After what is being called a difference in vision, director Edgar Wright has decided to depart from the new action film, Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd.
Both Wright and Marvel Studios announced on Friday that they have “amicably” decided to part ways. Creative differences seemed to be getting in the way of the partnership and sparked the decision.
According to Marvel, the release date will still be July 17, 2015.
The director is most known for his work on movies like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The World’s End. He also co-wrote the screenplay for Ant-Man and signed on to the project eight years ago. It must have been a really tough decision to make after investing so much time in the project but Marvel said in a statement that, “a new director will be announced shortly.”
Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas both star in the film that is said to be “Phase 3” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Edgar Wright fans may not be watching, but will you?
