This reboot has been gestating for well over three years. Trank has been attached to the pic since last July. They're not pressed for time.
They have a script and a solid director. All they need to do is assemble the right cast to make this reboot worthwhile. If they begin production next year, they'll have plenty of time for filming and post-production to make the film on time and on budget.
And booking a March 2015 release is a smart move on Fox's part. If they make a good movie, they can strike before Avengers 2
claims everything in its path two months later.
