Sources for IESB.Net have been busy beavers today in the comic book-to-film world genre with potential scoops on three adaptations currently in the works.
Josh Hutcherson (“Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant”) has apparently joined the short list of contenders for Sony’s upcoming “Spider-Man” reboot.
The Green Hornet
The site claims Sony Pictures are apparently “displeased with the results” they’ve seen so far of Michel Gondry’s “The Green Hornet” film adaptation.
A source claims the “tone is too campy, they’re not happy with the work from director Michel Gondry and Seth Rogen does not look the part. At all. In fact, the feeling at Sony is the movie is a disaster.” Strong words.
Not surprisingly a Sony spokesman has come back to Indiewiredismissing the report at “complete garbage” and having seen one-third of the film thus far what’s on offer “is outstanding… remarkable”.
With Guy Ritchie ditching this project in favour of “Sherlock Holmes 2”, the Akiva Goldsman-produced comic adaptation has stalled over at Warner Brothers. The reasoning? “a direct result of their not-so-hot reaction to The Losers and especially Jonah Hex”.
