Paul Rudd has worn many hats and faces in his comedic film career, but now sources in Hollywood are saying that he'll soon be adding superhero to his resume.
Set to be helmed by Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright, the Ant Man film is planned to be released after the sequel to The Avengers, in which Ant Man (real name Henry "Hank" Pym) is rumored to appear. Rudd is said to be in final talks of negotiations after having faced competition from The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been named 2013's top-grossing actor.
The four movies the 42-year-old star appeared in this year - Fast & Furious 6, G. I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain, and Snitch - banked a collective $1.3 billion at the global box office, putting him just ahead of second-placed Robert Downey Jr., who only released one movie in 2013, the highest-grossing production Iron Man 3, which took $1.2 billion.
Despicable Me 2 star Steve Carrell ranked third, with his work - including The Way Way Back and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone - bringing in $964 million, while WWE Superstar Dwayne's Fast & Furious 6 co-star, Riddick actor Vin Diesel placed fourth with $887 million.
Gravity and The Heat's successes with audiences helped propel Sandra Bullock to number five in the list - compiled by Forbes - with her movies grossing a total of $862 million this year. In sixth place was another Fast & Furious 6 actor, the late Paul Walker, who passed away last month after a car accident, bringing in $789 million, all of which came from the latest installment of the action franchise.
Kristin Davis is hoping for Sex and the City 3.
The 48-year-old actress - who played Charlotte Yorke in the hit films and long-running HBO series - has hinted that a third movie could be on the cards as there have been multiple discussions, but nothing has been agreed yet.
"I'm going to have a little talk with [co-star] Cynthia [Nixon] the next time I see her! I don't think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion. People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don't know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did," she said.
At present, the brunette beauty is focusing on being a mother to her two-year-old adoptive daughter Gemma and is in no hurry to throw herself back into a movie project. "The greatest luxury is being home in the morning when my daughter wakes up and not have to go anywhere. I have a beautiful home, a beautiful yard and a lot of food. If Gemma and I could just be there, I could probably go a long time without leaving," she explained.
Henry Cavill is sure Ben Affleck will make a "fantastic" Batman.
The Man Of Steel actor's Superman will be pitted against Ben's character in the provisionally titled Batman Vs Superman in 2015, and he's positive the star will do a great job of playing the superhero.
"I'm sure he'll be fantastic, above all else. As a filmmaker he's got his own style, he's not copying anyone else. He's been tenacious in his career, he's had ups followed by downs and now he's up again. I think that requires and shows a special strength of character and it's something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a dedication to the work and belief in one's self, and Ben has that," he said.

Despite an impressive jump from its debut at the twenty-second spot to number two this week, Frozen didn't make enough money to overtake last week's number one winner The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Although Thor: The Dark World had a fairly good two-week run at the top, we all knew that it was short-lived with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on its way to theaters.
The sequel to last year's huge hit The Hunger Games took in $158 million, which makes it the biggest opening for a film in the month of November and the sixth biggest opening for a film overall (right behind The Dark Knight and above its predecessor by $6 million). Thor: The Dark World came in second with $14.1 million while The Best Man Holiday also slipped one position down to number three with $12.4 million. Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man debuted at number four with $7.9 million, and Free Birds hung in there dropping one spot to number five with $5.3 million.

"We worked on [how Jennifer Lawrence looks when she's running]. One of the first things we talked about when we started Catching Fire was that she said she always made this stupid face when she ran, and I had to specifically watch out to make sure she didn't make the stupid face when she ran. So I was always checking. I would tell her, 'You made the stupid face!'"
- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence recalls working with Jennifer Lawrence on fixing how she looks when she's running in a scene.

Despite The Best Man Holiday beating Thor: The Dark World at the box office on Friday, the Marvel sequel came out on top overall this weekend, making it number one for a second consecutive week.
The superhero flick - which stars Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman - took in $36.5 million, just enough to get it ahead of The Best Man Holiday's $30.1 million debut. Last Vegas - which came in fourth last week - placed third this week with $8.4 million. Free Birds dropped one spot to number four with $8.1 million while Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa fell three spots from last week's second place with $7.4 million.

Dakota Johnson burst into tears when she was told she had the role in Fifty Shades of Grey.
The actress, who has been cast as Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel, said she was thinking about sex the moment she was offered the life-changing part.
"The phone rang and I remember looking out of this apartment to an apartment across the street. And I was looking at all of these people in their windows. And I thought, 'How funny would it be if I were watching people having sex right now?' They [management] said 'You got the offer' and I couldn't speak. I was just so relieved. I was crying and crying. Water was literally squirting out of my eyes because I had been so stressed out. And there's this giant Doberman Pincher laying on the bed next to me. And he just slowly fell asleep. It was so special and [this dog] didn't give a f*** about me and what I was going through."
Liam Hemsworth tried to lose weight for his role in Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The hunky actor claims he tried to avoid pumping iron in the gym and tried to eat healthily before reprising his role in the popular sci-fi series because he wanted to shed some extra pounds: "I was actually trying to lose weight, so I'm not lifting anything too heavy during this process. I tried to cut out the bad food."
Liam's co-star, Josh Hutcherson insists there was no rivalry between the male cast members on set when it came to bulking up their bodies for the movie. "We didn't really train together, for me I definitely did a lot more training for the first movie, I kind of coasted into the second one but I worked very hard, a lot of weight lifting and stuff," he explained.
