We're the Millers Director Also Passes On Ant-Man Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.04.2014
Marvel can't catch a break with the film...
This Is Infamous reports that director Rawson Thurber (We're The Millers, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) has passed on Marvel's Ant-Man. Thurber was the next choice for Marvel to replace Edgar Wright after Adam McKay (Anchorman) also dropped out. McKay seemed to have briefly accepted the job but later cited a busy schedule as his reason for not being able to commit.
McKay and Thurber were considered along with Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland). It remains to be seen if Fleischer is offered the job, but he has recently been linked to Ghostbusters 3 (as we previously reported).
Marvel still wants the film to be completed for a July 17, 2015 release date, but time is running out.
