DOOMED: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN'S THE FANTASTIC FOUR interview w/ Marty Langford



There are 336 names in the end crawl credits of the 1994 film, ‘The Fantastic Four’.  And though owners of the bootleg version of the film may appreciate them, the artists and craftspeople who created the movie have never been properly recognized.
And that’s too bad.

‘The Fantastic Four’ has never been viewed legally by anyone in the world, other than those directly involved in the production. The negative presumably sits, to this day, on some shelf in some facility, both gathering dust and fated to become it.

Today I'm joined by Marty Langford to discuss his film DOOMED: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN'S THE FANTASTIC FOUR.





Doomed is A documentary feature that tells the history of the ill-fated movie version of the Fantastic Four that was executive produced by Roger Corman.

Marty works professionally as a Film Studies faculty member at American International College in Springfield, MA and as a freelance writer/producer/director in the corporate, commercial and independent film world.

Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
