Anchorman star turning superhero in Marvel comic book adaptation...
The Anchorman star will play scientist-turned-superhero Henry Pym in the leftfield comic book movie, which is being directed by British filmmaker Edgar Wright.
Marvel's creative supremo Kevin Feige broke the news in a statement, saying: "When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star.
"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.
"We couldn't be more excited for our audiences to see what he's going to do to bring Ant-Man to life."
Ant-Man is slated for release in July 2015.
