Aunt May to receive Amazing Spider-Man spinoff?

11 November 2014 6:44 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sony Pictures is rumoured to be working on an Amazing Spider-Man spinoff starring Aunt May.

The studio is developing an 'espionage' story about May Parker in her youth, according to Latino Review.

Sony has promised a female-led superhero movie, which has been assumed to feature Spider-Woman or Black Cat.

Sally Field portrayed Aunt May in Marc Webb's two most recent Spider-Man films, which have developed the mystery surrounding Peter Parker's youth and the death of his parents.

Marvel Comics recently reprinted Mark Millar, Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson's infamous 2003 miniseries Trouble, which centred around the young May Parker and revealed that she was really Spider-Man's biological mother.

The next film in the Sony series will be Sinister Six, which is scheduled for release on November 11, 2016. »

Miles Teller Joins Marc Webb's The Only Living Boy In New York

9 November 2014 9:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Miles Teller is a young up-and-coming actor who has a very long and successful career ahead of him. He most recently starred in an amazing film called Whiplash, which you need to see if you haven't already. He also plays Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The actor is now set to star in an indie film called The Only Living Boy in New York, which is being directed by The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb.

The script was written by Allan Loeb, and it tells the story of "a young man who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, but ends up becoming involved with the woman as well." Well, that's would be an incredibly awkward situation to find yourself in. The movie has been in development for awhile, but the director had to put it on hold so »

Week in Review: Marvel subpoenas Google for ‘Avengers’ trailer leak

8 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Need more proof Marvel controls the world? This week the movie studio even made Google (Google! of all companies) do their bidding when Marvel issued a subpoena to investigate the identity of a Google user named “John Gazelle” who may have been responsible for the low-quality leak of Marvel’s trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. The subpoena alleges that “John Gazelle” may have uploaded the file to a Google Drive account, and they have now “commanded” Google to “produce at the time, date, and place set forth below the following documents, electronically stored information, or objects, and to permit inspection, copying, testing, or sampling of the material.”

Both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter have copies of the court document. In it it’s clear that while the first request to produce documents was granted by the courts, Marvel was not granted the right to “permit entry onto the designated premises, »

Afm: Can TV Save the Indie Film Business?

5 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As independent film producers gather at Afm, one of the biggest things on their minds isn’t officially happening in the market: producing, financing and selling TV series.

“In my Cannes meetings, people were talking through their film and television slate, whereas maybe a year before everyone was just talking about their film slate,” says U.K.-based producer Iain Canning of See-Saw Films, which produced “The King’s Speech,” moved into TV with Jane Campion’s SundanceTV miniseries “Top of the Lake,” above, and is now on Steve McQueen’s HBO pilot “Codes of Conduct.” “There’s a dual agenda that I’ve never experienced before.”

Specialty film directors have lensed cable episodes for years, big-name auteurs Martin Scorsese, David Fincher and now “Birdman” helmer Alejandro G. Inarritu (Starz’s upcoming series “The One Percent”) have launched their own series, and movie stars including Scarlett Johansson (Sony Pictures TV »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

The World Doesn’t Need Another Marc Webb-Directed ‘Spider-Man’ Film, It Needs This

5 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s a familiar story: a blossoming up-and-coming indie director hits it big (well, relatively speaking, we are still chatting indie film here) with an original feature that demonstrates both talent and crossover appeal and is immediately locked down for a massive, sure-to-be-blockbuster and also-probably-a-franchise feature. (See Gareth Edwards and his Monsters, Jordan Vogt-Roberts and his Kings of Summer, Colin Trevorrow and his Safety Not Guaranteed, the list goes on and on.) At its heart, these are success stories — passionate directors who made it to the next (major) step based on the quality of work that probably took a considerable amount of time, money and grunt work. But there is a dark side. Okay, maybe “dark side” is taking it a bit too far, but the problem with immediately catapulting burgeoning directors into the upper echelon of directorial stardom is that it takes them out of the indie fray, meaning that we’re robbed of possible indie »

In a failed attempt to stop the romance, he finds himself also entangled with the woman.

Teller was recently seen in Divergent and Whiplash.

The Amazing Spider-Man Helmer Marc Webb to Direct The Only Living Boy in New York

5 November 2014 5:41 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Miles Teller is one of the stars of "Divergent" and "Fantastic Four," but is becoming more recognized for his work in "Whiplash," which is considered one of the best films of the year. Now comes word that Teller is in talks to star in "The Only Living Boy in New York," a new independent drama that will be directed by "The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb. Allan Loeb (Rock of Ages) wrote the script, which tells the tale of a young man who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, but ends up becoming involved with the woman as well. This is the first non-Spider-Man film that Webb will work on since "500 Days of Summer." He's also considering a Fox Searchlight movie, called "The Gifted." »

Miles Teller Joins Forces With 'Spider-Man' Director for Indie Drama

5 November 2014 3:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

From indie to "Insurgent" and back again, Miles Teller is everywhere we want to be. The up-and-coming actor is in talks for a starring role in Marc Webb's "The Only Living Boy in New York," which is about a guy who ends up entangled with his father's mistress. Talk about "That Awkward Moment"! Logan Lerman was attached to star way back in 2011, but that never quite happened.

