It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything definite regarding “Ant-Man,” the planned live-action film featuring Marvel’s size-changing, insect-controlling hero. Tagged to be co-written and directed by “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” filmmaker Edgar Wright, the film is intended to put the spotlight on Hank Pym, one of the founding members of The Avengers, as well as his successor, burglar-turned-hero Scott Lang.
When MTV News spoke to Wright recently about putting the final touches on “Scott Pilgrim,” the comic book movie that’s currently occupying all his time, he offered an update of sorts on the “Ant-Man” front, too.
“Once I finish [’Scott Pilgrim’] and collapse for at least a month, I’m going to get back into writing it,” he said. “I wrote a draft before ’Scott Pilgrim’ and my second draft is very much overdue to Marvel.”
Previously, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige announced that “Ant-Man” would follow “Avengers” in Marvel’s movie timetable. He expected prep for the film to begin at the end of the year, once Wright had fulfilled his “Scott Pilgrim” commitments.
“It’s something that I’ve written and they very much liked the first draft that we did, me and Joe Cornish, so we’re excited to get back into it again,” said Wright.
