Paul Rudd, who has been in Atlanta in the past for “Anchorman 2” and “Wanderlust,” in addition to a visit to Conan O’Brien’s late-night show when it taped here, will now star in “Ant-Man,” based out of Fayetteville’s Pinewood Atlanta Studios.
He was spotted Thursday night at the Falcons-Bucs game, having previously been spotted at a recent screening of “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
“Ant-Man,” which has signed Atlanta rapper-actor Clifford “T.I.” Harris onto the project, also will star Michael Douglas. He’s been here in the past as well, starring in “Last Vegas” with Kevin Kline, Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro.
Here’s the plot of “Ant-Man,” per imdb:
“Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”
