During an interview this weekend promoting Elizabethtown, Kirsten Dunst confirmed rumors to Zap2it that Thomas Haden Church will play Sandman and Topher Grace is Venom in director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, opening in theaters on May 4, 2007.
“We have really great people though as the villains in this film, Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace — Venom and Sandman,” said Dunst, who plays Mary Jane Watson in the Spidey films.
“Maybe I wasn’t supposed to say that,” she added before reversing her claim. “It’s the other way around. You’re right,” she conceded to a journalist.
Dunst has yet to receive a script for the third film that will begin shooting in January. “But I know the general story. There’s a lot that they’re trying to fit into this one.”
