18-year-old “Percy Jackson” star Logan Lerman is the first potential candidate being mentioned to play the new version of “Spider-Man” reports Access Hollywood.
“There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into. It’s one of my favorite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series. I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it” said Lerman to the entertainment news show.
Lerman re-iterates that talks are still only in the earliest stages – “conversations are starting. it’s a long process with the studio and the producers and everything. But it’s definitely a project that I’m really interested in, of course” he says.
Update: Sony Pictures and Lerman’s agent have added further details. A Sony rep tells Heat Vision that “No offers have been made, nor have any business discussions been made with Lerman”. Right now the studio is compiling a list of candidates, Lerman IS on that list.
