Director Edgar Wright is helming Marvel's miniscule hero, Ant-Man due out July 17th 2015. The film will star Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Michael Pena and Michael Douglas (Henry Pym), the film is scheduled to start shooting in May 2014, in and around Atlanta, Georgia.

In describing his idea for the movie back in 2006 at SDCC Edgar said, "Well, the thing is that what we want to do, the idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both. Is to have a film that basically is about Henry Pym and Scott Lang, so you actually do a prologue where you see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the 60's, in sort of "Tales to Astonish" mode basically, and then the contemporary, sort of flash-forward, is Scott Lang's story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then, in an interesting sort of Machiavellian way, teams up with him. So it's like an interesting thing, like the "Marvel Premiere" one that I read which is Scott Lang's origin, it's very brief like a lot of those origin comics are, and in a way, the details that are skipped through in the panels and the kind of thing we'd spend half an hour on." This was always the plan, Hank and Scott will both portray Ant-Man.
