There were rumors circulating director Adam McKay (Anchorman franchise) turned down the job of directing Marvel’s rumor-plagued Ant-Man.
Now, Marvel has confirmed that while he will NOT be directing, McKay WILL be helping with the script…and the script is allegedly what Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish left over.
Directorial duties have fallen to Peyton Reed (The Break-Up, Yes Man). Incidentally, Reed was involved with the development of the Fantastic Four series back in the 2000s, but then left in 2003 over creative differences, so…the plot thickens.
