Edgar Wright talks Ant Man and World's End

Wright talks current projects...

Our very own Edgar Wright has been talking his future projects with piqmag and we especially like what he's got to say about Ant Man.

Wright said: "I wrote that for Marvel and I’m in the process of doing a second draft. I had a lot of fun writing that script, I wrote it with this guy Joe Cornish, who is a really funny UK writer.

It’s not really an out-and-out comedy. I think some people assume that it must be a spoof, but it’s not really. I guess it’s as funny as something like Iron Man is, it’s on that level of entertainment, really.

It’s a big, high concept, special effects comic book adaptation, and very character-led and we found a way of… I guess in a similar way to Iron Man, the thing that worked with that and hopefully will with this is that it’s a different way of seeing a superhero origin, because you’ve seen so many of them and we really tried to figure out a fresh take on that story. So it’s definitely a Marvel film but it’s got a little twist on it in terms of the way that it plays out."

For more, including loads of Spaced stuff and a bit on the concluding part of his Cornetto Trilogy, head for piqmag.
