We heard that Sony may be aiming for a late 2010 start following the casting of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man last month, and now SHH has learned that the reboot will begin filming in December in Los Angeles.
Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy also filmed parts of the movie in Los Angeles, with New York City as the main shooting location. No word yet on whether Marc Webb’s reboot will be filming in New York too, but I would imagine so given that Peter Parker lives there. There are budget and access issues to deal with in New York though, which is why Sony can’t shoot there exclusively.
With around 5 months left before cameras roll we should be hearing casting news on the villain, Mary-Jane Watson and Aunt May soon. It’ll be tough to find a replacement for J. K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson, but if they make the character more serious as opposed to just being the comic relief it may aid the transition.
Who do you want to join the cast alongside Andrew Garfield?
