Fantastic Four Sequel in the Works

Fantastic Four ComingSoon.net has an article about an interview with screenwriter Mark Frost in IESB.com. Frost, responsible for "Fantastic Four" and the upcoming "The Greatest Game Ever Played," said that he would love to pen the sequel, and that he is in talks to do so. While the film was roundly trashed by the critic, it was profitable - bringing in $152 million on it's $100 million production costs. To go forward with a sequel for a critically panned film but profitable film is total modus operandi the industry - how else can you explain the fact that they're making a sequel to "Underworld?"

Also take a moment to note the career of Mark Frost. This is another TV producer whose career moved from TV writer, to director to producer to Film writer and director, like Paul Haggis, and Joss Whedon. Frost cut his teeth on the critically acclaimed series "Hill Street Blues," and "Twin Peaks" after starting out writing for "The Six Million Dollar Man." "Fantastic Four" and "The Greatest Game Ever Played" are just the latest successes for this writer in a career that spans 30 years. --Terrence Ryan
