Edgar Wright Gets Back To His ‘Ant-Man’ Script, Plans Something New For Simon Pegg

By  · Published on January 13th, 2011

The greatest thing about the possible Ant-Man movie is that no one on the planet has any idea how anyone could pull it off, but since Edgar Wright is in the creative driver’s seat, that normally debilitating fear vanishes like a superhero who gets so tiny you can’t see him.

Wright told the LA Times that he’s had a casual meeting with Marvel head Kevin Feige, and that he’s sitting down to take another pass at his Ant-Man script with Joe Cornish. The same small-budget elements seem to be in place, and Wright claimed that, “this one’s not about about the urgency of summer tentpoles and things going into production without a script.” Magical golden words for fans that like their spectacle with a little meat to it.

If that script doesn’t keep him busy enough, he has a new idea for a project that will have him partner up with Simon Pegg again. It could very well be the third film of the Cornetto Trilogy that that every single human on earth has been waiting for.
