Holy shit what I need to know more about what happened there.
You forgot the best part; the on-set complaints of Josh Trank regarding F4 being discussed on 4chan's /co/ board, and Josh Trank getting fucking drunk/high on production and posting in one of his own threads trying to defend his actions and failing. I was blessed/autistic enough to be there(pre-movie threads, not the reddit-famous post ones), and it was glorious.*ahem*
Director Josh Trank was the new Hollywood wunderkind after his 2012 film "Chronicle" made over $125 million on a $12 budget (it also launched the careers of Dane DeHaan and Michael B Jordan, who later starred in other films featuring Marvel IPs). So then he was tasked with directing and co-writing the Fantastic Four reboot, despite having no other film directing experience aside from Chronicle.
So the expected happens, and the guy gets high on his own farts, not helped by plans to let him direct an upcoming Star Wars spin-off film. Dude starts going full diva during filming, resulting in the hot mess called Fant4stic. Things like:
Renting a house and letting his dogs trash it
When the home owner complained, Trank trashed it even more
Telling actors when to blink and breathe while filming
Would constantly retreat to a black tent and built a similar tent around the camera so only he could see the footage as it was being filmed.
He isolated himself from everyone when not on set.
Rumour has it that this behaviour was the result of an escalating drug problem,
This was all made worse by a studio that decided to just sit back and let him run the production into the ground because they thought they found the next JJ Abrams.
When the higher ups saw the near finished film, they pushed the release date back twice while extensive reshoots were made.
Then after the movie opened to poor reviews and ticket sales, he blamed the failure on the studio because they "held back his vision" or some crap.
Then Trank got that plum Star Wars gig taken away, and the only thing he's done since is a movie that is still waiting to be released maybe next year.
This continued Chu/Jake romance is probably going to be the best thing he has online. Every female eventually snaps and drops him, but these two failed males not only click properly with one another, they both definitely deserve each other.
