New Writing Duo Attached To Marvel’s ANT-MAN Script

July 8, 20140 Comments

Screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari are being eyed to rewrite Marvel Studios’ ANT-MAN for new director Peyton Reed (Yes Man). Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) was originally attached to direct, but dropped out due to creative differences with the script. Shortly after Wright’s departure, Adam McKay (Step Brothers, Anchorman) did a draft.

Barrer and Ferrari worked on the upcoming, modern retelling of Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Their other writing credits include Leave and the horror film Haunt.

Even more writers being brought on is troubling news. Ever since Wright dropped out of the picture, my interest has lessened. However, Marvel has a pretty good track record so far, therefore I don’t think they’ll start shooting until they have a script that everyone is happy with. Hopefully Phase Three starts off with a bang instead of a dud.

Synopsis: Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas and will hit theaters on July 17th, 2015.
