Sony wants little young white boys. The studio is currently casting for miniature versions of Spider-man and The Lizard for their Spider-man reboot, which recently added Rhys Ifans as adult Lizard. Moviehole has the specs:
Sony wants a dark-haired Caucasian boy to play actor Peter Parker at age 4 to 6 years old . Ideally, the boy should look a little like Andrew Garfield. In addition, the studio’s on the hunt for an actor to play Billy Connors, the son of Dr. Curt Connor. Applicants need be between 8 and 11 years old.
Don’t flip your sh*t, I’m sure the kiddies won’t be a huge part of the storyline. They’ll most likely be featured in minimal flashbacks. I seem to remember that comic issue when Peter egged Billy’s house on Halloween and Curt took the belt to his son for fraternizing with lowlifes. Yeah, I definitely read that in a comic and didn’t manifest it subconciously to block out a traumatic childhood event.
