Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Has anyone ever made a film without a director?

Just give the script to the actors and tech, then tell them that they'll get paid after they come back with a movie in 2 weeks.

McKay didn't take the job because it wasn't the Wright thing to do.


I'll be here all night, everybody.

Apparently Wright is wrong too.


Thank you very much. I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waiter.

I'm really surprised its taking them this long to find a replacement.
Warners and DC comics have been paying every director in Hollywood to not do Antman.

I'm curious as to which of the Marvel directors you consider A-List, because I don't think any of them are on the same level as Spielberg, Lucas, Coppola, Scorsese, etc..

Is Lucas really an A-list director? He only directs his own movies? He's a slightly less prolific Tarantino in that regard.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Getting to a position where you can self-finance blockbuster movies, and direct nothing but your own movies, is something many directors dream of and very few achieve. Lucas is absolutely an A-list director.

Yeah, but I think the number of movies should be a factor as well. Not that it really matters. Lucas isn't going to direct any more movies, so he's not in any discussion for future A-list directors no matter what.

Although I hear they're looking for an Ant-Man director if he's interested.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

I don't think number of movies matters. It's power in the industry and name recognition with the public that are important. James Cameron isn't prolific at all, but he's very much an A-list director.

At this point, I think the name "Ant-Man" is too embarrassing for any real director to want to get involved with.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

One site - albeit not a particularly well-established one - is claiming a deal is being worked out for Rawson Marshall Thurber to direct as kind of the last man standing after McKay changed his mind and turned it down and with Fleischer hoping to land Ghostbusters 3.

Maybe I haven't been paying close enough attention, but I haven't heard that many complaints from the people involved, and quite a few of them have been coming back for multiple movies, so I don't see the problem.
Three returnees (Favreau, Whedon, and the Russos); three who haven't (Leterrier, Branaugh, and Johnson); and one who probably won't based on his complaints (Alan Taylor). Could be worse, could be much better.

I don't think A-list is quite so exclusive - Branaugh and Favreau are up there, I'd say.

Rawson Marshall Thurber has just passed on directing it.

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansit...news/?a=101244


Wow. Did Edgar Wright just call the runner ups and tell them not to take the director job?

Are they all in on some sort of pact/secret?


Wright- Hey guys, if you get offered Ant-Man say "No" they'll screw you over

He still came back as Happy in Iron Man 3, though. So whatever caused him to drop out of directing (money, timing, not getting The Avengers), there doesn't appear to be any animus there.
