Peyton Tucker Reed (born July 3, 1964) is an American television and film director. He is best known for directing the comedy films Down with Love, Yes Man, Bring It On, and The Break-Up, as well as the superhero film Ant-Man.
Reed was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Reed directed the motion pictures Bring It On, Down with Love, and The Break-Up; all comedy films. He has also acted in small roles in some films including his own and has written a few original songs for his soundtracks. He has also produced a few music videos.
Reed directed the 2008 film Yes Man, starring Jim Carrey. Yes Man is an adaptation of Danny Wallace's autobiography about his decision to say "yes" to whatever offer, invitation, challenge, and opportunity that are presented to him.
Reed replaced Edgar Wright as the director of Ant-Man. Prior to joining the production of Ant-Man, Reed was slated to direct a Brian Epstein biopic, titled The Fifth Beatle. However, his commitment to the superhero film forced him to part ways with The Fifth Beatle. Reed will direct the Ant-Man sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, scheduled for a 2018 release.
