Further underlining how sad it is that we won’t see a really quick zoom into a tiny Paul Rudd, editor Jaume Lloret has pieced together all of Edgar Wright’s signature close-ups. The result is wonderful and it makes me want to watch all of Edgar Wright‘s films that aren’t Scott Pilgrim again.

After ending his long-term relationship with Ant-Man, Edgar Wright has sought solace in the familiar arms of a past love. Wright has decided to find home again in Baby Driver, a project that will reunite him with Working Title Films and away from those fart-breathed meanies in the studio system. Details about what the hell it is about are vague with the only description being “a collision of crime, action, music and sound.” So…. in other words, Edgar Wright is making an Edgar Wright movie.

However, it is noted that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will not star in this project. In all fairness, can you really call it an action film if an out of shape guy doesn’t fall over a fence? (Deadline)

The Ant-Man drama has been put to rest, it would seem. A couple weeks after Edgar Wright stepped off the project, HIS project, abruptly, Marvel was scrambling to find a new helmer who could take Wright’s vision and run with it. After knocking on the door of comedy director Adam McKay, who turned the project down, the studio has found their director in Peyton Reed.

Reed doesn’t exactly follow Wright’s cults sensibilities, as he’s been the force behind broader comedies such as The Break-Up, Yes Man, and Bring It On. However, that doesn’t mean he CAN’T do it. Just that he hasn’t done anything similar yet. Also, though Adam McKay backed out due to prior conflicts, he’ll still be hanging around in an uncertain consulting role, so that’s pretty good news.

Edgar Wright’s disappearance from his own labor of love is still a little confusing, though, and any director who isn’t Edgar Wright is going to feel like a compromise on this one.

Edgar Wright, the man behind the cult faves Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, has lef this pet project Ant-Man just a short time before filming was to begin.

The little-known Marvel property had been championed by Wright for years, and garnered more intrigue after it had been announced that Paul Rudd was to play the superhero.

However, due to the catch-all “creative differences,” Wright has walked off, amicably, if a press release is to be believed. The cast is currently set to stay, and while the studio behind the film, Marvel, can find a new director, it’s unlikely they’ll be able to replicate his playful reverence or the cult cache that he brings to the project.

But no doubt they’ll try.

The post Evangeline Lilly In Talks To Play Rashida Jones In ‘Ant-Man’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

In an effort to prove Paul Rudd can appear onscreen without Elizabeth Banks or Rashida Jones, Marvel is in talks to cast LOST’s Evangeline Lilly as the female lead in Ant-Man. The studio won’t comment on exactly who she’ll be playing but have mentioned this would not be a one-off appearance. Speculation is that she’ll play the daughter of Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym and love interest to Rudd who is probably an attractive entomologist or the character who will eventually become The Wasp.

Earlier it was reported that Jones was being looked at for this role. However, it seems that casting did not take shape despite her friendship with Rudd. Maybe he can still get her in there as the voice of a plucky caterpillar or something. (THR)

The news that Paul Rudd was cast as Ant-Man now seems a little premature. Yes, he will star in the film Ant-Man in the role of Ant-Man, however, he won’t be playing the Ant-Man we expected him to play. That role is actually going to Michael Douglas.

For those whose heads aren’t aching by my eleqountly worded introduction, Douglas will play Hank Pym, brilliant scientist/original Ant-Man. Rudd will play Scott Lang, thief who steals the technology and eventually uses it to become a hero. Edgar Wright has said in past interviews that the film will jump between the 1960′s and present day, showing both Pym and Lang as the miniaturized hero. There’s no word who will play the young version of Michael Douglas. Maybe Emilio Estevez is available. (Marvel)

Paul Rudd has proved that we can’t believe a damn word out of his mouth. While promoting Anchorman 2 earlier this week, Paul Rudd denied any knowledge of his being cast as Ant-Man. Now, lo and behold, comes news that Rudd has officially entered talks to star as the Marvel hero.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt was also up for the role of Hank Pym, the scientist who can shrink himself and talk to insects, but denied the rumors almost immediately. With the announcement that he was going to enter our dreams, it was a foregone conclusion that Rudd would take this part. Mostly because our only other short and sarcastic option would be Frankie Muniz. (Variety)

The post Don’t Make Us Choose: Paul Rudd And Joseph Gordon-Levitt Up For ‘Ant-Man’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Just like that old parable from the Bible where a mom is tasked with seeing her baby cut in half, Marvel Studios too has to choose. The studio and Edgar Wright have narrowed their two top choices to play Ant-Man and they’re both pretty likeable guys who never hurt you in anyway. Oof. This one’s going to be tough.

Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are both up for the part, as well as “a remote possibility another actor could emerge” to take the role for less of Marvel’s money. But he’d better be damn likeable.

From the outset, I’ve seen Gordon-Levitt in this role but the idea of Rudd also interests me. Though his alternating sarcasm and mumbling comedy schtick has grown grating in the past five or so years, a cool film like this could be just the jolt he needs to keep it fresh. I’m still on Team JGL but could also be okay with James Franco or Michael Cera in the role. They’ll all be equally hysterical when shrunken down and trapped in some lady’s cleavage. (Variety)

Edagar Wright has long been circling the offbeat comic film Ant-Man, and after getting word that the project will go through, we’re now hearing that the project will be pushed up to summer 2015, putting it against Superman vs. Batman during that same period.

If Ant-Man is going to have as big a budget as one would expect, the move to summer is no surprise, and if it’s going to stay in the style of Wright’s previous Cornetto Trilogy, then there’s little risk of these two films stepping on each other’s toes. Similarly, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming out in May of that year, but that just puts Ant-Man further in the position to be the “alternative” superhero film of that summer.

In case there was some subset of of Edgar Wright fans that weren’t going to see Star Trek Into Darkness anyway (I mean, Simon Pegg‘s already in it!), they will now, armed with the knowledge that Edgar Wright directed a scene.

What scene? A scene on Klingon with Kirk, John Harrison, and Uhuru. None of that means anything to me, but maybe it will to you. Note the conspicuous absence of Mr. Pegg. COULD THERE BE TROUBLE IN PARADISE BETWEEN THE LONGTIME FRIENDS?

Nah. They seem pretty chill.

The film has already opened in Europe, and hits US theaters next week, so you’ll have to writhe around until then to see what all the fuss is about. You can do it. I know you can.

All Simon Pegg wants to do is complete the Golden Mile. The epic pub crawl he and his friends failed to finish decades earlier consists of twelve pubs in the same town, the last of which is “The World’s End.” However, there’s a new obstacle in their way.Frickin’ body snatchers.

With The World’s End, Edgar Wright, Pegg, and Nick Frost complete the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy they began with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz. Up until this point, the plot was tightly under wraps with no mention of skin-walking alien invaders, which now just makes the film all the more awesome. And again with the fences.

We’ll need to wait until October 24th, 2013 to see the final entry in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, but we have to wait zero minutes to see the poster for The World’s End. As with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost are all back together to skewer Hollywood and mundanity in one fell swoop.

In the film, Pegg and Frost join Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan as a group of old friends reuniting for an epic pub crawl. However, they’ve inconveniently scheduled it the same night as armageddon. Check out the poster below and let me know what you think. Seems to me that if it were my last night on Earth, I’d want something a bit tastier than “good” food.

Marvel Studios and director Edgar Wright played a little bit of a prank on the media and fans for Comic-Con this year. In the lead-up to their panel for the upcoming Iron Man 3, director Edgar Wright posted on his Twitter account about being in London and missing Comic-Con, etc. Well it turns out this was all a smokescreen to hide the fact that ahead of the Iron Man 3 panel Marvel Studios was going to show some test footage shot for Ant-Man, with Wright in attendance.

And although there’s no casting news or a release date yet, they showed the shit out of that test footage! It’s about a minute long and showed Ant-Man at ant-size taking out two full-sized henchmen with his incredible shrinking powers. So, with this test footage, plus Marvel’s online announcement that an Ant-Man movie, which we first started hearing about in 2006, is finally coming, and it looks like it’s really happening. Ant-Man Fever: Catch It! That’s mine, not Marvel’s. (The Playlist)

The post Edgar Wright Doing A Little Bit Of Work On ‘Ant-Man’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

With the film being on their production slate since the mid-2000′s, it looks like Marvel’s Ant-Man is inching closer to reality. Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World writer/director Edgar Wright has just finished shooting a test reel for the film. Though this is a far cry from an actual film, it will give Wright a good idea of how to eventually pull off the look and tone of the film which he’s co-written with Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish. These tests will also help establish a way to make Ant-Man‘s powers look convincing on-screen.

