Peyton Reed to Direct ANT-MAN

By Amirose Eisenbach June 10, 2014

We have all been closely watching the hunt for a new director to take over "Ant-Man" from Edgar Wright. Now it appears the search is finally over. Over the weekend, Marvel announced that they have selected "Yes Man", "The Breakup" and "Bring It On" director Peyton Reed to helm the new superhero film.

Other directors that were being tossed around included Adam McKay, Rawson Marshall Thurber and Ruben Fleischer. It was also revealed that McKay will rework the existing script, that was previously worked on by Wright and Joe Cornish, as well as two new writers enlisted by Kevin Feige and team.

Production is still set to begin on the film next month and will star Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lily, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson.

Reed seems like quite an unconventional choice to helm this Marvel production. Their track record has been incredible lately and given the controversy surrounding Wright's departure, they certainly wouldn't gamble with anyone they didn't feel would do a stellar job. But more importantly, adhere to the plan and larger scheme of the universe that Feige and team have envisioned.

Are you happy with this choice? Let us know in the comments section below!
