Logan Lerman May Be Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man
Who's Logan Lerman, you ask? Well, in addition to starring as the titular Percy Jackson in February's fever dream kiddie pic, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, he's also apparently lined up to play Peter Parker. Sony has placed the 18-year-old on the top of their list to play Spider-Man in the Marc Webb-directed reboot of the mega-franchise, ahead of better known young actors like Jesse Eisenberg and Anton Yelchin.
HitFix's Drew McWeeny (who you know better as "Moriarty" from his days at Ain't It Cool) reports that while Lerman is Sony's "first choice," no financial negotiations have begun just yet. Still, a source close to the production says it's "almost 100% locked."
No word yet on who will play the red-headed Mary Jane to Lerman's Peter Parker, but here's hoping Sony decides to give Movieline favorite -- and actual ginger -- Emma Stone a call.
