Edgar Wright will direct the sci-fi coming-of-age tale Grasshopper Jungle for Sony Pictures, EW has confirmed. The news follows Wright’s highly publicized departure from Marvel’s Ant-Man.

The film, based on the YA novel by Andrew Smith, follows a young boy and his friends who cause a genetically engineered plague, unleashing human-size praying mantises, which they must fight. Wright will direct the flick once he wraps Baby Driver for Working Title.

Scott Rosenberg (Beautiful Girls) is writing the script and will produce alongside Matt Tolmach and Nira Park. Deadline first reported the news.
