According to Collider, the Hollywood adaptation is still a go. Writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have been working on a draft of the script for some time.

Release date: 2011?

Starring Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, release date: December 17th, 2010

While EW's sentence of news leaves a great deal to learn, it does put "Ant Man" back in the consciousness.
