Edgar Wright talks Ant-Man

Says the film will not shoot in London

Edgar Wright has been talking about his upcoming Ant-Man adaptation, and has revealed that the film will not shoot at Pinewood, due to the venerable studio being completely booked up!

“Ironically, Ant-Man was meant to shoot in London,” says Wright to Screen Daily, “but London is full because I guess that Pinewood extension got turned down.

“While the tax break is good for Hollywood films shooting here, it’s probably not that great for British films shooting in the UK. Some middle-to-low budget films are going to find themselves without crew because all the American films are shooting here.”

Meanwhile, Wright goes on to explain what kind of tone we can expect from the new film, revealing that he will try to impose as much of his own sensibility on the property as possible.

“I like the challenge of doing something slightly different,” explains Wright to Fandango. “I think there will be some elements of my previous movies in there, and I think that’s why Marvel wanted me to do it in the first place.

“I don’t think they hired me to do something completely anonymous. So it’s fun – it’s got lots of new elements. I’m excited about it.”

Ant-Man will open in the US on 31 July 2015, with a UK date to be confirmed.

      I honestly can't wait for this. Out of all the announced Marvel projects for the next few years, this seems to be my most anticipated. Since the promo reel Wright did to show what he had in mind for it, it's really got me thinking that it can be done... and done well.
