Learnt from this article they've tried a bunch of times to reboot already. Is this a cynical effort to keep the rights from reverting to Moore & O'Neill?

Dunno, but the way these things usually work is that if they haven't actually released a film within 2/5/10 years* then the rights will revert.  This includes very low budget productions which are 'released' in name only.

* whatever's on the contract

For example, the 1984 Fantastic Four film.

Yeah that's what I meant. Looks like the TV pilot was 2013, ten years after the first film. It was described as a 'put pilot' in the article I saw meaning Fox fits the bill if it never airs. Sounds pretty much in line with the Corman FF.

Was LOEG creator-owned or would the rights revert to the publisher?

For example, the 1984 Fantastic Four film.

I actually like this - the budget/effects are shit, but it's better than some of the later ones

Pitch Meeting...

Producer: This Hyde character is great - what does he do next?
Screenwriter #1: He bugger's the invisible man to death in a fit of calculated revenge.
Producer: Next!

LoEG has moved publishers a couple of times, hasn’t it? That would suggest it’s creator-owned.
