Sony Sets Animated “Spider-Man” For 2018

Though rumored a while back, Sony has now officially announced plans for a new animated feature based on Marvel superhero Spider-Man.

“The Lego Movie” and “22 Jump Street” directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct the project, write the treatment and produce the film which is targeting a July 20th 2018 release – a year after the upcoming Marvel-approved “Spider-Man” movie hits cinemas on July 28th 2017.

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman says the film will ‘co-exist’ with the live-action Spiderman universe, but according to a press release: “The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.”

Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are on board to produce .
