ANT-MAN AND THE WASP has hired writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari to pen the actioner after the pair previously did several months of uncredited work on the first film. The Big Short’s Adam McKay will assist in breaking the story with star Paul Rudd. McKay was one of the writers on the first film as well.
Little is known about the plot of the sequel outside of it being the first Marvel film to feature a female hero in the title. The ending of the first installment also implied a likely search for Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. Director Peyton Reed has said that it will not be a heist film like its predecessor.
Barrer & Ferrari previously wrote Die In A Gunfight which made the 2010 Black List and the 2011 Young & Hungry List. The script was picked up by The Mark Gordon Company. They are also attached to write Transformers 5 and the Sabrina The Teenage Witch movie.
Barrer and Ferrari are repped by 3 Arts Entertainment and WME.