There’s also hopes that a Wright-directed Ant-Man clip will be the after-the-credits Easter Egg attached to next year’s Iron Man 3.

With Marvel slated to make a big announcement about their secret film project at Comic-Con, this test reel news only adds to the speculation. However, Latino Review have reported that Guardians of the Galaxy have been chosen for Marvel’s 2014 release. Just last month, the website reported that Black Panther would be the mystery film on Marvel’s slot. Those reports were debunked. So take the Guardians report with a grain of salt. We won’t really know until Comic-Con whether or not Latino Review are correct or once again totally full of beans.

Simon Pegg had dinner with a group of online journalists to promote the August DVD release of Paul. We’ll have more on Paul later, but Pegg shared a few tidbits about his next collaboration with Edgar Wright, The Adventures of Tintin, and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. As for Star Trek 2, he just reiterated what we’ve all been hearing –  that they’re aiming for a fall shoot.

A World’s End

The long awaited end of the trilogy begun with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz might not be a genre movie at all. “One thing Edgar and me have discussed, we’ve been away for a weekend and got things going, is that we’re not going to just do what we’ve done before,” Pegg said. “Even though we want this film to be like Shaun of the Dead times Hot Fuzz, we’re not the genre guys. I think people want to figure us out and they want to know who we are. That’s not it. So we’re not going to do okay, let’s do cowboys next. What Edgar and I are trying to do is fit in some writing time before I start Star Trek.”

The Adventures of Tintin

‘The Adventures of Tintin’ Teaser Has A Whole Mess Of Danger

Trailers for Tintin have come out and most audiences are still confused. It’s motion capture, it’s Belgian, but having played a character in it, Pegg says it’s all quite noticeably a Steven Spielberg movie.

“Yes, because you can feel his DNA in the way that it moves. I’ve seen some of it. Motion capture is more like directing live action because you are dealing with a 3D environment. You’re moving the camera around a 3D environment, but that 3D environment is digital. It’s not real. All the way that the camera moves, it’s Steven and you definitely feel that.”

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Suffice it to stay, Pegg has a bigger part in the sequel to Mission: Impossible III. “I had two days on Mission: Impossible III. That was it. I did seven months on the fourth one so yeah, I go back.”

Rumor has it Jeremy Renner is positioned to take over the franchise from Tom Cruise, but Pegg says it’s ambiguous. “It has been bandied around. Looking at the film as it is, I don’t think so. It’s anyone’s guess really. It certainly sets up a new IMF agent who can return and who is an Ethan level player. We’ll see. I honestly don’t know. It’s one of those things that there’s a lot of life in that story because it is a kind of Bond thing that you can just have iterations of different adventures and different teams and stuff. I can’t say really. I don’t want to give anything away. It’s another Mission: Impossible but it’s an evolution I think. There’s some great character stuff in it. There’s some incredible action.”

On the photos of Tom Cruise scaling the Burj Khalifa in Dubai:

Pegg got an even better view of that stunt. “He leapt out the window of the tallest building in the world and looked back in at all of us, this huge sh*t eating grin on his face. The guy’s a machine. It’s insane. He was like running like a spider along the side of the Burj Khalifa. I’m glad that was seen because I wouldn’t want anyone to watch the movie and not know he did that because he did do that. I was just feeling sick saying that. What are you doing you crazy bastard? Yeah, it’s going to be good.”

Pauls

‘Paul’ Looks Like A Kids Film With Lots Of F-Bombs

Pegg and Nick Frost actually have an idea for a sequel to Paul too. Like that other classic alien franchise, the sequel will just be plural. “Nick and I have this idea that we had out on the way to Area 51 that was really funny. It was like oh, this could be great. It would cost an absolute fucking fortune. If it involved more than on Paul, it would mean that we’d have to have twice that budget again. The idea was it was called Pauls. Again, it was like From Dusk Til Shaun, that title is so good we have to make that film.”

A big motivation for Pegg to do another Paul was he’d like to recreate the experience of traveling the country and working with American comedians in supporting roles. He promises he’ll still write a good script though. “I do have enough principles to stop me doing that just for the sake of it. It would have to be a good idea, but I’ve just been thinking about that recently. You ask yourself why you do what you do. It’s not for the reward. It’s for the experience, not the product.”

