Deadline reports that Paramount is teaming the talent of Wright and Protosevich for Collider, based on an original idea by Wright. Protosevich is currently involved with the remake of Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy, which is being directed by Spike Lee and stars Josh Brolin. Protosevich’s future works also include a feature adaptation of the hit video game Mass Effect and the reboot, Jurassic Park 4.
Wright, meanwhile, is busy completing The World’s End, his “blood and ice cream trilogy” with stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. The recently greenlit sci-fi comedy features a group of friends who reunite in order to complete an unfinished pub crawl, with the final stop at the bar named The World’s End. You may have also heard about Wright’s recent tests of Marvel’s Ant-Man which was recently screened at Comic-Con for the gathered masses.
We just wondering after Worlds End what will come first? Will it be Ant-Man or Collider?? Let us know and comment below…
