At the end of the 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer, the counselors at Camp Firewood agree to meet up ten years down the line. 2011 has come and gone, but if new reports are to be believed, the reunion might only be a few years behind schedule. According to E!, Netflix is moving forward with a Wet Hot American Summer miniseries, with the film's director, David Wain, on board.
A Netflix version of Wet Hot American Summer has been rumored since May, and if E!'s report is to be believed, the project will begin production in January, with Wain and co-writer Michael Showalter returning to pen the script. Wain has already shown off his ability to write and direct compelling content on the Internet; his web series Wainy Days won multiple awards across five seasons.
The big question, though, is whether the original film's cast will reprise their roles in the sequel. »

Ant-Man really does feel like the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel franchise right now. I know it hasn't been forgotten and we'll hear more about it in the not-too-distant future, but right now it has the misfortune of coming off the heels of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it's not considered big enough to kick off Phase Three (which will begin with Captain America: Civil War). That's not to mention the production drama that went down before filming. But that doesn't mean the movie won't be good, and I'm excited to see a film that looks different from anything we've seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Evangeline Lilly is excited too, and she recently commented on the upcoming superhero movie. Hit the jump for what she had to say. Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015, and also stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip "Ti" Harris, David Dastmalchian, »

Evangeline Lilly has been very vocal about her role in Marvel’s Ant-Man in the past; in fact, shortly after Edgar Wright exited the project, the Lord of the Rings actress revealed her hesitation to remain on board following the director’s abrupt departure.
Now, in a recent interview with CNN, Lilly elaborated on her impressions of the Marvel machine before she became involved, all the while teasing some of the heist elements in Peyton Reed’s upcoming superhero flick.
“I’ve been astounded to discover how good to their teams and crew that Marvel are. They’re so collaborative, so smart with their stories. They have rich, dynamic characters which are so much fun to play. I expected I’d be a cog in the wheel of a big machine — I wasn’t sure I’d like this experience. But I’ve been so astounded at how pleasurable the whole experience has been. »

Marvel’s Ant-Man got off to a rough start when original director Edgar Wright, who was working on the project from 2006, left over creative differences. Since his departure Peyton Reed took over and now in an interview with IGN to promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, star Evangeline Lilly has Peyton Reed as the new director:
“He was a delight. He actually in some ways reminded me a bit of Peter [Jackson],” she said “He had a fantastic sense of humour, was extremely immersed in the comic world all his life, is a big fan-boy but also extremely strong in his vision. He knew what he needed, and he knew if we had it or if we didn’t have it, and it’s such a huge luxury as an actor to know that your director really knows what he wants. He knows when he’s got it »

Seven months after it was first announced that Netflix is planning a 10-episode TV series sequel for the 2001 indie comedy Wet Hot American Summer, E! Online reports that the series is now moving forward. Production is scheduled to begin in January, although none of the original cast members from Wet Hot American Summer have been confirmed to return quite yet. David Wain, who made his feature directorial debut with Wet Hot American Summer, is executive producing alongside Michael Showalter, who co-wrote the movie with David Wain, Jonathan Stern, Peter Principato and Howard Bernstein.
Back in June, Michael Showalter revealed they plan on bringing the entire original cast back, which includes Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Michael Ian Black, Zak Orth, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler, Joe Lo Truglio, Elizabeth Banks and Bradley Cooper. Michael Showalter also revealed that the entire 10-episode series will take place on the first day of camp, »
Continuing its swift domination of the world’s collective free time, Netflix is apparently moving ahead with a miniseries that will serve as a follow-up to David Wain’s beloved 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer. E! News reports that the series, which will either be a prequel or a sequel to the original film, is set to begin production this January.
Wet Hot American Summer, though hardly seen at the time of its release, starred a ridiculous number of actors who would go on to become comedy A-listers, including Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks. One would imagine that most or all of the cast members would return for this series, though none of them have yet been confirmed (Netflix also has yet to comment).

