Corey Stoll to join "Ant-Man"?

March 25th, 2014

Corey Stoll is in talks to join Marvel's 'Ant-Man'.

The 'House of Cards' actor - who played Peter Russo in the first series of the political revenge drama - is negotiating a deal to join the superhero movie in an unspecified role, reports Variety.

His film work includes 'Midnight in Paris', 'The Bourne Legacy', and most recently, a key role in action thriller 'Non-Stop', which starred Liam Neeson.

'Ant-Man' will star Paul Rudd in the lead role of Scott Lang, the new incarnation of Ant-Man, while Michael Douglas has been cast as Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man who developed the technology that affords the hero - who can shrink down to insect size - his powers.

Michael Pena, Patrick Wilson and 'Lost' actress Evangeline Lilly are all in talks to join the film also, with production due to begin in April.

'Ant-Man' will be directed by Edgar Wright, who co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish.

The blockbuster is set to hit cinemas in July 2015, just a few months after Marvel's blockbuster sequel to 'The Avengers'.
