Evangeline Lilly In Talks For Role In ANT-MAN
Variety reports that Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly (Lost, Real Steel) is currently in talks for a lead role in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. The role is unnamed, but is expected to be Pym's (Michael Douglas) daughter and love-interest to Lang (Paul Rudd). It's also possible this could also be Janet van Dyne, who becomes The Wasp. Lilly recently took on a action-based role in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, which would make her an excellent candidate for Wasp.
Ladies previously linked for the role included Rashida Jones, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain. Clifton Collins Jr. is also attached for an unknown role in the film. Production begins in April, with the release date set for July, 2015.
