A Film Adaptation of Marvel Comics’ Ant-Man May Be Next For Edgar Wright
The director of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead says the film is “in the queue.”
While discussing the UK opening of the full double-feature version of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse, Edgar Wright, who directed a trailer for the film and will be hosting the release, was asked if his next film was going to be the adaptation of Marvel Comics’ Ant-Man that he has reportedly been working on.
"It could be that. I finished the script and I'm having a meeting about it next week, but it depends which comes first in the queue basically. I've been working on two at once, and I'm also about to start developing two more scripts, one of which is with Simon (Pegg). It could be Scott Pilgrim [Scott Prilgrim’s Precious Little Life] is next or it could be Ant Man, we shall see."
Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym, a scientist in the Marvel Universe, discovered “Pym particles,” rare sub-atomic particles that allowed him to alter his size. Pym used his size-changing powers and his ability to communicate and control insects to fight crime as a solo adventurer and as a member of the Avengers.
Ant-Man was tentatively slated for a 2008 release, but may be pused back to 2009 or beyond.
