'Ant-Man' Reportedly Gets Another Pair Of Writers To Rewrite Script

Well, creative differences already bounced Wright from helming the film, the script got a punch up by Adam McKay, and Peyton Reed is now directing. But apparently, that’s not all.

According to Latino ReviewGabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer have been hired on to rewrite the script, while also serving as production writers during the shoot (which is not unusual for Hollywood blockbusters). It’s not clear how the final credits on this thing will work out—the WGA will eventually sort that—but the pair have turned heads with their “Die In A Gunfight” script, which landed on the Black List a few years ago, and they are also involved with the “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” remake which is … something…

“Ant-Man” arrives on July 17, 2015.
