[Updated: Sony has confirmed this news. The new Spider-Man reboot will take the story back to high school and could compete with the next Star Trek, which is due in the summer of 2012! See the full announcement below.]
Seems like the problems hanging up Spider-Man 4 are more serious than previously reported: Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood is now reporting that director Sam Raimi and his entire cast, led by Tobey Maguire, have dropped out and that Sony Pictures will reboot the series with a new director and new cast for 2012.
Mike Fleming and I have just confirmed that Sony Pictures decided today to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after franchise director Sam Raimi pulled out of Spider-Man 4 because he felt he couldn’t make its summer release date and keep the film’s creative integrity. This means that Raimi and the cast including star Tobey Maguire are out. There will be no Spider-Man 4.Instead, Mike Fleming is told, the studio will focus on a reboot script by Jamie Vanderbilt with a new director and a new cast. All this took place today at meeting on the lot today. An official Sony Pictures news release about it is expected.
Fleming also hears that Raimi could now move on to his proposed World of Warcraft movie, or a film based on Dennis Lehane’s The Given Day….

Aimee Teegarden of Friday Night Lights makes a guest star appearance in LoTS S2.
She tells E! that: “I’m going to New Zealand on Saturday to shoot a show called Legend of the Seeker,”
“It’s a crazy-long episode. A lot goes on. My character ruins a lot of things, but she doesn’t really mean to…I’m playing one of the last Confessors, named Annabelle,”
A casting call for the role from last month described the character as “18, beautiful, innocent, like a princess in a fairy tale.”
The second season of Legend of the Seeker begins airing on November 7th 2009.
