Army Archerd at Variety reports that Spider-Man 3 will be filming in New York starting today for the next five weeks.

Archerd writes: "No, he won't be climbing the Empire State Building -- that was "King Kong" territory.

However, he (Tobey Maguire) will be in Central Park and Times Square among many of the city's sites and sights. Some other New York scenes can also be computerized with "Spider-Man 3" in post-production.

The interiors started filming at Sony in Culver City, Jan. 16, and the sets are now in the process of being dismantled. Other New York street scenes will be lensed on Paramount's terrif New York Street sets in Hollywood."

Spider-Man 3 will be released in theaters on May 4, 2007.
