Last week, two separate rumors surfaced revealing that Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones are in contention to play Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne in Ant-Man. While no deals have been signed quite yet, a second report now claims that both actors are very close to signing on, and that it might actually be a "done deal" already.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is also being considered to play Hank Pym. The actor confirmed he was in discussions last week, but he wouldn't say that he had the role or not. Rashida Jones has been the only name mentioned so far for the Janet Van Dyne role, although it was revealed that her character will not turn into The Wasp. However, she will be Hank Pym's love interest and play a major supporting role.
Edgar Wright is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Cornish, based on the Marvel comic books. No story details have been confirmed at this time.
