SPIDER-MAN's Marc Webb Seeks Out The Guru Of 3D Blockbusters Himself...

Jim here. Well what would YOU do if you had the opportunity of a lifetime to direct one of the best, if not THE best superhero franchise of all time? We are talking Sony's recently announced reboot of SPIDER-MAN of course and how to successfully shoot it in web-slinging stereoscopic 3D.

I think I would get the ear of someone who knows what the heck he is talking about! Makes sense right? How about a guy who has the two highest grossing movies of all time (one in 3D!) and is also a huge SPIDER-MAN fan; having even written a script for it!

That's just what
Marc Webb did recently. He sought out James Cameron to discuss plans and compare notes for the much anticipated web-head reboot.

According to Jon Landau they met last Wednesday (via MTV): “[Webb] wants to do the next one in 3-D, which they’ve announced that they want to do. So, we want to try to support that as much as possible.”

What is further interesting is that Cameron has also publicly said that whomever helms the franchise after Raimi will be getting sloppy seconds! I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation :-) Glad Webb is doing the right thing though - he can only go higher with advice from Cameron.

Look for the SPIDER-MAN reboot in S3D theaters on
July 3, 2012! Thanks to everyone that sent in the heads-up - very cool update.