Webb's most recent projects have been "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," neither of which particularly wowed fans. "Living Boy" would be a return to form for Webb; the writer/director made his name with "(500) Days of Summer," a good-natured indie romcom with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. (Sony's put a pin in the "Spider-Man" franchise, so Webb's got some time to pursue something a little smaller for the time being.) This would also be an opportunity for Teller to »

Miles Teller in Talks to Star in Marc Webb’s Drama The Only Living Boy In New York

4 November 2014 2:21 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marc Webb was highly regarded in the music video world when he made his feature directorial debut with 2009’s swell romantic comedy/drama (500) Days of Summer.  The sweet and uniquely told indie was a massive success, and Webb showed tremendous promise as a filmmaker—so much so that Sony then hired him to reboot the Spider-Man franchise.  Since that time, though, Summer remains the only non-Spider-Man movie under Webb’s belt, as he went right into directing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after the first Spidey pic.  The plan was for Webb to also move right into directing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 after the second film in order to stay on schedule, but after the critical and commercial disappointment of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony has opted to push back Spider-Man 3 and move forward with The Sinister Six first instead. Which brings us to today’s promising news regarding Webb’s next directorial effort. »

Miles Teller In Talks For Marc Webb’s The Only Living Boy In New York

4 November 2014 1:24 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of cinema’s most in-demand young actors today, Miles Teller, is continuing his foray into making kick-ass indies. Winning over countless throngs as the teen jazz drummer in this fall’s Whiplash, he’s made no bones about harbouring a deep passion for character-driven work. While he’s dabbled with mainstream studio fare like the Divergent series and Fantastic Four, he’s back from the lure of comic book fame to tackle the lead role in Marc Webb’s The Only Living Boy In New York.

The 500 Days Of Summer helmer similarly explored the world of studio franchises, as he was chiefly responsible for The Amazing Spider-Man reboot at Sony. He might be leaving the webbed superhero behind, but he won’t be relocating for this next feature. Much like the Spider-Man series, Living Boy is housed over at Sony, who put the pic on hold so Webb could »

Miles Teller to Star in ‘Spider-Man’ Director’s New Indie (Exclusive)

4 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miles Teller is in talks to star in the indie drama “The Only Living Boy in New York” with Marc Webb attached to direct.

Allan Loeb penned the script, which tells the tale of a young man who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, but ends up becoming involved with the woman as well.

Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing.

The film was put on hold as Webb focused on “The Amazing Spider-Man” franchise for Sony. Webb is now weighing “Living Boy” and the Fox Searchlight drama “The Gifted.” With Teller committing though, it now seems likely this will be Webb’s next film — and his first non “Spider-Man” pic since the indie smash “(500) Days of Summer.”

As for Teller, the actor has shown a strong range by jumping from popular commercial pics like the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot at »

Will Emma Stone Return in 'Amazing Spider-Man' Sequel or Spinoff?

4 November 2014 9:17 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Felicity Jones played coy about portraying Black Cat in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which didn't come as too big of a surprise, since Sony Pictures pushed the sequel to 2018 earlier this year, in favor of the spin-off The Sinister Six. Today we have a rumor that may be fairly surprising, since it involves the possible resurrection of Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy.

Christian Today reports that Sony is considering using a story line from the Spider-Man comics, where a distraught Empire State University professor, who fell in love with Gwen Stacy, started to lose his mind after she died, creating a clone of her and turning himself into a villain known as The Jackal. This story was part of Marvel's "Clone Sagas" in the comic books, that took place in the 1970s and 1990s.

It's also possible that she could return in Sony's rumored all-female Spider-Man spin-off, »

Will 'Spider-Man' Star Felicity Jones Return as Black Cat?

3 November 2014 11:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Felicity Jones signed on for a mysterious role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 back in January 2013, many believed she was playing Felicia Hardy, a.k.a. Black Cat. The actress then dropped a few hints that she was playing Black Cat leading up to The Amazing Spider-Man 2's release this May. We did learn that her character's name is Felicia, although it was never confirmed if she is Felicia Hardy or simply different character. During an interview with GQ for her new film The Theory of Everything, Felicity Jones claims that she would love to play Black Cat, although it doesn't seem to be set in stone by any means.

"Being vacuum-packed into a leather suit, doing backflips?! I'd love that. Can you start a petition for me?"

After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn't perform quite so well at the box office, the franchise is going in a different direction, »
