Jeff Loveness, a writer/co-producer on Cartoon Network’s acclaimed Rick and Morty, has been tapped to pen the script for the third installment of Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man.
Peyton Reed, who directed the previous two installments, 2015’s Ant-Man and 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, is back as director, having closed his deal last fall.
The deal was wrapped up in the early days of Hollywood’s shutdown, according to sources, and Loveness has already commenced writing.
Marvel has yet to publicly announce the project and seeing as writing is just getting underway, it is unclear when the third Ant-Man outing would shoot. Sequels Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder were slated to shoot this year but the coronavirus pandemic has thrown all of Hollywood’s production schedule upside down. On Friday, Disney reshuffled the release dates of its movie slate, pushing back the series of Marvel films known as Phase 4.
