Speaking with MTV, Sam Raimi gave some Spider-man 4 updates, revealing that the script is currently undergoing some small rewrites whilst production is preparing for a March 2010 start, aiming for a May 6th 2011 release date. Casting hasn’t started yet, but it is set to get under-way shortly.
We’re hoping that it’s the first week in March,
At the moment, pre-production is in full swing, even as screenwriter Gary Ross continues to work on the script.
He’s working on a draft, I just gave him some notes and he’s doing a rewrite right now.
The production is starting to come together. I’ve got a production designer who is starting to design the sets and the environments that the picture will take place in. We just brought aboard Scott Stokdyk as one of the two visual effects supervisors, and I worked with him on all three ‘Spider-man’ pictures.
None of the casting has really taken place, but we’re starting to think about that now.