Roll With New 'Attack The Block' Trailer Featuring Basement Jaxx

The highly anticipated, low budget alien invasion flick Attack the Block hits US theaters in limited release July 29. With solid buzz from SXSW, Edgar Wright as a producer and Nick Frost as a co-star, many are hoping the film will be a sleeper hit. Sony‘s opening it opposite Cowboys & Aliens, which takes some big, green alien balls. Maybe the cowboys and the street teens will end up working together to fight their common enemy. That’d be nice.

Attack The Block is the directorial debut of Joe Cornish.

Attack the Block was the hot ticket of SXSW. Edgar Wright’s name must have let people know that it’s something special. He produced it for first-time feature director Joe Cornish. A lot of people didn’t even get into the SXSW screenings so they’ll be waiting for it’s theatrical release, which so far is only secure in the UK for May.

Cornish’s film has teen street gangs fending off alien invaders on the streets of London’s hoods. Cornish met some press for breakfast at the Four Seasons in Austin to fill in the people who missed the film, and further excite the new fanboys who discovered it in Austin.

Territory is not just a British thing:

Joe Cornish: The issue of territorialism is a very big thing, especially with these young gangs in the UK and it’s not something I would want to encourage or be frivolous about because it’s a serious thing. One of the messages in the film is that these creatures are extremely territorial and they will kill and be greedy and selfish. They will take their territory. One of the bad things I wanted to express with the monsters is territorialism. Even though it’s never said, hopefully you understand that that’s one of the bad things and that’s kind of stupid. You know kids in the UK and I’m sure everywhere in the world, kill each other over territory in a meaningless way. That’s something I would want to highlight.

The monsters are metaphors for the real street kids:

JC: One of the ideas of the film is kids like that are demonized in the U.K. and they’re called feral and amoral so I wanted to make a monster that, if you took all the words that people call those kids in the press, I wanted to turn them into a monster, set that monster against the kids and bring the humanity out of the kids. It’s just to see the humanity in people really. I don’t think it’s a particularly new message, that there might be good in somebody who maybe has done bad.

But antiheroes are cool:

JC: It’s a trope that has slightly vanished from cinema because people are a bit frightened of antiheroes now. People are very keen to make the protagonist sympathetic in the first act, give him a wife and kids, have the kid be kidnapped. You get that in notes a lot, how is the audience going to invest in it? Some of my favorite films, Snake Plissken, Assault on Precinct 13, you’re not sure where you stand with the protagonist. For me that’s kinda cool. That’s what I wanted to try and do.

Cornish cast real kids with little acting experience:

JC: They’re all 16 and over. A lot of them are from backgrounds not entirely dissimilar to the kids in the story. A lot of them are local to the area where we shot it. In terms of working with them, it was an absolute joy. The arc of the movie is that you start with these masked kids. You don’t know how old they are. You don’t know who they are, what color they are. They’re just bandits. As the story progresses, you unpeel the layers and hopefully give them dimension and stuff. That happened a little on the set as well. You could see the talent but they were socially a bit shy. They wouldn’t make eye contact, they tried to be tough, tried not to let themselves be vulnerable but the beautiful thing was as we shot, they just became more and more relaxed. By the time we were through the rehearsal period even they were like friends.

And they reflect the multi-ethnic streets of the U.K.:

JC: I don’t actually think race has a huge amount to do with my film. I really wanted to give a young black actor the lead role. as someone who lives in a very mixed urban area, I don’t see it reflected on the screen very much. Apart from that, they were kind of interchangeable. I certainly didn’t cast with color in mind.

He’s bringing back hardcore movies for kids:

JC: We were kids at possibly the best time, not just for children’s cinema but what Lucas and Spielberg were doing wasn’t children’s cinema as we perceive it now. It wasn’t like four quadrant box ticking. Talk about penis breath in E.T., talk about Indiana Jones saying sh*t on the bridge. I wasn’t allowed to see Scanners yet I could see Raiders as a kid, so we just had this amazing period. For me, I think maybe it’s people of that generation just working that sh*t through because it had such an affect on us. Plus a feeling of the absence of that energy from contemporary cinema. Contemporary cinema’s become so polarized. It’s either for children or it’s an extremely sadistic horror. That sense where the energies were mixed up a bit and you didn’t know quite what you were going to get that was there in all of Lucas’s and Spielberg’s stuff has gone a bit.

