Edgar Wright Is Getting Over His ‘Ant-Man’ Breakup With A Movie About Giant Horny Insects

Bugs are only interested in two things. 

Edgar Wright may have just had a nasty split with Marvel, but just because he and Ant-Man are no longer an item doesn’t mean he isn’t still interested in making buggy movies, in fact one of his upcoming movies is going to be called Grasshopper Jungle.

Grasshopper Jungle will be based on the YA novel of the same name — here’s the book’s official description…

“In the small town of Ealing, Iowa, Austin and his best friend, Robby, have accidentally unleashed an unstoppable army. An army of horny, hungry, six-foot-tall praying mantises that only want to do two things.

Funny, intense, complex, and brave, Grasshopper Jungle brilliantly weaves together everything from testicle-dissolving genetically modified corn to the struggles of recession-era, small-town America in this groundbreaking coming-of-age stunner.”

Horny, six-foot-tall praying mantises. YA novels became Amazon Kindle monsterotica so gradually I barely even noticed.

Grasshopper Jungle is being written by Scott Rosenberg (Con Air and some other, lesser masterpieces) and will be Wright’s next movie after the mysterious Baby Driver. So, who’s looking forward to an Edgar Wright coming of age story where everyone’s, apparently, f*cked to death by giant grasshoppers? I’m on board.
