Peyton Reed Calls Unfinished Ant-man Script "Terrific"

6 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Peyton Reed is in an unenviable position. He is set to direct Ant-Man, a movie that is already two months behind schedule, doesn’t have a finished script, was originally the brain-child of a beloved geek director, and has some fans actively rooting for it to fail. He definitely has an uphill climb. At the same time, he starts production on a Marvel movie in about three weeks, so he has to be at least a little stoked.

In an interview on the press line at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, Reed gave reporters an update on where the project stands. “We’ve been prepping like crazy,” he said. They are doing costume tests and hair and makeup tests and still trying to finish that script. “We’re still making some script changes, but the script is terrific.” He went on to explain what Adam McKay (who reportedly refused the »

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has announced Emmy- and Oscar-winning actress Jessica Lange as the recipient of this year's Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film. The honor will be presented at a black-tie Gala dinner at Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara on Nov. 16, an event which serves as an annual fundraiser for Sbiff. "Jessica Lange possesses the three key elements in making it in this crazy business: talent, beauty and intelligence, all of which have served her well and continue to do so," Kirk Douglas said. "It is my honor to give her my reward. Recent recipients of the honor include Forest Whitaker, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, Ed Harris and John Travolta. Lange received her sixth Emmy nomination to date this month, for her work in FX's "American Horror Story." She won Oscars for her performances in 1982's "Tootsie" and 1994's "Blue Sky. »

Peyton Reed talks about Ant-Man, confirms script isn’t finished

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Perhaps one of the most shocking tidbits of the troubled Ant-Man from last weekend’s Comic-Con (read the footage report here) was that the script still wasn’t ready. But its new director Peyton Reed (Yes Man) is still very optimisitc about the project since taking over from fan-favourite Edgar Wright (The World’s End).

In an interview with Collider Reed confirmed the script wasn’t ready but production was moving forward, “We’re obviously deep into preparation and still making some script changes, but the script is terrific”.

When asked about making an Ant-Man movie that will fit comfortably in the Marvel Universe, Reed said, “It just feels like that’s what they do as movies. It reflects what they did in the comics. I always loved as a kid reading Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four would show up … it was all about that larger universe”.

Ant-man Director Peyton Reed On Adam McKay's Script, Humor, 'Yellowjacket' And More

29 July 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the following video interview, Peyton Reed praises Ant-Man's "terrific" script (which is still being worked on) before going on to discuss the relationship between Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), as well as the potential challenges of making the character a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The director also comments on Yellowjacket being in the movie, before teasing the appearance of other bad guys by stating that it , "depends on how you define 'villain'". Finally, he promises that Adam McKay is bringing a lot to the movie's script, including plenty of Easter Eggs as he's a huge Marvel fan. As for humour, it sounds as if Ant-Man will be similar to most of the other Marvel Studios in that respect. Check out the interview below and then be sure to share your thoughts on these comments in the usual place! Click on the image »

Ant-man Director Peyton Reed Talks Stepping Into Edgar Wright’s Shoes, the State of the Script and the Film’s Villains at Comic-Con

29 July 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Director Peyton Reed, known for his fantastic work in Bring it On and Down With Love, was most certainly facing an uphill battle this past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con. After all, he’s not just the new director on Ant-Man, he’s replacing geek-beloved auteur Edgar Wright on the project.  It takes a confident hand to introduce yourself as the guy who replaced Wright at this kind of convention, but I'm confident Reed will turn in a good movie (however different it may be than Wright's take). But life moves on and Ant-Man is marching forward (as ants do) with cast members Paul RuddMichael DouglasCorey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly still in place.  Steve caught up with Reed at Sdcc right after the film’s panel and was able to spend a few minutes with him getting a status report on the project.  Topics include the state of the script, »

28 July 2014 11:53 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Michael Douglas is once again opening up about his battle with cancer.

Speaking in front of 3,000 doctors at the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies' 5th World Congress event in NYC Sunday, the 69-year-old actor got candid while talking about being misdiagnosed three times before his 2010 throat cancer diagnosis. "Generally when I'm on a stage at a prestige event like this I'm accepting some kind of an award," Douglas said from the stage.

"As long as nobody tells me to bend over and touch my toes and cough we're all going to be just fine," he added. "In all seriousness, and in every sense of the word, I'm very fortunate to be here today."

