Possible Fantastic Four script leaked. Email forwarded to me by mistake
From: Art Foonman, merchandising and product placement dept.
To: Josh Trank, Fantastic Four producer
Josh, the script looks GREAT! A few notes:
1) Action figures. Tell me more about these costumes Sue wears that contains her “powers!” . I’m assuming skin tight, blue, white and black. Need Art ASAP. Confirmed toy art dept is using SPRHRO blue, Pantone 9-286 Heads can wait until casting is complete since they just pop on, just make sure the cast is all white! Remember the scare with a black Spiderman!? HA!
2) The Doombot line of military drones–GENIUS! Killer line of toys! DoD is already on board with rejected designs from the latest war. Lego has ponied up big numbers for licensing. Got one request for a “cute” doombot from Hasbro, think Wall-E with guns. Any chance of a good Doombot? One with big “eyes?”
3) Computer product placement. Sad trombone sound. Hacking into them? What is this 1989? Boring, nobody wants to pay to see their servers hacked. Oracle paid big bucks for Iron Man tie ins but we had to promise Ellison a bit part. Thank god he was a RDJ fan boy, remember the creepy CEO who wanted a love scene with Scarjo for placement? [shutter] Speaking of Zuckerberg, the “N-Zone Machine” has potential. Can we consider renaming it the FriendZone Machine? Put a pin in that idea. He “likes” it.
Have we considered housing the machine in a Sub-Zero refrigerator? On second thought, scratch that, we don’t want another Indian Jones backfire. I said, “What other product is a hot meme and linked to Indiana Jones?” but GE was NOT amused. Never piss off a military contractor that also owns a TV network.
Dave in mobile marketing remembered Microsoft bought Nokia and are coming out with a iPad like device. Microsoft exes are suckers for force fitting product placements. That 400 million Surface deal with the NFL that all the announcers called iPads!? HA! I’ve got a call in to them.
5) Location Placement. Did a convenience store store paid for the tie it? I’m guessing the convenience store plot is because you want Kevin Smith to direct, but if he balks and 7/11 doesn’t pony up enough cash, Target wants a shot, they are still reeling from the computer hack.
