"Yeah. It wasn't the whole movie and there are new elements in the movie obviously, now, that [Wright] was not involved in. But there are some segments that are awesome and will be brought to life in some incarnation," Feige says, "Peyton certainly has all that material and is a talented enough and a secure enough guy to notice if something is really cool and go 'No reason to change that, that's great.' Or if he's got his own spin on something to go and adapt it from there."
