LOS ANGELES (AP) - Edgar Wright and "Ant-Man" are going their separate ways.

The British filmmaker said in a joint statement with Marvel on Friday that the director and studio had differences over their vision for the film, so they made an "amicable" decision to part.

Marvel announced in 2012 that it tapped Wright to bring its smallest superhero to the screen. Paul Rudd is set to play Ant-Man, a scientist who can shrink himself to the size of an insect.

Wright's credits include "The World's End," ''Hot Fuzz," ''Shaun of the Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."

The change in "Ant-Man" leadership won't affect the film's release date, which is set for July 2015.

Marvel says a new director will be announced shortly.
