We recieved reports on Friday that Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers, The Other Guys), Rawson Marshall Thurber (We're The Millers) and Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) were the frontrunners to take over the director's chair for Marvel's Ant-Man from Edgar Wright. Now Ain't It Cool News has learned that Marvel Studios has made an offer to McKay and that he is talks to take the job... UPDATE: Well, this isn't good. Adam McKay was said to be in advanced talks last night, but now The Hollywood Reporter says he has pulled out of the negotiations. http://www.superherohype.com/news/303939-adam-mckay-in-talks-to-direct-marvels-ant-man They keep redoing the script. You know it's bad when even the guy who does Will Ferrell movies doesn't want a part of it.
