Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones Close to Be Signed on for 'Ant-Man'


Rudd is rumored being courted to play the title character, while his 'I Love You, Man' co-star is approached to be the hero's love interest.

Marvel is reportedly looking to reunite Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones. According to Schmoes Know, the two stars who shared screen in 2009's romcom "I Love You, Man" are high on the list to play Henry Pym and his leading lady Janet Van Dyne in the upcoming "Ant-Man" movie.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt was once also linked to take on the male lead, but he quickly denied it. "You know I'm very transparent when there is news in my career," he told the Huffington Post. "I'm always the first to tell my fans if there's really something happening, so if you don't hear it from me, it's just people spouting out rumors."

The project is said to be "a heist movie," with the cast to be announced before the year's end. Producer Kevin Feige recently told IGN, "[Edgar Wright] is working on just sort of tweaking the drafts with Joe Cornish ... And we're crewing up and prepping, and there should be some cast announcements probably before the end of the year."

The film was originally scheduled for November 6, 2015 before being moved up to summer release of July 31. Pre-production has begun early this month. A behind-the-scene picture previously shared by director Wright showed a male figure from behind in an indoor setting. Wearing a suit complete with a helmet, he was standing on an elevated stage and slightly crouching.
