Now here is a crazy thing running around the rumour mill. Philip Seymour Hoffman is apparently in talks of playing Venom in the Spiderman franchise. Yay for having Venom apart of the rebooted franchise, but why have Mr. Hoffman play the part of Venom? (more…)
As you may have heard before, the Spiderman franchise is receiving a reboot after its previous director Sam Raimi opted not to return due to reports of creative differences. Not only that but the actor playing the titular hero Tobey Maguire was not going to return if his director was not going to be there. Sony thus had to search for someone to helm the project but not only that they needed a new actor to fill the role.
A few months back you may have heard that Marc Webb was offered the directorial duties to helm the franchise. He is best known for his work with the highly acclaimed romantic-comedy 500 Days of Summer. And now we have our new Spiderman, introducing…Andrew Garfield. You can view the photo to get a better look at the next Peter Parker. He is a newcomer and this is his first major role (headlining) Hopefully he can fill the role left by Tobey Maguire, Spiderman 2 is one of my favourite movies. There is plenty of time to get things underway the reboot film has a release date of July 3, 2012.
