After some weeks since the departure of Edgar Wright as director for Ant-Man, Marvel Studios has found its replacement in Yes Man movie director Peyton Reed, who will be joining scriptwriter Adam McKay in developing the live-action film adaptation of the size-changing superhero.
Wright, who was developing Ant-Man since 2006, left the project late last May due to creative differences in the direction and script for the film. Since then, Marvel has been looking for a replacement, which they finally did in Reed and McKay handling writing duties.
The film will still aim for its July 2015 release date, and will still star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/ Ant-Man and Michael Douglas as Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym, creator of the technology that gives the hero his size changing abilities.
