J.K. Simmons Returns to 'Spider-Man 4', Filming to Start 2010
Obnoxious Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson will be found once again in "Spider-Man 4" through actor J.K. Simmons. MTV Splash Page reported that the 54-year-old actor has unveiled the casting report during an interview with the entertainment site at 2009 Sundance Film Festival, hinting also that the fourth film will start filming in 2010.
Revealing his satisfaction to play the aggressive editor-in-chief, the actor who plays Mac MacGuff in "Juno" stated that he isn't looking for increased screen time, "We've definitely brainstormed ideas for Triple-J, but I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies." He added, "The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right. Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and everybody else do the heavy lifting."
"Spider-Man 4" reportedly will be shot back-to-back with "Spider-Man 5". It will see once again the teaming up of director-actor, Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire. Produced by Avi Arad, Grant Curtis and Laura Ziskin, the script will be provided by David Lindsay-Abaire, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright for 2006's Broadway stage production "Rabbit Hole". The superhero movie itself is expected for 2011 release.
