Fourth “Spider-Man” Sets Date, Dimensions

Sony’s planned reboot of the “Spider-Man” franchise has officially gone 3D and will hit theaters worldwide starting July 3rd 2012 according to a statement by the distributor.

Production on the still untitled project kicks off later this year under the direction of Marc Webb (“500 Days of Summer”) from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin will produce.

The release date puts it just four days after the scheduled release of the sequel to last year’s critical and commercial reboot hit “Star Trek”.
