Paul Rudd to star in Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

by Greg Belfrage

The long talked about Ant-Man seems to be getting off the ground. Marvel Entertainment is announcing that Paul Rudd has been cast to star in the film.

Rudd is perhaps best known for his role as Brian Fantana in the Anchorman films. You've got to give Marvel credit for the timing of their Rudd announcement, since Anchorman 2 opens in theaters today.

Marvel isn't releasing many details about Ant-Man, but they're clearly excited about Rudd's involvement in the movie.

"We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it, but became as enthusiastic as any actor we'd ever met with about doing the work, we knew we'd found the right guy." - Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige
