FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER
Screenwriter Don Payne wants to spin off Norrin Radd, or so he told IF Magazine. "For sure the door is opened for a 'SILVER SURFER' spin-off and I think for sure the franchise leads to a third film. And yes I would love to write another 'FANTASTIC 4' film ... The film touches a little bit about his back-story but it could totally be explored in his own spin off.
