The upcoming “Spider-man” movie is beginning production and the movie’s casting team has added more small roles up for grabs.
According to a variety of production news sites, Sony’s Spider-Man is filming under the working title “Summer of George.” The working title for the film is a reference to an old “Seinfeld” that premiered in 1997 in which George lost his job and took the summer off. Extras casting directors for the upcoming “Spider-man” movie, Tammy Smith Casting (“Guardians of the Galaxy“) in Atlanta had released a notice a few weeks back in which they were asking that local talent interested in getting cast in a small, non-speaking role in Marvel / Sony’s “Spiderman: Homecoming AKA Summer of George” submit photos and contact information in order to be considered. That notice has now been updated with more roles.
The “Spiderman” movie will begin filming this summer in Atlanta and casting directors are getting a jump start in finding all the talent they will be needing. The film is expecting to use many extras for a variety of scenes and are especially in need of talent who look to be high school aged teens. “Spider-man” casting directors are asking adults, 18+ who can still pass for being in high school send in their information for consideration. Also, the movie has a new need for police and military types. “Spiderman” casting directors are seeking talent that have REAL police and military experience.
The project needs background actors to fill the roles listed below.
Last year the news came out that Sony would be working with Marvel and sharing the “Spider-man” character. The deal allowed Spider-man to be introduced in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” and reboot the entire “Spiderman” franchise. The first of the new “Spider-man” movies is now in production and filming in Atlanta’s Pinewood Studio complex. Some weeks back, during a press conference, the question of what Marvel’s involvement would actually be in the upcoming “Spider-man” films. Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, replied with the following….
“We’re working very much [together]. It is a— I don’t know exactly what the credits will be, but it is a Sony Pictures production of a Marvel Studios film. The agreement was that it is very much a Sony Pictures movie. Amy Pascal is co-producing it with us and [Sony Chairman] Tom Rothman is leading the charge for Sony and that we are the creative producers. We are the ones hiring the actor, introducing him in this film, and then working right now on the script and soon to be shooting the actual Spidey film.”
Seems that the upcoming Spiderman movie will in fact be released by Sony and not Marvel or their parent company Disney. According to Spider-man’s IMDB page, Jon Watts is set to direct from a screenplay written by John Francis Daley. Tom Holland stars as the new Peter Parker / Spider-Man. IMDB also puts Robert Downey Jr. in the film where he will be reprising his role as Tony Stark AKA Iron Man. Also cast in the film is Marisa Tomei who will be playing Aunt May, Michael Keaton and Zendaya.
Fans have a little bit of a wait on this one. The “Spider-man: Homecoming” release date is July 7th 2017.
