MTV reports that director Sam Raimi has some details about the upcoming Spider-Man 4, but has to stay mum in the meantime.
Raimi says, “Right now, David Lindsay-Abaire is working on a draft of the new picture and he’s hard at work, and hopefully we’ll see something in about three months.”
Despite rumors that say that The Lizard, Morbius and Carnage are potential enemies to Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman, Raimi cannot give any information away just yet:
“I’m not at liberty to discuss the villains yet. I think I have to wait ’til the finished screenplay, and then it’d be up to Sony Pictures and the producers to determine when they want to release that information. To them, it’s usually a big, a big, big thing, a big moment where they want to present the villain with the proper respect or fear that he or she deserves.”
According to Raimi, the film’s release date of May 6th, 2011, is firmly set in stone:
“We have to make the release date, and on all of these pictures, the ‘Spider-Man’ films – and I’m sure it’s the same as with many of the other bigger-budgeted films – they have release dates far in advance of a screenplay, so it’s about getting it ready the best you can in time for the first day of production. That’s what we’ve always done, and that’s what we’ll try to do again.”
