The Amazing Spiderman [Reboot] - Marc Webb (2012)


Recommended Posts


On aime les jeux de mots chez Sony.


Marc Webb, the director of the Golden Globe-nominated Best Picture (500) Days of Summer, will direct the next chapter in the Spider-Man franchise, set to hit theaters summer 2012, it was jointly announced today by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios.


Written by James Vanderbilt, Webb will work closely with producers Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin in developing the project, which will begin production later this year.


Commenting on the announcement, Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures, said, "At its core, Spider-Man is a small, intimate human story about an everyday teenager that takes place in an epic super-human world. The key for us as we sought a new director was to identify filmmakers who could give sharp focus to Peter Parker's life. We wanted someone who could capture the awe of being in Peter's shoes so the audience could experience his sense of discovery while giving real heart to the emotion, anxiety, and recklessness of that age and coupling all of that with the adrenaline of Spider-Man's adventure. We believe Marc Webb is the perfect choice to bring us on that journey."


Arad and Ziskin added jointly, "Over the years, the Spider-Man comics have been told with bold and creative new writers and artists who have re-calibrated the way audiences see Peter Parker. Marc Webb will do for the new direction of the films what so many visionary storytellers have done with the comic books. He is an incredibly talented filmmaker and we look forward to working closely with him on this new adventure."


Webb said, "This is a dream come true and I couldn't be more aware of the challenge, responsibility, or opportunity. Sam Raimi's virtuoso rendering of Spider-Man is a humbling precedent to follow and build upon. The first three films are beloved for good reason. But I think the Spider-Man mythology transcends not only generations but directors as well. I am signing on not to 'take over' from Sam. That would be impossible. Not to mention arrogant. I'm here because there's an opportunity for ideas, stories, and histories that will add a new dimension, canvas, and creative voice to Spider-Man."


Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, added, "I'm excited that Sony has chosen a director with a real penchant and understanding for the character. This is a brave, bold direction for the franchise, and I can't wait to see what Marc comes up with next."


Added Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, "The idea of re-imagining the on-screen story for one of the world's most iconic superheros is sure to deliver an exciting new dimension to Spider-Man fans everywhere. There are volumes of comics and material available to inspire fresh and compelling takes on Peter Parker and his journey as Spidey and we look forward to seeing this come alive onscreen."


Marc Webb has won acclaim with his film debut (500) Days of Summer. He has several MTV VMAs™ including 2009's Best Director award for Green Day's "21 Guns," 2006 Best Rock Video for AFI's "Miss Murder," and Best Group Video for The All-American Rejects' "Move Along." The Music Video Production Association honored him in 2006 as the Director of the Year for his work with Weezer, AAR, and My Chemical Romance.


In addition to two Golden Globe nominations including Best Picture (musical or comedy), his first feature film, (500) Days of Summer, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, has been nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Feature. Webb was also awarded the Spotlight Award, which honors outstanding directorial debuts, by the National Board of Review.

J'aime bien le commentaire du site Mad Movies :

Il faut donc s’attendre à ce que le prochain Batman soit confié à Nancy Meyers, Iron Man 3 à Woody Allen, Captain America à Anne Fletcher et Sgt. Rock à Nora Ephron (Sam Raimi étant occupé sur un remake de Je vais bien, ne t’en fais pas et James Cameron ayant laissé tomber tous ses projets en cours pour tourner des épisodes de Glee).

Moi c'est la rue au second plan qui me plait pas.


Bon sinon j'irai sans doute le voir. J'en attends rien de spécial mais de toute façon ça pourra difficilement être pire que le 3. J'espère juste qu'ils feront quelque chose d'assez différent de ce qu'a fait Raimi, qu'ils exploreront d'autres pistes, qu'ils nous rejoueront pas l'éternel héros torturé entre son rôle de justicier et sa vie privée. Dommage par contre que Jerry Macguire est pas repris le rôle. Il m'avait totalement convaincu en Peter Parker et j'ai peur que ce nouvel interprète, aussi bon soit-il, ait du mal à me le faire oublier.

J'arrive toujours pas à me faire a l'idée qu'ils ont pas fait expres d'associer le nom du real et le sujet.

C'est pas possible.


Pour reprendre le message de Mad posté plus haut, et dans le même ordre d'idée, j'aurais bien vu Woody Allen faire un film sur l'univers des pulls ou sur l’hygiène buco-dentaire
