Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish Offer Minor <i>Ant-Man</i> Update: Near Finishing Script!

The signed on director for Marvel Studios' Ant-Man cinematic adaption, Edgar Wright reveals that he & his co-writer Joe Cornish are finishing up the 2nd draft and more. Check it out!

In chatting with The Playlist at the SXSW, Attack The Block director Joe Cornish, & executive producer Edgar Wright offered a slight update on Marvel Studios' long-productive Ant-Man adaption. With Wright directing the film, and Cornish co-writing...

“We’re currently working on it, not right now. But the day after tomorrow we’ll go to Los Angeles and…[nods to Edgar],” Cornish said about the status of the film. “We kinda have a stock response now, it’s true to say we’ve been writing it in some form,” “Weirdly, the treatment for ‘Ant-Man’ exists before Marvel Studios.

There was a treatment that Joe and I did when Artisan had the kind of lower-rung Marvel properties and we wrote a treatment for it that exists before ‘Hot Fuzz.’ Basically, when I met Kevin Feige I said, ‘Oh, did u ever get our ‘Ant-Man’ treatment?’ and he had never read it so we submitted it properly like four years later. So it’s something and me and Joe genuinely been working on for nearly a decade and at some point we’ll finish the script.”

In addition, the site further states that once they meet in L.A., Wright and Cornish will likely polish off a new and/or updated draft, submit it, and then let let things progress. Wright essentially revealed the film would be a high-tech spy heist genre, however, with the astonishing avenger at the story's center.

Something brilliant I've noticed in Marvel's way of developing their films, is utilizing well-known genres, and throwing a superhero in the mix. A perfect example: Thor being somewhat of a Shakespearian drama, Captain America a somewhat period war movie, and The Avengers potentially being an Alien invasion flick. Though maybe unintentional, it's a great approach in developing stories for the many properties in the works: Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Luke Cage among others. What do you think?
