won't be doing the next Anthology movie. No time for that. But there's plenty of time to find someone new.

    I don't want Gavin Hood or Neill Blomkamp

    neither here nor there on Marc Webb.

    I would like Del Toro but they want "young talent" for Anthology films

    Not really a Duncan Jones type project and he's busy with Warcraft anyway

    Colin Trevorrow would be ideal for me I guess but there's the whole Jurassic World issue
