Just when you though Spider-Man 3 has begun to concentrate on the effect shots one of the stars announces that re-shoots are in order.
Spider-Man 3 Re-Shoots
MTV recently caught up with actor James Franco and the soon-to-be 2nd Green Goblin let it slip that his next gig will be re-shoots for Spider-Man 3. Don't fret just yet, it looks like director Sam Raimi is working to fill the film with more action.
"The next thing I'm shooting?" series star James Franco said over the weekend. "Re-shoots on 'Spider-Man.' "
Revealing that director Sam Raimi has put out the call for "more action," Franco said he's being called back to the set of the blockbuster. "Probably next month," he added.
Franco said he regretted being unable to make the trip [to Comic Con] along with his co-stars, and seemed shocked by much of what was revealed there.
Despite the widely downloaded teaser trailer that shows a black-and-green-suited Franco riding a glider (see it for yourself right here), and Raimi's own admission that Franco's Harry Osbourn will be "somewhere between" the comic book characters of Green Goblin and Hobgoblin, the tight-lipped actor refused to admit that Harry's long-simmering angst turns him into a villain. "You saw me in a suit?" Franco asked, feigning incredulity. "I don't think that was me."
Franco also seemed surprised by Raimi's assertions that Harry's story line will conclude with the third film (the actor's contract expires after "Spider-Man 3"). "It's really news to me. It's actually breaking my heart to hear that my character is being rounded up in this movie," the 28-year-old Franco said, half-kidding. "God, I think I'm going to cry."
Franco goes on to mention the advantages of having Thomas Haden Church join the crew as Sandman among other things. Check out the full report over at MTV.
