Josh Trank, director of the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, is off the second spin off film Chronicle. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Trank was fired because of his “erratic” behavior on the Fantastic Four shoot, not to mention the film also required several reshoots.
The first spin off movie, Star Wars: Rogue One, is expected to release in 2016. Starring Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Rogue One will be about a group of rebels who go rogue and try to steal plans for the Death Star.
