Putting an end to the rumor that he has been attached to 'Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer' spin-off, director Alex Proya nixed the speculation.
Contrary to the previous rumor, the "I, Robot" director Alex Proya is not attached to "Silver Surfer", the possible spin-off of "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer". The denial has been offered by the 44-year-old filmmaker himself when he is attending the presentation of Summit Entertainment's "Knowing".
On the occasion held at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con, the Australian film director insisted that the earlier report is just a mere rumor. "Unfortunately that is just a rumor. I don't know where that came from," he explained. "I do like Silver Surfer, but I'm not going to be doing it."
Meanwhile, on the matter of "Silver Surfer" itself, the movie is said to already have its script. Written by the "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski, the plot reportedly will take off after the end of "Rise of The Silver Surfer" and will expose the story of the Silver Surfer himself. Nevertheless, up to date, it is still uncertain whether this spin-off film will be brought to the big screen.
