Ant-Man movie creeps ever closer

June 29th, 2012 by bash Comments

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that Edgar Wright has completed work on a test reel designed to help get an Ant-Man film green lit.

The Shaun of the Dead director has been attached to the project for quite a while after reports that he and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) had begun drafting a script just a few years back.

At around the time these rumours first circulated, Wright told SuperHeroHype: “The idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both… 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.”

It’ll be interesting to see if this goes ahead given Ant-Man’s close association with The Avengers, and especially given that particular film’s success at the box office.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
