FF is getting made. Whether it's better than the crapfest that Tim Story churned out remains to be seen; but make no mistake: FF is getting made.
Churning out a stinker is something FOX could have gotten away with in the pre Disney days, but would likely lead to very costly legal action at the present time.
I agree, the FF film is getting made. But when it gets made and who makes it - FOX, FOX/Disney or Disney - is very much in doubt.
