'Fantastic Four' Producer Chris Columbus Directing Robert Kennedy Film


The executive producer of the 'Fantastic Four' movies has acquired the screening right for Thurston Clarke book about Robert Kennedy's campaign and is attached to helm it.

Having scored a deal for the screen rights to the Thurston Clarke book "The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America", filmmaker Chris Columbus is going to take an important part to "Untitled Robert F. Kennedy Project". The 49-year-old will direct the movie project chronicling Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 presidential run.

Aside from taking the director role, the executive producer to the two "Fantastic Four" movies is going to produce the film with his 1492 Prods. partners, Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe. Further, he will tackle the penning of the script. Still, the decision of him writing the screenplay himself or joined by other scribbler depends on his availability.

Being Columbus' first deal since the merging of his 1492 Prods. with India-based Reliance Big Entertainment, "Untitled Robert F. Kennedy Project" is most likely to follow Kennedy's idealistic campaign, which highlighted on poverty, racism and ending the unpopular Vietnam War. On the project, Barnathan commented that Columbus was inspired by Kennedy's fearlessness during the 82 days of his campaign.
