Tuesday 12 October 2010
The new Spider-Man film cast is shaping up with Emma Stone (
Easy A) and Rhys Ifans from the upcoming
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows joining the film, set to feature Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.
Ifans ( Notting Hill, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Pirate Radio) will play the villain in the new reboot. The press release stated, "The filmmakers prefer to not reveal which character Ifans will be playing in the forthcoming film."
Marc Webb, who directed last year's sleeper hit (500) Days of Summer, will direct the new Spider-Man film, which is slated for a 3D release on July 3, 2012.
The actor will appear in Passion Play, starring Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox, about an angel saved from the clutches of a ruthless gangster by a trumpet player down on his luck. Also, he stars in Roland Emmerich's Anonymous (2012) - about who really wrote Shakespeare's plays - with Vanessa Redgrave and Derek Jacobi.
