After Monday’s big announcement that Sony is rebooting the “Spider-Man” franchise, the attention has turned to which director and star will bring the new version to life.
According to Deadline Hollywood, (500) Days of Summer and music video director Marc Webb is the frontrunner for the director’s chair, but that the studio has a “wish list” of directors that also includes James Cameron, David Fincher and Wes Anderson. You would think that District 9 helmer Neill Blomkamp is somewhere on that list as well.
The site says that Webb has met with the Spidey producers and studio executives to talk about getting the movie underway later this year for a summer 2012 release. The studio is also reportedly wanting to shoot the film in 3D.
