Patrick Wilson, Matt Gerard and Kevin Weisman will no longer appear in Marvel’s Ant-Man.
The project has been in a state of flux after the abrupt exit of director Edgar Wright in May due to creative differences.
A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that the trio of actors, who were attached to Wright’s version, will no longer appear in the film. Wilson’s exit is due to scheduling conflicts.
Marvel, which will hit Hall H on Saturday, hired Peyton Reed to replace Wright in early June.
Paul Rudd is attached to star in the superhero project, with Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly also signed on.
The story will follow con man Scott Lang (Rudd), who has the ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength. He must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
