The "Spider-Man" movie franchise is getting a reboot, like all franchises seem to do these days, and TOBEY MAGUIRE is OUT. Yesterday, Columbia Pictures announced they've found their new Peter Parker-slash-Spider-Man after a worldwide search.
And he is . . . a relatively unknown 26-year-old British guy named Andrew Garfield.
Andrew has only been in a few movies over here . . . he was Francis Weston in "The Other Boleyn Girl" and Anton in "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" . . . but in England, he's considered a rising star.
Right now the first new "Spider-Man" featuring Andrew is tentatively scheduled to come out in exactly two years and one day: July 3rd, 2012.
