ANT-MAN Director Follies: Nicholas Stoller Not In Contention


Last evening, when reporting on how Marvel Studio is going to be going “radio silent” in their quest to find a new director for their Ant-Man film nearly two weeks now after Edgar Wright left the project, I commented that the situation was very fluid and could change at any moment. Well, this morning we are waking to new news on the search.

Collider is reporting “on very good authority” that reports that Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller is under consideration to take the Ant-Man directing gig are not true. This contradicts yesterday’s report from Deadline that he was. Collider states that it can neither corroborate or refute the reportage that Michael Dowse is also being looked at by Marvel.

Who knows what the next twelve hours will bring?
