Grosse claque de la soirée Sony Pictures vient d’annoncer qu’il allait rebooter la license Spider-Man en 2012, Spider-Man 4 sera donc un reboot des années Lycée de Peter Parker, Sam Raimi et Tobey Maguire ne font plus parti du projet… !

L’articles est en anglais je vous le livre tel quel :

« A decade ago we set out on this journey with Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire and together we made three ‘Spider-Man’ films that set a new bar for the genre. When we began, no one ever imagined that we would make history at the box-office and now we have a rare opportunity to make history once again with this franchise. Peter Parker as an ordinary young adult grappling with extraordinary powers has always been the foundation that has made this character so timeless and compelling for generations of fans. We’re very excited about the creative possibilities that come from returning to Peter’s roots and we look forward to working once again with Marvel Studios, Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin on this new beginning, » said Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

« Working on the ‘Spider-Man’ movies was the experience of a lifetime for me. While we were looking forward to doing a fourth one together, the studio and Marvel have a unique opportunity to take the franchise in a new direction, and I know they will do a terrific job, » said Sam Raimi.

« We have had a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration and friendship with Sam and Tobey and they have given us their best for the better part of the last decade. This is a bittersweet moment for us because while it is hard to imagine Spider-Man in anyone else’s hands, I know that this was a day that was inevitable, » said Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures, who has served as the studio’s chief production executive since the beginning of the franchise. « Now everything begins anew, and that’s got us all tremendously excited about what comes next. Under the continuing supervision of Avi and Laura, we have a clear vision for the future of Spider-Man and can’t wait to share this exciting new direction with audiences in 2012. »

« Spider-Man’ will always be an important franchise for Sony Pictures and a fresh start like this is a responsibility that we all take very seriously, » said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures. « We have always believed that story comes first and story guides the direction of these films and as we move onto the next chapter, we will stay true to that principle and will do so with the highest respect for the source material and the fans and moviegoers who deserve nothing but the best when it comes to bringing these stories and characters to life on the big screen. »

Désolé pour la non traduction mais j’aller me coucher quand je suis tombé dessus, donc en gros il est dit qu’en gros, Spider-Man a pris des voies différentes de celle des studios et qu’il aimerait faire un espèce de retour en arrière, voir un remake (façon de parler) pour avoir un Peter Parker plus jeune, comme à l’époque du premier film, les années Lycée et de faire évoluer le personnage dans cet environnement, Sam Raimi et Tobey Maguire, viennent poliment de se faire « virer »…

L’idée de Jamie Vanderbilt est vraiment de repartir à zéro c’est pour ça que je dis un reboot, donc je pense qu’on va annuler Spider-Man 4 pour refaire donc un Spider-Man, certaine rumeur parle déjà même d’adapter, pourquoi pas, Ultimate Spider-Man comme idée de départ. Et bien sûr de le faire en 3D.

Voilà pour ce soir… Grosse news en tout cas ! Si quelqu’un est d’attaque pour tout traduire je suis preneur les gars (et gazelles (on dit comme ça non ? :p))
