Edgar Wright Still Might Shoot ‘Ant-Man’ This Year?

Edgar Wright‘s ‘Ant-Man‘ has long been in the works, but it’s looking like the visionary British director might be shooting that film and ‘The World’s End‘… at the same time?

File this under “Things to take with a grain of salt,” but Wright recently spoke to SlashFilm to clarify comments he made on the Empire podcast, specifically when he was asked about the progress on ‘Ant-Man’ with the recent success of ‘The Avengers‘:

Things are happening, and other things are happening on other things as well. There’s some interesting plates spinning and I ideally hope I’ll be shooting this year.

Wright has been working on the script for ‘Ant-Man’ for years with writer Joe Cornish (‘Attack the Block’), but Wright is already scheduled to begin production on ‘The World’s End’ this September, which will reunite him with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Could the director possibly film both at the same time? When SlashFilm asked him about the possibility, his answer wasn’t any less vague:

So as not to jinx things, I am going to remain spectacularly vague on this. Let’s just say I hope to shoot some Antman & World’s End this year.

Some sounds reasonable, shooting both of these films in their entirety seems highly improbable this year, even for a man of Wright’s talents.
