ANT-MAN: Edgar Wright Is No Longer The Director
This is terrible, terrible news.
Edgar Wright won't direct Ant-Man after all. While he had put together an amazing cast for his big Marvel film, including Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, he is now out of the project due to creative differences with the studio. A statement was released (via The Hollywood Reporter), confirming that Ant-Man will still be released on July 17, 2015, but from now on it will not be an Edgar Wright film.
"Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly."
Who do you think will be this new director? Are you still interested in the project? Feel free to comment.
