Yesterday, Deadline reported some unfortunate casting exits for Marvel’s Ant-Man. Apparently Patrick Wilson, Matt Gerald and Kevin Weisman have all left the film. Wilson left due to a scheduling conflict, possibly because of the movie being held up over former director Edgar Wright’s exit. But the other two, Gerald and Weisman left because rumors have it their characters were omitted from the latest version of the script.
Ant-Man will be directed by Peyton Reed, written by Adam McKay, it is to star (officially so far) Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, along with (unofficially) Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, and Michael Peña. It is currently still scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015. (Source: Deadline)
