Josh Trank and Miles Teller Nearly Came to Blows on the Set of Fantastic Four
Fantastic Four, which by all accounts could have been amazing (I refuse to say "fantastic"), has been a disaster in pretty much every way, leaving everyone wondering what went wrong. If media reports in the last couple of weeks are any indication, the answer is essentially everything. Between Josh Trank publicly citing studio interference as the problem, and unnamed sources claiming that Trank was withdrawn and difficult, it seems that everything that could have gone wrong did. Now, it seems that we can add conflict between Trank and the actors to that list, as the newest rumors claim that he and star Miles Teller nearly started throwing punches on set.

According to the most recent print edition of EW (via Yahoo!), Teller and Trank did not get along during filming, as Trank was "withdrawn" and Teller was "sarcastic," which didn't make for a good working relationship. Their conflict reportedly escalated until at one point they were "chest to chest, daring each other to throw the first punch." Trank's general demeanor towards the cast and crew was described as "abusive and cold," especially towards Kate Mara, who apparently was the studio's pick for Sue Storm rather than Trank's.

Of course, at its core this is just gossip, and we don't really know what happened on the set of Fantastic Four. There will likely be he said/she said for years to come, and all we can really do is wait for Josh Trank's tell-all. It will still be biased, and we still won't really know what happened, but at the very least it will be a fascinating read.
