    ....


    I'm not sure if this man is actually dead but he sure as hell murdered his career last year when he slammed the studios days before Fantastic Four release and hasn't been linked to another project since.

    Talk about a fall from grace.

    Second-worst movie I'd ever seen after Dragonball: Evolution.

    He should have known better to voice his rants. Hollywood is a very small, elite club and everyone knows everyone else. You gotta play nice if you want to stay in the club.

    Josh Trank is the director of Chronicle (2012) and Fantastic Four (2015).

    Below is a summary of the problems Trank had with the FF project:

    And tbh the new Fantastic 4 wasn't that bad, It was no worse than any of Singers X-Men films.

    The movie is less than a year old. I wouldn't give the last rights on his career just yet.

    He does have a Troy Duffy vibe about him though.

    Just a year and half ago he was in production of a high profile comic book movie with a Star Wars movie lined up afterwards and now he's can't buy his way onto a set.

    Just like Professional Sports Athletes, you can be a douchey clown with shitty behavior as long as you can deliver when it counts. Some stars are eccentric as hell and are practically unbearable to work with.... But

    As soon as the performance slips, you get dropped like a bad habit because people ain't got no time to deal with your shit.
