Paul Rudd reveals working on the new Marvel 'Ant-Man' movie was an "emotional rollercoaster" after the original director departed.
It has been six month's since Edgar Wright quit working on the Ant-Man
movie, but his departure has made a permanent impact on the film.
Edgar Wright developed Ant-Man
for over a decade with co-writer Joe Cornish and Paull Rudd was cast as Scott Lang, A.k.a. Ant-Man while Wright was still with the project. While Rudd was supportive of the new script and creative team, he said that the director changes was a little depressing.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Paul Pudd revealed that working on the Ant-Man movie was an 'emotional rollercoaster'
It all happened pretty quickly, says Rudd. Edgar called me, and then it was just out in all the trades. It was a bit of a whirlwind, to say the least. Was the actor tempted to follow his friend out the door? Well, I mean, there are lots of things that go through your mind, he says. There are certain things I can and cant do, and then there also certain things I will and wont say. But I was devastated, you know.
After Edgar Wright left, Peyton Reed stepped in to take Edgar Wright's place. The script was rewritten by Paul Rudd and Adam McKay (Anchorman).
The idea, the trajectory, the goal, and the blueprint of it all, is really Edgar and Joe, says the actor. Its their story. We changed some scenes, we added new sequences, we changed some characters, we added new characters. If you took the two scripts and held them up together theyd be very differentbut the idea is all theirs.
