Studio quick to respond, Logan Lerman NOT in talks for Spider-Man



Despite strongly implying that he and Columbia have been talking Spider-Man, Logan Lerman has no actual connection to the Spider-Man reboot yet other than being on a list of potential actors.

From Heat Vision:

Logan Lerman is not in talks to play Peter Parker in the "Spider-Man" reboot.

Both Columbia Pictures and the actor’s camp have denied that Lerman, who stars as the title character in “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” is the lead candidate for job. In an interview with Access Hollywood, Lerman reportedly said, “There have been a few discussions; it’s definitely something I’m looking into.” That has led to reports that Lerman is the new Parker.

While a “wide net” is being cast, according to a studio spokesman, “No offers have been made, nor have any business discussions been made with Lerman.” The actor’s camp also confirms no business discussions are being held at this time.

The studio has yet to even close a deal with the film’s potential director, Marc Webb, who would helm what promises to be a much more lean and high school-focused movie than the Sam Raimi-Tobey Maguire predecessors. 

Anything to do with Spidey is hot news, of course, but it’s one thing for an actor to say, “I’m very interested in it,” like Lerman did, and another to actually have the studio interested in him. At this stage, Sony is looking at all actors who could fit the bill of a high school teen and is compiling a list. And Lerman is on that list.

Complicating Lerman's chances is his turn in "Percy Jackson," another mega franchise (which opens Feb. 12). If "Jackson" is a hit, Fox is likely to move fast on a sequel, thus tying Lerman up.

Hope he learned his lesson which is you don't talk about projects in that manner until you've signed on the dotted line. Roles have been lost for less Perseus Jackson!
