It looks like things are moving fast now! Just after we posted the news that Martin Sheen is in final talks to play Uncle Ben in Columbia Pictures’ untitled Spider-Man movie, we’ve learned that Sally Field has been offered the role of Aunt May in the film as well.
In the original Spidey trilogy, Uncle Ben was played by Cliff Robertson and Aunt May was played by Rosemary Harris.
Should Field accept the role, she would be joining Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans in the Marc Webb-directed film that starts shooting in just over a month.
Columbia Pictures is targeting a July 3, 2012 release.
