Earlier this month on D23, Marvel StudiosKevin Feige confirmed that WandaVision director Matt Shakman will be at the helm Fantastic four, the studio’s take on the team that launched the Marvel universe into the comics. Now there is a word about who will write the script. Writing duo Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer are collaborating on the project, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

They also wrote Rebel Wilson’s comedy K-Pop: Lost in Americawhich is under development. Deadline first reported the news of the duo’s involvement in the Marvel project.

Feige said: Fantastic four, which had three films made at 20th Century Fox before the studio was acquired by Disney, will not be a new original story. “Many people know this origin story. Many people know the basics. How do we go about that and bring something they’ve never seen before?” Feige told THR at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

Fantastic four has a release date of November 8, 2024 and begins with phase 6 of Marvel’s storytelling. No cast has been set, although this is the subject of rampant speculation online.

Writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby introduced the superteam in 1961, which included Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and the tortured Ben Grimm/The Thing.

Kaplan and Springer previously collaborated on the 2013 indie comedy Bert and Arnie’s Guide to Friendship, which Kaplan directed. They are represented by MGMT and Gersh.
