Director Edgar Wright quits Ant-Man movie

6/17/2014

Director Edgar Wright has quit Marvel Studios' Ant-Man movie after falling out with film bosses. The executives and Wright issued a joint statement on Friday (23May14), revealing creative differences were behind the decision. The note reads: "Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly." The film was previously a labour of love for the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director, who initially started developing the project in 2006 and co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Cornish. Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Michael Pena and Evangeline Lilly have been cast as the stars of the movie.
