Two Writers Board 'Ant-Man' for a Final Rewrite Before Production
Now that Marvel Studios has hired Yes Man director Peyton Reed to direct Ant-Man after the departure of Edgar Wright, production is looming closer. But before cameras roll, The Other Guys and Anchorman director Adam McKay was hired to do a rewrite in the wake of Wright and Attack the Block scribe Joe Cornish leaving the project after seeing it all the way through development. Supposedly, it was the rewrites from Marvel One-Shot write Eric Pearson that didn't jive with the duo, causing them both to leave. Now two more names will do one more run through to polish the script as well as being the on-set writers. Read on!
Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer have been hired for this final round of rewrites, and they will also be on-set in case the script needs some fixing (this is a common practice). Latino Review has the report on the new gig for the duo, who previously were working on a big screen adaptation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and also the gestating Magic Castle movie. The two writers are also responsible for the 2010 Black Listed script Die in a Gunfight, so they must be pretty skilled on the page. Anyway, we're still worried about how this Marvel film will turn out, but we're certainly hopeful for the best when it arrives July 17th, 2015.
