Wright on Ant-Man, etc.

Perhaps Edgar Wright has been spending too much time with chum Quentin Tarantino -- he seems to have picked up the habit of discussing upcoming projects more than making them. Or maybe SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ were just so good that we want him to hurry up.

While it looks like SCOTT PILGRIM will definitely be his next project to roll before cameras (Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are already attached to star), he's still got his version of Marvel's ANT-MAN in the works. "I wrote the first draft of the script which, to be honest, kind of took two years to deliver because I did HOT FUZZ in the middle of it," he says. "But I did my first draft of it just before the strike last year and I think it's one of my favorite things I've ever written."

He also says that Marvel is happy with his draft, and that he's doing something cool with the premise: "Rather than it being something that's a terrible thing to happen, it's actually making your character into the most bad ass sort of action hero/spy possible."

Wright also discusses the inimitable SPACED, plans for the "Blood and Ice Cream" trilogy, and more details about SCOTT PILGRIM, which you can read RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Edgar is on my top 10 list of "filmmakers I'd like to see cloned so we'd get more of their movies".
