Adam McKay gives some details about the 'Ant-Man' rewrite he and Paul Rudd worked on after Edgar Wright left the movie.
By Tatiana Siegel Marvel Studios is moving fast to make good on its promise to keep its July 17, 2015, release date forAnt-Man. Sources say Rawson Thurber, Adam McKay and Ruben Fleischer are among a group of directors that are meeting with the studio to replaceEdgar Wright, who abruptly exited the long-gestating project last week over creative differences. The trio offers a glimpse into the mindset of Marvel president Kevin Feige as he looks to fill the hole left by Wright, a favorite among the fan-boy community. Thurber (We’re the Millers, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) and McKay (theAnchorman movies) are known for their bawdy comedies.
Of course, that all went out the window when we spoke with Baxter, Ron Burgundy’s faithful pooch and one of the top dog actors of all-time. On the occasion of this week’s Blu-ray release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” Baxter phoned in to give us this very rare and special interview, translated by the film’s writer-director, Adam McKay. I went through an extensive audition process in New York City to start with and then they took me to Hollywood. They put me up in the Beverly Hills Hotel.
