It was actually his idea.
But will he make a good lightning guy?
Be careful what you wish for…
Marc Webb seems to have found a balance of style and substance that many films, especially comic book adaptations, struggle to find.
Werewolves and Vampires do not play well.
Sources close to him indicate that Jobs did both walk and talk, so Aaron Sorkin seems like a natural fit.
Sony calls on the master of nerd storytelling.
A sequel’s been set before we’ve even seen the first one
Yo, HBO. You wanna hit?
The next logical progression in his career arc is a Hamas/Israeli conflict film.
They’re totally breaking the bro code by not sharing plot details.
If you want an indie, Shaun of the Dead-ie take on aliens… it’s coming… soon.
They’ve decided to write a script. That’s a good start!!
Thanks to a $300 worldwide box office, a sequel was as inevitable as Evelyn Salt stopping the nuclear missiles at the end.
Casting directors everywhere send out feelers for the “Japanese Andre the Giant.”
Columbia Pictures has grabbed the US distribution rights for the film, to be written by ‘The Hurt Locker’ scribe Mark Boal. It’s a regular Hurt Lockereunion.
The posters feature a scared as hell Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari, as well as the very first intelligent apes from ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’.
Sony is a very attractive distribution partner for MGM and clearly “wants it.” The James Bond distribution rights, that is.
With talks of Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber headlining the same movie, it looks like the stars are aligning. Or are those asteroids headed to earth to destroy us?
If you’re wondering what ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’ would be like if the chipmunks were blue and were chased around by an ugly wizard and his cat, then stop using your imagination and watch this horrible trailer.
Oh, and they’re both Sony films. But that’s it, everybody.
Luckily, there’s a deal in the works that will save these films from a fate worse than a Commie invasion: sitting on the shelf for even longer than they already have.
Now that we’ve all gotten used to the idea of Peter Parker being able to organically spin webbing from his wrists, those bastards at Sony are pulling the rug out from under us once again, bringing back Spider-Man’s famous web-shooters.
Sony reportedly will not make a third Ghostbusters movie without Bill Murray, and the star, who has a reputation for being, ahem, very selective, has yet to sign on since being delivered the script recently.

If all goes as planned for the folks behind the upcoming Spider Man reboot, we’ll soon see Martin Sheen shot to death at the hands of an anonymous burglar.
He comes in peace.
And here you thought Roland Emmerich couldn't settle for anything less than epic. The director, who in Independence Day and 2012 destroyed the land we love so much, is prepping The Zone, and alien invasion movie he'll make with a $5 million budget. No plot details are known but it will take the "found footage" approach and be improv-based with a cast of relative unknowns, much like Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity.
Shooting begins in mid-November off a script by French writer-director Guillaume Tunzini. Considering the budget for The Zone is what Emmerich usually spends on his craft services strudel supply, it'll be interesting to see what he cranks out. No demolishing famous landmarks this time around. The best he'll get is a modest ranch home with not too much surrounding land to scorch. (THR)
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.
Marvel wasn't just going to let DC own the day by announcing Tom Hardy will be a villain in the next Batman. Nuh uh. They've just announced that recently cast Rhys Ifans will be playing Dr. Curt Connors a.k.a. The Lizard in Marc Webb's Spider-man reboot. Poor Dylan Baker. He had to keep his arm inside of his shirt for the previous Spider-man movies, pretending that he was an amputee, and he never even got the chance to turn into a reptile.
Spider-man hits theaters in 3D July 3, 2012. You'll probably hear more about this movie before then. (TheWrap)
