With Tom Holland already set to play Peter Parker in Marvel and Sony's new Spider-Man, the studios are eyeing Marisa Tomei to play Aunt May. Variety reports that the actress is the studios' top choice for the Aunt May role, with an offer going out to the actress last week. It isn't known yet where things stand in the deal-making process, or if the actress is planning on accepting the role.
Marvel and Sony are currently seeking a screenwriter to develop the story with director Jon Watts, but sources reveal that they want to lock down actors who will appear in multiple movies, so schedules can be worked out. It isn't known what other roles they are currently looking to cast, or if they have any specific writers in mind to work on the script. All we know about the Spider-Man story thus far is that it will bring Peter Parker back to high school, with a new trilogy that is reportedly set during each year of school, with Peter already established as Spidey, avoiding the traditional origin story.Read More

With John's social life at a standstill and his ex-wife about to get remarried, this down on his luck divorcee finally meets the woman of his dreams, only to discover she has another man in her life...Her son. Cyrus takes an insightful, funny and sometimes heartbreaking look at love and family in contemporary Los Angeles. Still single seven years after the breakup of his marriage, John (John C. Reilly) has all but given up on romance. But at the urging of his ex-wife and best friend Jamie (Catherine Keener), John grudgingly agrees to join her and her fiancé Tim (Matt Walsh) at a party. To his and everyone else's surprise, he actually manages to meet someone: the gorgeous and spirited Molly (Tomei). Their chemistry is immediate. The relationship takes off quickly, but Molly is oddly reluctant to take the relationship beyond John's house. Perplexed, he follows her home & discovers the other man in Molly's life: Her son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill). A 21-year-old new age musician, Cyrus is his mom's best friend and shares an unconventional relationship with her. Cyrus will go to any lengths to protect Molly and is definitely not ready to share her with anyone, especially John. Before long, the two are locked in a battle of wits for the woman they both love, and it appears only one man can be left standing when it's over.Read More
