Spider-Man 4, He Man: The Comic Reel for October 17th


Director Sam Raimi told MTV some things about what's ahead. "I'm really excited about 'Spider-Man,' and I'm hoping to direct it," he cautioned. "I don't have a script yet, but production would start probably by March of 2010, I'm guessing. It sounds like a long time away, but we need a script first, and a lot of pre-production has to take place."

No release date announced.


According to Latino Review, Warner Brothers wasn't a fan of the Justin Marks script. "The studio gave the execs at Silver Pictures a very small list of A-director names they would consider making the film with, amongst them Doug Liman and Bryan Singer who both passed. There were some up and coming directors that were gung ho on the script, but the studio wasn't feeling them. Another reason and perhaps the biggest was that Navid McIIhargey, the exec who brought in He-Man to Silver Pictures, left the company last month to become a Senior VP at New Regency as reported last month in both trades. Sources tell me Navid and another exec (who also left Silver) -- guys in their thirties who grew up on the property -- were the unsung heroes of He-Man and are no longer there doing the day to day to get He-Man over the mountain and get the movie made."

No release date announced.
