Paul Rudd In Early Talks To Lead ANT-MAN For Marvel
After becoming a front-runner & declaring his involvement rumors, Anchorman: The Legend Continues star Paul Rudd has basically agreed to play Hank Pym in Marvel's Ant-Man as he's in early negotiations
Rudd has appeared slimmer than usual during promotion for the Anchorman sequel. According to The Wrap, it has very much to do with Ant-Man as the actor is "training for the physical role."
This news isn't too surprising especially considering Joseph Gordon-Levitt has committed to a DC comic book adaptation for Warner Bros. And Paul Rudd has since been the only name linked to the coveted role. As for supporting cast members, we still don't know if there's any legitimacy to previous rumors that actress Rashida Jones may play the lead female role, Janet Van Dyne. Anyhow, Ant-Man is scheduled to shoot in Atlanta, Georgia in May 2014. And directed by Edgar Wright from his screenplay, co-written by Joe Cornish, the film opens July 31, 2015! What do you think?
