Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones are both charming and funny in their similarly understated ways, and what's better is that they work together pretty dang well, as evidenced by "I Love You, Man" and "Our Idiot Brother."
Now the pretty pair is said to be preparing for another on-screen reunion — this time within the Marvel Universe.
According to a report over at Schmoes Know, a "very reliable source" has spilled the magic movie beans to share that Rudd and Jones are near to closing on the big roles of Dr. Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne in Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man." That's right, two of your pretend besties are (maybe!) about to become insectazoid superheroes, if the rumors hold up, and yes, you love it already.
If the report is accurate, it shouldn't come as too much of a shocker to anyone keeping score on this project since earlier this »

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.
Some more Ant-Man movie news is floating around the internet. According to Schmoes Know, the site that broke the Tim Burton Beetlejuice news, Paul Rudd is close to closing a deal to play Ant-Man in the Edgar Wright-directed Marvel film, and Rashida Jones could end up in the role of Janet van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, which would be amazing! I would love to see these two actors work together again, especially in a Marvel movie like Ant-Man. The two have starred together in the comedies I Love You, Man; and Our Idiot Brother.
The same source that gave the site the Beetlejuice news also fed them this little tidbit of information. The source says that the Jones as Wasp casting might already be a done deal. It was previously rumored at Superhero Movie News that the Wasp won't actually be in the movie, but that Janet Van Dyne will. »

Casting is moving into high gear for the upcoming Ant-Man film as the shooting date comes closer. The latest contender for a role in the film is Rashida Jones, who may play the hero’s lady-love Janet Van Dyne, Aka the Wasp.
On the heels of the news earlier in the week that Paul Rudd or Joseph Gordon-Levitt were the likely finalists for the role of Henry Pym--aka Ant-Man--in the upcoming Marvel film, we now have another casting rumors. Reports have been circulating that Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation, the Office) is the first choice to co-star as the shrinking hero’s love interest Janet Van Dyne, who comic fans know will eventually become the super-heroine known as The Wasp.

The actress is said to be at the top of Marvel's short list because of her "chemistry with other actors," particularly with Paul Rudd, whom she starred with in I Love You, Man and Our Idiot Brother, and fellow Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt. We reported earlier this week that Paul Rudd is in contention for the title role.
An unidentified source revealed that, while Janet Van Dyne will be big a part of the story, she will not actually turn into The Wasp.
"Janet will be a love interest and a major supporting character, we would see multiple references to her future as The Wasp throughout the film."
Talk of Ant-man casting earlier this week for director Edgar Wright forthcoming superhero adventure saw Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd linked to the role of Henry Pym. Given Wright’s comedic background, I think it’s safe to say it was always going to have a more amusing edge than Marvel’s previous efforts. Funny means a natural ‘funnyman’ may well be needed and both fit the bill. The Don Jon actor Jgl has since claimed it’s only rumours, while Paul Rudd has remained tight-lipped. Needless to say, those sources who broke the story are adamant both actors will be meeting Marvel chiefs.
As for the lead female role. Word has it that Janet Van Dyne, a comic-book character known as The Wasp, will be introduced in the film, although not as her alter-ego initially. That’s apparently something being kept for sequels but will be hinted at throughout the opening Phase III film. »

With the enormous success of Marvel's movies, speculation over future comic-book adaptations is endless.
The next property in the spotlight is "Ant-Man," one of Marvel's lesser-known heroes. Director Edgar Wright stoked fans' fire by tweeting a tantalizing glimpse at the movie. But just who will play the titular character? Rumors first swirled around Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who denied them. Then, Paul Rudd's name was linked to the role.
"Janet will be a love interest and a major supporting character," a source tells the site. "We would see multiple references to her future as The Wasp throughout the film."
The pairing of Rudd and Jones makes total sense; they've exhibited a lot of chemistry in two previous movies, "I Love You, Man" and "Our Idiot Brother. »

