What next for Edgar Wright?

May 28th, 2014 by Marc Comments

While we’re all still trying to deal with an Edgar Wright-less Ant-man, we have been wondering where he’ll go next because, Ant-man or no, he’s a director we love and can’t wait to see what’s next for him.

And it looks like wheels are already in motion as he eyes up the big-screen reboot of the classic Darren McGavin TV show Kolchak: The Nightstalker. The original series was about an investigative journalist who looked into crimes of a supernatural nature and is prime for the update treatment.

The movie is something that Wright has been developing for a while at Disney with the lead role being laid out for Johnny Depp.

According to Deadline: “The script by D.V. DeVincentis is in strong shape. Of course, much of this depends on the availability of Depp, who’s playing Whitey Bulger in Black Mass right now and is supposed to make another Pirates Of The Caribbean movie either later this year or early next. Sometimes these developments work out for everyone.”

Seems like this could be one to watch as Wright’s sensibilities will play wonderfully on the subject matter…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
