Deadline reports that Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) will serve as producer on the film.

Trank directed “Chronicle” and will be working with a script by Jeremy Slater.

Comic creator Mark Millar raved about the script saying, “What I wasn’t expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen – I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know?”

“The Fantastic Four” will come to theaters March 6, 2015.
