Claflin, Redmayne Test For “Spider-Man 2”

Four more names are under consideration for the role of Harry Osborn in Marc Webb’s upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man” sequel at Sony Pictures.

Douglas Booth (“LOL,” “Great Expectations”), Sam Claflin (“Snow White and the Huntsman,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), Boyd Holbrook (“Hatfields & McCoys,” “The Host”) and Eddie Redmayne (“Les Miserables,” “My Week with Marilyn”) are all said to have auditioned for the role today.

This report follows on from news last week that Brady Corbet, Dane DeHaan and Alden Ehrenreich were all under consideration. At the time, the role was said to be brooding and dark.

Now though, it seems the role is still being fine tuned as “athleticism and good looks” have become key considerations. James Franco played the role in the previous Sam Raimi-directed trilogy.
