Movie Chronicles » Untitled Spider-man project

Untitled Spider-man project filming this December August 5th, 2010

Spider-man 4 is no more, and much of the news on this blog now per­tains to a vision of Spider-man that will never be made. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Sam Raimi et al, will not be back in a Spider-man incar­na­tion. I thought I ought to make that clear before con­tin­u­ing with the next piece of news.

Sony instead opted to reboot the Spider-man fran­chise with a new direc­tor, Marc Webb, with actor Andrew Garfield play­ing Peter Parker. Film­ing is set to start this Decem­ber in Los Ange­les, and is also expected to take place in New York. The project is being pro­duced by Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad.

The film is sched­uled for a July 3rd 2012 release.
