Three directors are now in talks with Marvel Studios to replace Edgar Wright in the Ant-Man Movie.
According to reports from IGN, Marvel Studios chose Rawson Thurber (We’re the Millers), Adam McKay (Anchorman), and Ruben Fitcher (Zombieland) to replace Edgar Wright in directing the Ant-Man movie ever since he left the project to due to creative issues and Marvel Studios climed that they were not happy on Wright’s take in the movie.
Certainly Marvel wasted no time finding Wright’s replacement however, it was recently reported that director Adam McKay will not be doing Ant-Man movie.
Variety reports that McKay had “advanced talks” with Marvel Studos cited that they have placed a high priority for comedy chops, and McKay was definitely a good fit but, he’s not even trying.
McKay tweeted his decision to leave the project due to other commitments.
With that being said, Marvel has only Thurber and Fitcher to direct the movie. The question is who will Marvel pick, and will he be committed enough to take on the job?
Ant-Man the movie is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015.
