Edgar Wright Talks His “Ant-Man” Plans

Filmmaker Edgar Wright (“Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World,” “Hot Fuzz”) talked Box Office Magazine recently about the current state of his film adaptation of the comic “Ant-Man”.

“I haven’t actually started the second draft yet–I’m not going to be able to until this film [Scott Pilgrim] is out–but what we wrote for the first draft, and what Marvel really liked, is that it’s funny, but it’s a genre film. It’s about the level of comedy that Iron Man has” says Wright.

The director adds that the plan is to make a high-concept genre film which takes place in the real world, one that’s “slightly different” than your average superhero origin film.
