Splash Page catches up with director Edgar Wright to suss out rumors of Pixar-related interest in his ANT-MAN movie.:
“The news that Pixar is involved [with ‘Ant-Man’] is not wholly accurate and a little premature to comment on,” Wright said. “I love Pixar’s work more than anyone and indeed would love to collaborate with them.
“I’m not sure though that they would want to do a ‘shrinking’ film as a Pixar animation—since ‘Toy Story’ and ‘A Bug’s Life’ already cover this territory to some extent,” he continued. “My spin on ‘Ant-Man’ is very different than a straight superhero origin—and very much live action.”
Regardless of Pixar’s attachment or lack thereof, Wright said that he certainly plans to get back into the swing of things with “Ant-Man” as soon as time allows.
Hm, could this have been someone remarking in passing, “Ant-Man? Neat!”
At any rate, Wright, currently wrapping post on SCOTT PILGRIM, is still interested in a light-hearted live-action take on the tiny little superhero and is talking to Kevin Feige about it next week.
