Is “Chronicle” Director Josh Trask in Line To Direct “X-Men” Sequel?

Already mentioned as a possibility to helm a reboot of the “Fantastic Four,” reports are surfacing that the suits at Fox are eyeing up “Chronicle” director Josh Trask for the sequel to last year’s “X-Men: First Class.”

ComicBookMovie has a chunk of a Q&A conducted with Brit film site HeyUGuys:

“If there was a US version of Akira, Chronicle would be it ­– would you make one?

Josh Trank: After Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead, I stopped judging remakes. Who knows?

Will you be doing Fantastic Four or X-Men?

Josh Trank: It’s a little weird, as I knew this movie would work, but it’s been surprising how everyone’s responded. I have been working on some original ideas and things are being talking about, but nothing’s a signed deal yet.

Who’s your favourite comic-book character?

Josh Trank: Batman – Frank Miller is my favourite writer as I grew up with the Tim Burton Batman.
