Martin Sheen joins Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in Spider-Man reboot
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Martin Sheen is finishing negotiations to play Uncle Ben in the new SPIDER-MAN reboot. I’ve expressed my distaste for the reboot but Columbia Pictures is putting together an interesting team to fulfill their desire to make money. Andrew Garfield will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone will play Gwen Stacey and Rhys Ifans will play the unnamed villain. With Sheen adding to the mix they have a little more established talent credibility but as Uncle Ben his part might be cut short.
Marc Webb (500 DAYS OF SUMMER) will be tackling the blockbuster as director from a script by James Vanderbilt. The untitled SPIDER-MAN movie will hit theaters July 3, 2012.