Since director Edgar Wright took to Twitter this month to announce his return to pre-production on Ant-Man, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd have been reported has front-runners for the title role. But now there's potential casting surrounding the supporting role of Janet Van Dyne, better known as The Wasp. According to questionable sources of Superhero Movie News, who were apparently informed of Paul Rudd's involvement early on, Parks and Recreation's Rashida Jones has topped Marvel's shortlist for Janet Van Dyne in light of her “chemistry with the other actors.” It's worth noting that Jones has starred opposite Paul Rudd in I, Love You Man and My Idiot Brother. Also, Superhero Movie News further quote their source(s) on Edgar Wright's plans for The Wasp in the Ant-Man adaptation: “Janet would [only] be a love interest and a major supporting character, we would see multiple references to her future »
Proxy, the fourth feature film by writer-director-producer Zack Parker (Scalene), premiered Tuesday night at theToronto International Film Festival and stars mumblecore king Joe Swanberg. The film follows the pregnant Esther, played by Alexia Rasmussen (Our Idiot Brother), after she is viciously attacked while walking home from a doctor's appointment. Disfigured and traumatized, Esther joins a support group, hoping to come to terms with her assault, but what she finds there is much more intriguing.
Before the premiere of the film on Tuesday, we were able to chat with Zack Parker about high frame rates and high tension. »

Unlike those self-loathers, FF6 delivered the goods by steadfastly staying true to its ridiculous roots, and somehow managed to outdo its own pistonheaded, action-hungry blueprint. It gives you everything you'd expect, providing that consists of wonderfully daft plotting, characters who are always in the right/wrong place at the right/wrong time and tons of spectacular stunts and action. It does everything it can to entertain, with an almost admirable logic-be-damned attitude. Such as Michelle Rodriguez's presence – surely her character died back in the fourth instalment? Yes, but she was great fun so she's been exhumed. »

John Carney’s Can a Song Save Your Life? has been on everyone’s radar for a long time now, and it comes as no surprise that the early reviews out of Tiff have been incredibly positive.
Now word comes that The Weinstein Company have acquired the Us rights for the movie, paying a sizable $7m. with a $20m. advertising commitment.
Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Catherine Keener star in this soul-stirring music industry drama about an undiscovered young singer and a washed-up producer. These lost souls meet, see something special in the other and ultimately make beautiful music together in this latest film from Once writer-director John Carney.
Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley lead the cast, with Catherine Keener, Adam Levine, Hailee Steinfeld, Cee Lo Green, James Corden, and Yasiin Bey (a.k.a. Mos Def) completing the cast very nicely, with Maroon 5’s Levine making his feature debut as an actor. »

It takes a bold, thoughtless person to mess with Dame Judi Dench. Dench stars in the first trailer for Stephen Frears’ Philomena as the titular Philomena Lee, a woman who was sent away to a convent as a young girl and forced to give up her son. Nearly fifty years later, she enlists the help of a former journalist to help track him down in America. Steve Coogan steps in to play the journalist, Martin Sixsmith, who is using the opportunity to write a human-interest story about Philomena and her reunion with her son. Though we know Coogan as a gifted comedian, he’s proved several times that he can hold his own in dramatic turns (The Look of Love, Our Idiot Brother); and from the trailer, the unlikely friendship blossoming between Philomena and his character looks to be one of the strongest parts of the film. Coogan also co-wrote the screenplay, which »

She didn't quite explode as instantly as some were predicting, but two years after her breakthrough role in "Like Crazy," Felicity Jones is going to be inescapable soon. The actress has already been seen this year in her excellent reteam with Drake Doremus, "Breathe In," and will be on the festival circuit in the fall with Ralph Fiennes' "The Invisible Woman." Beyond that, 2014 will bring "True Story" with James Franco and Jonah Hill, Stephen Hawking biopic "Theory Of Everything" opposite Eddie Redmayne, and her blockbuster debut in a mysterious role in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." And somehow, Jones is finding time to squeeze in a part on one of our favorite TV shows. Bleeding Cool noticed a tweet from director Jesse Peretz (who helmed "Our Idiot Brother" and several episodes of both "New Girl" and Lena Dunham's show) that read "Insanely happy to be directing the hilarious Richard E »

Though Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder, Hamlet 2) has clearly shown that he's more accustomed to comedy on the big screen, supporting turns in films like Our Idiot Brother and The Look of Love show that he has some solid dramatic chops waiting to be stretched as well. Now he gets his chance with some good company in Judi Dench. In the first trailer for Philomena, a woman goes searching for the son she was forced to give up as a young girl, and navigates America to find him with the help of a former journalist. Coogan also co-wrote the screenplay based on Martin Sixsmith's book on this tragic real-life story. Watch! Here's the UK trailer for Stephen Frears' Philomena from Pathe (via Empire): Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) was sent away to a convent to be looked after as a "fallen woman". Taken from her at the age »
