Ant-Man recruits two new writers Marvel has recruited a pair of new writers to lend a hand on the Ant-Man script, with Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer set to join the project. The script has been few a fair few drafts by this stage, with Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish writing the original, before Eric Pearson was brought on to perform the rewrites before Wright walked away from the project. Following that, Adam McKay was approached to rewrite the script for new director, Peyton Reed, and now Ferrari and Barrer have been approached to make some tweaks to that latest draft.