Netflix has two bona fide original series hits on its hands with House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, but the streaming service is also very much in the business of “adapting” existing IP. Netflix gave us the fourth season of Arrested Development, it premiered the fourth and final season of The Killing, and it’s also home to the sixth season of The Clone Wars. While it continues to develop its own original programming in-house (including The Wachowski Siblings’ Sense8 and a slate of Marvel shows), it appears that Netflix is set to continue another existing property: Wet Hot American Summer. We heard earlier this year that discussions were taking place to produce a TV series continuation of David Wain’s star-studded 2001 cult comedy, and now word comes that Netflix is indeed moving forward with a sequel miniseries. More after the jump. The folks over at E! »

(Netflix has not yet commented.) So far, none of the original cast has been confirmed to appear. However, during a Reddit Ama two years ago, co-writer David Wain said the original cast would return for the planned sequel. The movie's cast included co-writer Michael Showalter, Poehler, Cooper, Christopher Meloni, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon, Janeane Garofalo, Marguerite Moreau, Michael Ian Black, Ken »

Avengers: Age of Ultron is unquestionably Marvel’s big event next summer but they are also releasing a film that has been a long time in the making: Ant-Man. Originally directed by Edgar Wright, Ant-Man has been the subject of controversy since Wright departed the project and Peyton Reed assumed the director’s mantle. Nonetheless, Marvel has moved with the production of the film and now, it has released an official synopsis. Read it below:
“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym »

With principal photography on Marvel’s Ant-Man coming to an end this week, the post-production work begins. The mammoth task of compiling live-action footage together with the CGI components is but one element of that process. Perhaps the biggest matter for the studio to contend with is audience awareness. Ant-Man is arguably one of their zanier properties, that doesn’t yet carry the same household name weight as The Avengers or Iron Man. To ensure the moviegoing public know exactly who this little guy is come next summer, the marketing machine has fired out the first official synopsis.
Running down the events we can expect to see in the comic book caper, it confirms a slew of cast members who were previously only rumoured to be involved. The most interesting part is the writing credit; which currently says Tbd. After original writer-director Edgar Wright left the project, the script was »

Now that Marvel's Ant-Man has wrapped principal photography and is in the post-production part of its journey, the studio appears to be getting all of its ducks in order in regard to introducing the film to the general public. While the Marvel Studios brand is strong, they still have to sell this movie (one of their weirder titles) to people who have no idea Edgar Wright was ever attached to or fell off of the project and who don't care about what his take may have been like. Hit the jump for the official Ant-Man synopsis and to learn about the smaller character additions that were made during production. While I love Wright and think his take would have been great, I've got to come clean and say that director Peyton Reed is no slouch in his own right. I'm very much still looking forward to July 17th, 2015. Here's the »

Marvel Studios has released some new details for the Peyton Reed-directed Ant-Man film, which wrapped production last week. Those details include an updated plot synopsis and some character info. This information includes four characters that we hadn't heard about being involved with the movie before.
“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.

When Marvel's Ant-Man started production back in August, the studio released a brief synopsis for this Phase Two adventure. The plot rundown was updated slightly last month, changing Paul Rudd's Scott Lang from a "con man" to a "master thief," but didn't offer any new story details. Stitch Kingdom has found yet another updated synopsis for Ant-Man, which doesn't shed any new light on the story, but reveals that Jordi Mollà, who was never previously announced as joining the cast, is playing Castillo. Take a look at the plot rundown below, which also includes character names for Judy Greer, who is playing Scott Lang's ex-wife, T.I. and David Dastmalchian.

Director Joe Wright's movie will now arrive in cinemas on July 24, reports Movieweb.
Earlier today, WB announced that Pan, a film starring Hugh Jackman ("The Wolverine"), will be released in theaters July 24, 2015. That's a week later then it was originally scheduled for, but keeps it from battling Marvel's Ant-Man on July 17, 2015. Pan will now have to open against Sony's Pixels, Fox's Poltergeist remake, and Universal’s next Judd Apatow-comedy, Trainwreck. At the end of the day can you really blame WB for making this move? Many people in 2014 underestimated the power of the Marvel brand, but that soon changed when a film featuring a talking plant and raccoon (Guardians of the Galaxy) dominated the box office. To me, WB made a wise decision. Ant-Man is being directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Pym, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym). From Warner Bros. Pictures comes, “Pan,” a live-action Peter »
While under promotional duties for Annie, Bobby Cannavale talked briefly with Screen Crush about his role as Paxton in Ant-Man. "Well, that was cool," said the actor when asked essentially what made him agree to join the "Phase Two" Marvel adaptation. "And that was, again, another personal situation for me. Paul Rudd and I, you know, he’s one of my best friends—and he’s playing Ant-Man! It’s the weirdest thing in the world. We used to play cards for 50 cents a hand when we had no money at the same time, and here he is playing Ant-Man. He called me up and he’s like, 'Dude, they want you to play this part. You should come out. It’s just me and you in all of the scenes.' It was kind of easy for me to do." Cannavale then confirmed that his Ant-Man character is one »
