Paul Rudd On Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' Exit: 'It Hit Some Speed Bumps'
Actor and co-star Evangeline Lilly reveal the 'scary' moment they discovered the director had left the movie...
Following the news that three more stars - Patrick Wilson, Kevin Weisman and Matt Gerald - have also abandoned the project, Rudd commented at Comic Con: "It's been exciting to see how it's evolved and morphed. It's still the movie. The movie is the movie.
"Other things have come into play. And I feel really confident and excited about where we're at. It undoubtedly hit some speed bumps. I'm just thrilled that we're at where we're at now."
Evangeline Lilly also noted: "It was very scary for most of us creatives, because Edgar had been the guy to really rope us in. And his vision and his excitement and his passion and his ability as a filmmaker was part of the appeal, originally.
"I think all of us have Edgar in mind when we work on this film, that we want to make him proud, we want to do good by his vision. Because he really constructed the foundation and the backbone of what we are going to work from. And we just want to do right by him and make him proud."
Ant-Man is set for release in summer 2015.
