Deadline is reporting that Marvel Studios has now found its writers for its new Fantastic Four film. Jeff Kaplan–not to be confused with formerly of Blizzard Jeff Kaplan–and Ian Springer are heading to the Baxter Building as they’re set to write the script for the highly-anticipated film.
Deadline’s sources added the fact that Kaplan and Springer have been involved with the film for some time, even before Matt Shakman was signed on as director. Even more, the duo has been helping outline where this next series of films will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
The news of Shakman signing on as director was broken by Deadline before it was confirmed at this year’s D23 Expo. Kaplan and Springer are still somewhat newcomers to the industry with the team mainly known for the indie comedy Bert and Arnie’s Guide to Friendship from 2013.
