Well this is just stupid on so many levels
They tried making Rise of Silver Surfer more kid friendly by letting it have PG rating and that did more harm.
Live action kids movies are not big money makers especially ones like this one which will require a moderately large budget.
Nobody wants this at all if anything this going to get fans even more riled up, I'd more than willing to boycott all Fox movies in the future until they drop their pettiness.
After the loss they took with the last one, that I don't think anyone wanted, I thought they'd give up. But this rumor sounds like they just want to make something tonally the opposite of the last one.
I don't have a problem really with something FF being done from the perspective of the kids to some degree. I always thought Franklin's adventures, like what his old all-ages comics were centered around, would be fun stories for animation, etc. The stories require an established FF though, and no one would be interested in what the kids of the FF are doing if they aren't already interested in the FF and Fox has never helped anyone become interested in the FF. Right now I have no faith in them getting it. I'd think they could try on tv but FF adventures require motion picture dollars.

I honestly assumed it would finally be handled by an animation studio since The Incredibles was namedropped. There's not much at the moment to go by, so I just put this in the live-action forum for now.
Fox just needs to give it up. I'm not sure what Fantastic 4 is worth to Disney, but it wasting away at Fox is not helping anyone.
It feels like Fox is trying to take the FF in the complete opposite direction they took the last film which I don't think is a sign of confidence in the property on their part, honestly .
I mean, I'd love to see Franklin and Valeria get some love, and the premise sounds like it could be fun, but I just don't think it's something they should go for rather then doing a proper and good Fantastic Four movie .
Sounds like they got the wrong lesson from Fantastic Four 2015....again.
Can the FF just take a break for a while? There doesn't need to be another adaptation this soon, especially when the last one actively hurt the brand.
I don't think they know how to make a good one.
So they're basically making a Power Pack movie. Doesn't Fox have the rights to them as well due to the licensing?
Fingers crossed this never sees the light of day and Fox finally has to hand over the rights back to Marvel due to a lack of a production.
I could have sworn Marvel Studios had Power Pack but it would be interesting if Fox did. They'd be a perfect property for Disney to get their mitts on, ala Big Hero 6.
I was really hoping for the Fantastic Four rights to lapse like the Daredevil rights did before they started production on Fant4stic. I guess I didn't try enough black magic or something. I couldn't predict the movie crashing and burning the way it did though. Josh Trank seems to be the person that took most of the hit that time.

There's a silver lining to this. It means Fox realized that the world does not need a fourth live-action Fantastic Four origin story.
Marvel Studios talked about Power Pack getting an adaptation back in 2010, so I assume they have it: http://www.chud.com/23473/exclusive-marvels-exciting-small-movie-plans/
You forgot the goat, didn't you?
So... guess this still continues to be relevant.
Again FOX needs to at least be in production of a Fantastic Four movie once every seven years or so. Since technically FOX was like supposedly weeks away from losing the FF in 2014 before they put the Josh Trank film quickly into production. So that means this has until... 2022 to go into production before FOX offiically loses the right. And yeah hard to say if this is true or not but we have heard from executives of them still wanting to make a Fantastic Four movie and it seems obvious FOX is taking every failure with the FF and going the exact opposite direction even if that still doesn't work.
As for why they don't give the rights back to Marvel I think they still feel the group is more profitable with them then not. Like someone must think eventually they'll make enough of a profit to justify not just giving back the rights even though it won't be with ideas like this. Whether this is live action or animated it's obviously this will be irrevelant when there's stuff like Incredibles 2 and the Animated Miles Moralies Spider Man movie in addition to likely other kid aimed for animated super hero flicks. You're not really going to sell this movie against other stiff compettition especially with such a faulty brand as the FF have been cinematic wise.
Like others have said...this basically sounds like a Power Pack film.
I mean...I dunno. I find myself shrugging helplessly right now. I'm tired of FOX trying (and failing) to adapt the Fantastic Four.
I see they are trying this now, quite honestly this effort is just going to be another effort nothing worse or better at this point, I think they are still in the same spot that the last movie is in and for their sake maybe it is a step up at least .
Guys, even those other movies are made for kids. Even if almost everyone will think they are not, they are mostly made to sell toys to kids. Putting adult stuff into them gives it a "coolness factor" for kids, and makes sure the movie stays popular. (For example, you won't find Green Lantern toys anymore, because it was a flop amongst adults, so children don't know anymore that it exists )
I remember Iron Man 4 was dubbed into Belgian Dutch here in theaters. I remember seeing the trailer and everyone was laughing their ass off xD Pirates of the Carribbean 4 (I think?) was also dubbed into Belgian Dutch.
Dubs are considered for children who can't read, so yeah. These movies are meant to sell toys.
(The subtitled versions were obviously watched a lot more than the dubbed version)
Please tell me this isn't real.
The thing is, they (Fox) can't sell toys for a Fantastic Four movie. Marvel has the rights to the brand outside of movies and they have zero interest in doing anything to help Fox make money (which would only exist in added ticket sales, again due to Marvel owning all merch rights), so if they made this terrible-sounding movie, there would be no added money to be made, making the entire thing rather foolish.
The funny part is I could've sworn someone had this in mind in discussion of the last one.
