Sally Field may take on the role of Aunt May in Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot. Martin Sheen is in negotiations to play her husband, Uncle Ben.
Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, Never Let Me Go) was able to win the highly coveted Spidey role, while Emma Stone will play Gwen Stacy. Rhys Ifans is also on board as a villain.
The Spider-Man reboot is set to be released in 3D on July 3, 2012.
Ice Cube and David O. Russell are joining forces to bring to the screen a cop film that will serve as a throwback to '70s flicks such as Dirty Harry and Death Wish. It's only a concept right now, so a hunt for a screenwriter will begin. The duo previously worked together on Three Kings.
Russell's The Fighter is set to open on December 10, and it's already gaining plenty of Oscar buzz. Despite having a reputation as being volatile, the helmer has managed to stay working.
Ice Cube is currently filming the police drama Rampart with director Oren Moverman (The Messenger) and co-stars Ben Foster, Steve Buscemi, Sigourney Weaver and Woody Harrelson.
