Spider-Man Reboot and Men in Black III Get Production Start Dates
Posted 08.02.10 by Ryan
Sony already had picked 2012 release dates when it announced both a Spider-Man reboot and Men in Black III. Now both movies are set to start shooting this year to help reach those dates — May 25th for MIB III and July 3rd for Spider-Man.
ComingSoon reports that Men in Black III will start shooting in New York City this September, while Spider-Man, who technically makes his home in New York, will start shooting in Los Angeles this December.
The Spider-Man reboot sees the 26-year-old Andrew Garfield stepping into the teenage role of Peter Parker, under the direction of Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). Garfield won the title role over a long list of (younger) applicants. Webb has described Garfield as a "a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity."
Director Barry Sonnenfeld, along with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, will return for Men in Black III, which finds Smith traveling back in time to meet a younger Jones (played by Josh Brolin). Jemaine Clement will be playing the alien antagonist Yaz.
