After Marvel turned to frequent One-Shot writer Eric Pearson to touch up Joe Cornish and director Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man script led to the latter departing the project, Anchorman’s Adam McKay – who was at one point approached to replace Wright – was announced as the new writer of the movie.

However, according to a new report, writing duo Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer are now the latest to come aboard and Ant-Man as they have been hired to rewrite the script which was revised by McKay.

The news was broken by Latino-Review, and they point out the fact that rather than this being a sign that Ant-Man (which will now be directed by Yes Man helmer Peyton Reed) is in terrible trouble as it moves into production, Ferrari and Barrer have simply been hired as production writers.

This means that they will be on the Ant-Man set in Atlanta to do any rewrites which might necessary for production revisions. This is a common practice, and the duo may not even get a screenwriting credit depending on how much they contribute. That will be up to  the Writer’s Guild arbitration committee.

Regardless, the addition of these two to Ant-Man’s rocky production is no bad thing, especially after they impressed many with their 2010 Black List script, Die In A Gunfight. However, it was their take on Sony’s upcoming reboot of Sabrina The Teenage Witch which apparently caught Marvel’s attention!
