What's Edgar Wright doing after Hot Fuzz? Well I just found this on his the Marvel home page...
Writer/director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) will direct, and co-write with writing partner Joe Cornish, the feature film based on cult-favorite Ant Man. Edgar will also co-produce with his Big Talk Productions partner Nira Park.
How excited are we about that then guys, eh?
Here's a character bio for Ant Man.
Dr. Pym was a promising scientist who had just lost his first wife, Maria Trovaya, to the Hungarian Secret Police. One day he discovered a process in which he would manipulate a newly discovered group of subatomic particles through magnetic fields. He dubbed them "Pym Particles" and developed serums that would enable him to shrink and return him to normal size. Pym tested the serums on himself, and had accidentally shrunk himself to the size of an ant and was trapped inside an anthill. Once normal sized, Pym destroyed the serums, thinking that they were too dangerous . He rethought his decision, and recreated the serums and also worked on a cybernetic helmet to enable him to communicate and study ants. Later the government assigned Pym to work on a formula to help provide immunity to low-level radiation. It was then that several Soviet KGB Agents broke in, attempting to kill Pym and destroy his work. Pym donned the cybernetic helmet and newly designed protective suit, shrank himself, and escaped outside, to the anthill. There, he gained control of the ants, and attacked the agents and freed his assistants.
18th Apr 05 This scene is fantastic and it made what was already a cool-as-fuck film even cooler. Charlie sees the giant spawn (huge, slimy toothsome puppet-beast) and he works out that the spawns’ primary sense is based on what they hear.
