Last month we reported that, contrary to previous reports, Logan Lerman had not been offered the title role in the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot. Now, according to Hitfix, it seems that Lerman has actually been offered the role.
While the site reports that contract negotiations haven't taken place yet, a source told the site that Lerman is, "almost 100% locked" to play Peter Parker. It was said that Lerman beat out other actors such as Anton Yelchin, Patrick Fugit, Jesse Eisenberg and Johnny Simmons.
Lerman last starred in the film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Lightning Thief, which was released in February and also in last year's action film Gamer. We'll be sure to keep you posted on this breaking story as soon as more information comes in.