Wright Turns Down ‘Walking Dead’ Offer, Presumably To Do Stuff About The Walking Living http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/wright-turns-down-walking-dead-offer-presumably-to-do-stuff-about-the-walking-living/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/wright-turns-down-walking-dead-offer-presumably-to-do-stuff-about-the-walking-living/#comments Mon, 14 Mar 2011 21:50:16 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201570 This is how angry Edgar Wright gets when you ask him to do more zombie projects.

Frank Darabont understands how zombie synergies work. Take one of the hottest shows on TV and leverage that show with a director that cut his teeth on a beloved zombie film (Shaun of the Dead) that would best be described as “cult” if it wasn’t so damn popular. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen. Wright conveyed to Collider that he was honored to be asked to helm an episode of”The Walking Dead,” but weaseled his way out of the opportunity by claiming that “I wouldn’t wanna be the guy that comes in and fucks it up.” We wouldn’t want that either, Edgar, but that probably wouldn’t happen (though this pairing seems a little too “on the nose” to really get excited about). There’s a decent chance that Wright didn’t want to be thought of as a “zombie guy,” so he’s taking his talents to other projects, which is pretty understandable. Also, Wright doesn’t strike me as much of a hired gun, and “The Walking Dead” will always be Darabont’s baby. It’s interesting to see Darabont reaching out to others in the wake of some criticism over season 1. Whether or not this is indicative of a genuine effort to get some new blood on the show or just a marketing gimmick remains to be seen, but either way, when you plant the seed of Edgar Wright working on a zombie show, you’ll accomplish the latter incidentally.

Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World has resumed work on his screenplay for a movie about the under-appreciated Marvel super-hero Ant-Man after break of more than two years. Much of that break was spent on Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, another comic book property, albeit not one as big or franchise-driven as a Marvel super-hero. Although as Marvel super-heroes go, Ant-Man is going to be pretty…small (GET IT EVERYONE??). Wright: “This one’s not about about the urgency of summer tentpoles and things going into production without a script. It’s slightly different than that. ” Anyway, funny super-heroes are in now, what with Iron Man and everything, especially if The Green Hornet does well financially this week. The question now is how involved Wright’s Ant-Man will be in that whole overarching mythology thing Marvel is trying — maybe Scott Pilgrim will get to joi The Avengers eventually? (24 Frames)

As a recent and thoroughly wide-eyed convert to the cultish Church of Pilgrim, I was no doubt predisposed to drool over every moment of the Scott Pilgrim vs The World DVD bonus features. And drool I did, nearly the whole way through. Come to think of it, there might be something wrong with my mouth.

From concept sketches to storyboards to a generous offering of gags, bloopers, and deleted scenes that kept me smiling from start to finish, this first half of the production alone was a worthy supplement to the most original film of the year, and an enticing reason to swap out your Pilgrim torrent for a good old-fashioned store-bought copy.

The features only get better once you dive into the commentary — four separate rounds of discussion including remarks from Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jason Schwartzman, director Edgar Wright, and creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. Not typically one to sit through two hours of actors and filmmakers talking about themselves, I was genuinely impressed by the level of discussion here; the commentary revealed minute details about the film’s rich visuals that I hadn’t noticed before and nifty factoids about the oh-so-indie musical score, while delving deep into the process behind transplanting the world of Scott Pilgrim from page to screen.

Whether you’re a fan of the film or a staunch and exceedingly hip member of the “the comic book was better than the movie” camp, this is a collection of features worth checking out.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World releases on DVD and Blu-ray November 9th.

First Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Pic Has Breakdancing and Lightsabers http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/first-scott-pilgrim-vs-the-world-pic-has-breakdancing-and-lightsabers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/first-scott-pilgrim-vs-the-world-pic-has-breakdancing-and-lightsabers/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 As you can see, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World takes place on the set of America Gladiators. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jason Schwartzman stand stoically as judges in the far background, while a dude breakdances in the middle ground. I'm just not sure if they're judging the dancing or Michael Cera's lightsaber skills. Maybe the guy taking a dump near the edge of frame knows. Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is about a Michael Cera type character played by Michael Cera who has to fight the seven evil ex-boyfriends of the girl of his dreams. That's a lot of effort to bag some tail. She better be really bendy. (via /Film)
