Simon Pegg Weighs In On Edgar Wright's ANT-MAN Exit

The English actor and frequent Edgar Wright-collaborator has previously shared his thoughts via Twitter, but now actor Simon Pegg discusses the fiasco surrounding Ant-Man during a video interview.



"I Feel lucky that I got to read Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s Ant-Man script," Simon Pegg posted to Twitter earlier this week, following Marvel's announcement that Peyton Reed would take over Ant-Man directing duties. "Daring, fun, funny, and hugely exciting; shame we won't see it," he added. During a recent video interview with Sky Movies, the English actor further expressed his thoughts on Marvel and Wright's unexpected departure. "I think it’s a terrible shame," he said (via HeyUGuys). "I get why perhaps it’s happened. Maybe they want a particular thing in line with a particular other thing, but if you hire a director who has a particular vision, you’ve got to expect him or her to make a such and such film. An Edgar Wright film. That’s what that script was and it was interesting. The characters had a real journey. I can’t really say too much about it because obviously it’s not my thing, but it’s their loss." What do you think?

Anyhow, with Peyton Reed directing, Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson, and will release July 17, 2015.
