New “Spider-Man” To Be A “Big Indie Film”?

More information has begun to creep out about Sony’s new Marvel-approved “Spider-Man” reboot and the result sounds exciting, indicating the move to a much younger actor has allowed for a shift to a more personal character focus.

The new webslinger himself, actor Tom Holland, admits he can’t wait to get going on the project and tells The Daily Beast: “The thing about shooting Civil War is it made me so, so excited to start shooting Spider-Man. And I’ve got to wait so long until we start shooting… But it’s soon. It’s close. And I’m ready.”

Previously the new “Spider-Man” film has been dubbed a John Hughes-inspired take, and adds that the film will very much be more like a big-budget indie film than anything else – scaling back the set pieces in the process:

“It’s not The Dark Knight. One of the special things about what we’re going to try and create is that you’re going to see the biggest independent film ever. It’s not going to be an epic thing; it’s going to be a film surrounded by these incredible things, but that follows this boy and his life. Peter Parker is a favorite of many because everyone can relate to him, and we’re going to try to make everyone relate to our Peter Parker. And John Hughes is a perfect example of what we’re going to try and do.”
