Sony Motion Announces The Name Of The New Spider Man
Tom Holland, a 19-year-old from Kingston-upon-Thames, has been chosen to play Peter Parker in a new Spider-Man movie, which is set for release in 2017.
Tom Rothman, Sony Motion Pictures chairman, said: “For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we’re off to a roaring start.”
Tobey Maguire starred as Peter Parker in a live-action trilogy which was released between 2002 and 2007, while Andrew Garfield took the helm for both films in the recent Amazing Spider-Man franchise.
