As you have heard (500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb will be directing the Spider-Man reboot films, and it was announced last week that Sony Pictures is going to take the story into the third dimension. They obviously want the next three Spider-Man films to be top notch 3D stuff, none of this conversion crap that other studios are turning to. So it's only appropriate that Webb met with James Cameron to discuss different ways and ideas that the Spider-Man reboot can be done using this new 3D technology.
The producer of Avatar John Landau was recently interview by MTV and here's what he had to say,
Last [week] we met the director of [the next ‘Spider-Man’ film]. [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.
This may not seem like such a big deal, but if you recall back in 1991 James Cameron wrote a treatment for a Spider-Man film that he never got a chance to do, and Cameron was happy to meet with Webb to discuss the next Spider-Man film. Landau also explains that Cameron loved Webb's (500) Days of Summer, and gives a little more insight on 3D adding,
Other movies are turning to it now, some of which I agree with, some of which I don’t agree with. ‘Clash of The Titans’ is coming out in 3-D; they’re converting it very hastily into 3-D. I’m not in favor if that,. If you want to shoot a 3-D movie, shoot it in 3-D.
That's what I've been saying all along! I'm happy that at least Spider-Man will be shot in 3D. If Cameron has any influence what-so-ever on this next Spider-Man reboot that would be cool. But who knows what this next series of Spider-Man films will be like. I'm actually excited for it, mostly because I think Webb has got what it takes to give this series a new and original spin. As long as they don't cast Taylor Lautner! Only time will tell.
