Maybe Peyton Reed should stop taking advice from his own movies. After Edgar Wright, Adam McKay, and Rawson Marshall Thurber all replied thanks but no thanks to Marvel’s Ant-Man, the director of Bring It On and the Jim Carrey far(t)ce, Yes Man, said, well, exactly that.
When Marvel’s Ant-Man hits theaters July 17, 2015, director Peyton Reed will help shepherd the hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a cast led by Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, with writer Adam McKay contributing to the film’s script. (Via)
Compared to what I imagine Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man would look like, Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man is probably going to be safe and boring, unless he does two things: 1) fill the cast with Mr. Show and The Weird Al Show alumni (he directed episodes of both), and 2) make sure there’s at least one extended car wash scene.
