J.K Simmon in Spider-Man
Though Columbia Pictures does not have Sam Raimi or Tobey McGuire officially signed on for Spider-Man 4 just yet, actor J.K. Simmons still confirms that the next installment will be ready for shooting in 2010.

And Simmons will be returning as Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson.
Catching up with SplashPage at Sundance, J.k. Simmons revealed that not only is happy with the bits of screen time he gets in the film, but he also remains in contact with Sam Raimi. When it comes to the character's involvement in the fourth installment, he's happy to keep tradition.
“We’ve definitely brainstormed ideas for Triple-J, but I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies,” he said. “The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right. Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and everybody else do the heavy lifting.”
Sounds good, but let's not count our chickens before Raimi and McGuire sign back on; which they are expected to do. Kirsten Dunst? She's a little more up in the air.
