Paul Rudd “Instrumental” In Rewriting ‘Ant Man’ Script

Adam Mckay, who recently rewrote the script for Marvel Studios ‘Ant Man’ says Paul Rudd was “instrumental” in helping him to rewrite the films script. The Jewish actor will be portraying Scott Lang/Ant Man in the film set to be released July 17, 2015. The ‘Ant Man’ script was previously penned by director Edgar Wright but was rewritten after he left the project.

“So the two of us holed up in hotel rooms on the east and west coast.” Mckay told, “I think it was like six to eight weeks we just ground it out and did a giant rewrite of the script. We added some new action beats… There’s a lot that’s already in there from what Edgar did, there’s a lot of dialogue and character still in there.”

Paul Rudd grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and his family’s original surname was ‘Rudnitzky’ before his grandfather changed it to ‘Rudd’.
