Peyton Reed Emerges As Frontrunner To Replace Edgar Wright On ANT-MAN
The Break-Up, Yes Man, and New Girl director Peyton Reed is now said to be the frontrunner to replace Edgar Wright (The World's End) on Ant-Man, and with two $200+ million grossing movies under his belt, he may just be exactly what Marvel want. Check it out!
The Wrap reveals that Peyton Reed (Down With Love) is the new frontrunner to helm Ant-Man for Marvel Studios. This is the first time his name has emerged after they seemingly failed numerous times to find someone willing to take over from Edgar Wright after he departed the project over creative differences. The fact that the site names him as a frontrunner could mean that he's now likely to be confirmed sooner rather than later, especially as Disney still want to make that July 17th, 2015 release date. While Wright has never had a commercial hit, Reed helmed The Break-Up, which grossed more than $200 million worldwide, and Yes Man, which grossed $223 million worldwide. How would you guys feel about Reed directing Ant-Man for Marvel?
Update: THR reports David Wain ("Role Models") is in contention too.
