WATCH: Simon Pegg comments on Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man departure

June 14th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

A few weeks ago, Marvel announced that they would be going their separate ways from director Edgar Wright. Now, Edgar Wright’s frequent collaborator, Simon Pegg went on Sky Movies, and commented on Wright’s surprising departure fron Ant-Man:

“I think it’s a terrible shame. 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 [Laughs].”
