It seems that director Sam Raimi might be heading home for his new film. According to The Oakland Press, Raimi will return to Oakland County in Michigan, where he grew up, to film certain scenes of Spider-Man 4.
Raimi is slated to begin production on Spider-Man 4 in 2010, in fact and, he said, envisions shooting some of that movie in Michigan.
"I'll be looking at Michigan for our second-unit photography on the new Spider-Man film," he confirmed.
The extensive infrastructure needed to crank out megabudget productions like the three "Spider-Man" movies he already has made has, for the most part, kept him in Hollywood, Raimi pointed out.
Producers are always looking at the bottom line, and if they can get the same looking stuff somewhere else cheaper, they're going to shoot there," Rumble said.
Such was the case with Spider-Man 3.
"It was cheaper to shoot in Ohio because the streets we were shooting on had storefronts that looked a little bit more like New York than Detroit did," Raimi explained. "But if the incentives Michigan has now had been in place, we would have had the money to adapt a set in Detroit."
