Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones rumored to be close to signing on for Edgar Wright's Ant-Man

Did you like the rumor about Paul Rudd possibly playing Hank Pym/Ant-Man? How about Rashida Jones being a contender to play Janet Van Dyne? If so, I have some potentially awesome news for you: both are apparently very close to signing on for ANT-MAN, according to Schmoes Know.

The site has learned from a very reliable source (the same source that broke the BEETLEJUICE 2 news last week) that Marvel is interested in pairing Paul Rudd with Rashida Jones, and doesn't call it a rumor but "a very active development within Marvel’s camp." The site also says, "things are close to being announced. And soon."

While I am  in love a slight fanboy when it comes to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man is perfect casting in my opinion. In fact, now the only person I want to play the character is Rudd. And having his I LOVE YOU, MAN co-star as his love interest is a great idea since the two of them had fantastic chemistry in that film. If Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones are really this close to joining ANT-MAN, we could hear something more official very soon.

Edgar Wright's ANT-MAN will be in theaters on July 31st, 2015.

You didn't think I'd miss an opportunity to post a sexy pic of Rashida Jones, did you? Just to be fair, I'll also add one of Paul Rudd for the ladies. Or men, I don't judge.

Extra Tidbit: Ant-Man doesn't always wear cologne, but when he does, he prefers Sex Panther.
