‘Ant-Man’ star Paul Rudd has signed on to headline a feature adaptation of the 2012 Jonathan Evison novel ‘The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving,’ says Variety.

The film, which will serve as Rudd’s follow-up to Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man,’ follows the touching friendship between Rudd’s character, Ben Benjamin, a man suffering from an incredible amount of loss who forms a unique bond with a young adult stricken with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The two gently push each other toward re-engaging in life.

‘We Made This Movie’ writer-director Rob Burnett is attached to direct with Levantine Films and David Letterman’s Worldwide Pants producing.
