It didn’t take Sony long to find Sam Raimi’s replacement to direct the next Spider-Man film.Â According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marc Webb will be helming the next installment of the franchise. According to the article, Webb will use the Jamie Vanderbilt script, which caused Raimi to exit the project and “will look and feel very different from the big movies that went before it.” The company will also be scaling down the budget of the flick to the $80 million range and feature a cast of unknowns.
That doesn’t sound good, does it?
On the plus side, it does look like the new film will be based more on the Ultimate Universe Spider-Man than the 616 Spidey.
Webb’s breakout film was (500) Days of Summer staring Zooey Deschanel.
