Everyone knows how bad last year’s Fantastic Four was, but Spielberg hasn’t even heard of its director. Even though Josh Trank was set to direct a Star Wars spinoff prior to all of the Fantastic Four drama, Spielberg acted like he’s never heard of him in a new interview.
As part of the THR interview with Spielberg, he was asked about Josh Trank:
So when you look at young directors, how do you know you’re not hiring another Josh Trank [who directed the Fox bomb Fantastic Four]?
SPIELBERG Who is that?
If you haven’t seen Fantastic Four, it was recently airing on HBO and you may still be able to catch it there. Otherwise, if you’re really a glutton for punishment you may be able to find it cheaply in the discount DVD bin. It’s seriously one of the worst superhero movies ever made.
