Movie bosses are still searching for an actor to replace Tobey Maguire
as the new Spider-Man
after dismissing widespread rumors
newcomer Logan Lerman
is in the running for the part.
The young star of upcoming film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
sparked speculation he's in talks to play the superhero in a movie prequel after admitting, "There have been a few discussions, it's definitely something I'm looking into."
However, a spokesperson for Hollywood studio Sony Pictures insists they haven't approached the teen, confirming, "No offers have been made, nor have any business discussions been made with Lerman."
Plans for a prequel were put into motion last month when Maguire and director Sam Raimi
quit the project, and Sony bosses decided to explore the superhero's past for the next installment of the franchise.
