Another director's name has been thrown into the ring of potential helmers to take over a rebooted franchise. Quiet Earth is reporting that Nimrod Antal (Predators) is a top contender to direct the new Spider-Man franchise.
We /marc-webb-to-direct-spider-man-reboot/reported yesterday that Marc Webb was at the top of Sony's list to helm the reboot, but this new story claims that Antal is the top choice of not only Sony, but of Sam Raimi as well. Here's an excerpt from the article.
The whole story goes like this: Sam Raimi met Nimrod on the Sony lot before his first US film, Vacancy. They clicked, so Sam hired him to direct Armored. Now, Predators is getting some great word-of-mouth around tinsel-town. Warners loves it and now Sam Raimi and Sony want the director back at the studio to helm Spiderman
Of course, none of this has been confirmed as of yet. Be sure to keep it right here as we'll be updating you on the plight of this new rebooted franchise as soon as we have more information.
