Marvel Studios has hired screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari to join actor Paul Rudd to write the script for 2018's Ant-Man and the Wasp, reports Deadline. Rudd, who also plays the titular star, was involved in the writing process of the first Ant-Man film. The Hollywood trade goes on to say that writer/director Adam McKay will also be involved in developing the movie's story, although Peyton Reed is set to return to direct.
Although Barrer and Ferrari have no major finished films to their name, they did some re-writes of Ant-Man while it was shooting, and were also involved in the recent Transformers writer's room.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is scheduled to hit theaters July 6, 2018.
