INTERVIEW: Fantastic Four Director Peyton Reed

Here's an interview with Director Peyton Reed, who is rumored to be doing the Fantastic Four movie...
Are you still attached to the Fantastic Four Movie?

Peyton: I am. We just hired a new writer, Mark Frost, who wrote Twin Peaks. We’re just getting started.

Do you have any notions of bringing the same 60’s throwback style?

Petyon: It’s still in discussion.

There’s a rumor that you wanted to do it like IT’S A HARD DAYS NIGHT, like the Beatles. Where the fans are all around the Fantastic Four but they’re just a family who is arguing at home. Is that right?

Peyton: There was a draft earlier that structurally was like IT’S A HARD DAYS NIGHT. But to me it became to be only about their fame and it didn’t really accomplish… there’s some great stuff in it and there will be some of that aspect to it.

X2 just made $88M this weekend. Does that make it easier now for you to bring the Fantastic Four to the big screen?

Peyton: I’ll mention it. (Laughter) Wow. $88M in 3 days? Wow, that’s amazing. I think that proves that there is a market for that. That can only help.

What’s your interest in it?

Peyton: I’ve just been a huge fan for years. I grew up reading the comics.

But why the Fantastic Four?

Peyton: I like the Fantastic Four really because they’re daytime superheroes in a way and they don’t have secret identities. They’re very much a part of New York City, they’re part of a community. You can run into them on the street and there is that kind of thing, trying to get at the reality of what it would be like to have actual superheroes in the city and setting them up in a pretty realistic environment.
