Peyton Reed takes over for Edgar Wright on ‘Ant-Man’

Edgar Wright’s out, and Peyton Reed is in on Ant-Man.

Following weeks of speculation as to who would take over for the exiting Wright, Marvel has revealed Reed (Bring It On, The Break-Up) would step in.

Adam McKay, who had previously been linked to the gig, will retool the script, suggesting there was an even greater creative divide between writer-director Wright and the studio than originally believed.

Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly are all still attached to the superhero project, still dated for July 2015.
