In an interesting turn of events Ain’t It Cool News and Variety had reported that Marvel had found their replacement director for ‘Ant-Man’ in Anchorman director Adam McKay. But not too shortly after this was announced The Hollywood Reporter stated that McKay had walked away from the film, simply saying this:
“Negotiations began with McKay in earnest on Friday but the director abruptly decided against directing the film, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The decision is said to be his alone.”
It seems like Marvel is having a tough time getting hold of a director for ‘Ant-Man’, which as of now has not affected the release date of the film.
