Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb Sign on For Spider-Man Sequel
Today, Andrew Garfield signed on the dotted line and is officially set to return as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. Things got a little hairy there for a moment during negotiations because The Amazing Spider-Man performed better that Sony anticipated and Andrew Garfield thinks he’s a major reason why and wanted AN adequate raise in pay. Well, the fact is, he was right and Sony played a little hardball, but in the end gave Andrew Garfield the money he demanded and all is well in Spidey world.
Director Marc Webb also signed on the dotted line and will return as director. There is little surprise here, he did a fine job and had already been teasing the reboot’s next villain.Avi Arad will produce alongside Matt Tomach, and Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner are putting the finishing touches on the screenplay.
“We could not be more confident in the direction we are taking this new Spider-Man storyline and we are tremendously excited to be ramping up production again with Marc at the helm and Andrew continuing on as Peter Parker,” Belgrad said. “We can’t wait to share what we have in store for Peter and Spider-Man with audiences worldwide.”
The Amazing Spider-Man broke 4th of July records and grossed $751 million dollars world wide on a $230 million dollar budget and that’s before DVD and BluRay sales. Let us just say, the reboot was extremely profitable. Look for the film in 2014 and keep your ears and eyes open, now that Andrew Garfield is in, the rest of the casting dominos will fall into place.