"I'm very happy to be here this morning with my husband," Douglas' wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, later said. "I mean that literally. I'm very happy to be here with my husband."

Paul Rudd Opens Up About Edgar Wright’s Exit From Ant-Man

28 July 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paul Rudd is usually all smiles, but he was a little more solemn during the Comic-Con press junket this weekend, especially when the topic shifted to the departure of his Ant-Man director, Edgar Wright. Speaking to reporters from iGN after the Marvel Panel on Saturday night – one that did not live up to fans’ lofty expectations – Rudd revealed that he deeply misses his old collaborator.

“It was pretty bumpy, for sure. I’m really sad about it,” he said about Wright’s walking away from a project that had been in development for years. “Edgar’s brilliant and Edgar brought me on. Edgar’s my friend. I still talk to Edgar just about every day almost.”

However, despite the Shaun of the Dead director’s absence, Rudd remained optimistic about the road the film is currently on. It helped that his Anchorman director, Adam McKay, joined the project as a »

Marvel Confirms Evangeline Lilly as Hope Pym in 'Ant-Man'

28 July 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There was some confusion at the Marvel Hall H panel this weekend, when the studio presented their Ant-Man test footage. Studio president and producer Kevin Feige announced that Evangeline Lilly will be playing Hope Van Dyne, which was also stated in their press release. She is actually playing Hope Pym, who eventually turns into a character known as Red Queen in the MC2 Universe. She is the daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, and its unclear why or how Marvel mixed the name up.

Here is the re-issued press release:

Corey Stoll and Evangeline Lilly have found their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the female lead and antagonist, respectively, in Marvel's Ant-Man in theaters July 17, 2015!

Evangeline Lilly will play Hope Pym, the daughter of Hank Pym, while Corey Stoll will play Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket, the antagonist of the film. The two join stars »

Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll’s Roles in Marvel’s Ant-Man Finally Revealed

28 July 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

They may have lost Edgar Wright, but Marvel Studios are moving full steam ahead with Ant-Man under the watchful eyes of new writer Adam McKay (Anchorman) and director Peyton Reed (Yes Man).

Following their panel on Saturday night at Comic-Con, Marvel officially announced which characters Lost star Evangeline Lilly and House of CardsCorey Stoll will be playing in the movie.

Stoll will play Darren Cross, but in a major change to his rather forgettable comic book counterpart, he will be a villainous version of Ant-Man in this movie. That name was once taken by original Ant-Man Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas here), but Marvel have decided to use the persona for the movie’s main villain.

In another surprise twist, Evangeline Lilly will play Hope Pym, the daughter of Hank and Janet Van Dyne. This is a major change to the comics as Jan is The Wasp in the present day Marvel Universe, »

That gave way to the massive Marvel panel for Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Sadly, Whedon couldn.t »

Marvel came, and Marvel conquered. Hall H was in a frenzy in the moments leading up to the Marvel Comic-Con panel. Fans who had camped out for as much as two days were chanting the studio’s name, doing the wave, and speculating what big announcements would be made. Sadly, there were no new movie titles announced, just a release date for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which is set for July 28th, 2017. Marvel’s focus was on their 2015 releases, which are Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. The Avengers panel didn’t disappoint, and you can watch it in its entirety here and read a description of the footage that was shown here. While the Ant-Man panel didn’t have as much to show since they don’t start filming until August 18th, they had plenty to discuss and even put some footage together to give fans »

Michael Douglas Reveals The Fate Of 'Janet Van Dyne' In Ant-man And More

28 July 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In an interview with EW, Michael Douglas let slip some very interesting details about his role in Ant-Man. As many fans suspected, his wife Janet will be in the movie, but dies in some sort of accident. It's possible that this occurred during one of their first missions fighting crime together, so could this be why Hank Pym has such a low opinion of superheroes? (as we heard in that leaked audio of the test footage) That's all speculation for the time being, but The Wasp will obviously have only a very minor role. "My name is Dr. Henry Pym. I’m an entomologist. I’m also a physicist and I discovered in 1963, a way, a serum to reduce a human being to the size of ant maintaining the strength. Not only that, but I was able to find a way to communicate with the ants. But unfortunately during this process, »
