Edgar Wright mysteriously left Ant-Man at the last minute, merely a week before filming was set to begin! Now, The Hollywood Reporter is naming the reason why he would leave so close to the initial filming: last minute script re-writes a week before filming... without his consultation! Yeah, we get it Edgar!
Here's what Comicbook.com had to say about it:
Wright had reportedly been open to rewrites previously, but always with his own input considered. The most recent rewrites to the script that he co-wrote with Joe Cornish were apparently done without his input and gutted most of his vision and style from the film, leading to Wright’s abrupt departure.
Fortunately, Paul Rudd's representatives are reporting that he is indeed still going to play the part of Scott Lang's version of Ant-Man, and though reports for the rest of the cast are unclear, it's likely that they will continue on just the same as well.
According to THR's same sources, Marvel Studios is diligently in search for a director, and the major directive crew will be replaced shortly. Perhaps this is to suggest that they intend to begin filming immediately following the hiring of the crew, as any film schedule setbacks could result in rushed, poor-quality film and/or major release date push-backs.
Could this already risky film be jeopardizing too much for Marvel Studios to want to do it now?!
Let us know what you think about this film business madness and if it'll keep you from seeing [Ant-Man](movie:9048) or not!
