James Franco slams The Amazing Spider-Man

Jan 30 2013, 6:14am CST | by

James Franco has slammed 'The Amazing Spider-Man'.

The 34-year-old actor - who played Peter Parker's best friend-turned-enemy Harry Osbourn in Sam Raimi's original 'Spider-Man' trilogy - was left unimpressed by Mark Webb's reboot of the superhero story and claims the only point of the copy-cat film was to cash in at the box-office.

He told MTV: ''They could've strayed a little bit more from the original. It's like... why. Guess they made a lot of money. OK, congrats. But good for them. Sam and I moved on, we made 'Oz'.''

Sam - whose new film 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' is out in March - planned on producing two more sequels after completing 'Spider Man 3' in 2007.

However, he and leading man Tobey Maguire quit over script issues and Marvel's decision to make a prequel, featuring the hero as a high school student.

The filmmaker said at the time: ''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.''

James might be unimpressed with the Andrew Garfield-fronted film, but his former co-star Kirsten Dunst previously revealed she is thrilled 'The 'Descendants' star Shailene Woodley is taking on the role of Mary-Jane Watson in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' sequel.

She commented: ''I really like her too, a lot... I think she's a sweetheart and such a good actress. I'm happy. If I had to pick someone, I'm happy she's following in my shoes.''

Sony to Digitally Alter THE INTERVIEW to Remove Military Buttons and Face-Melting Scene

Aug 13 2014 11:27am CDT | Source: Collider

Last week, Sony moved Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's comedy The Interview from October 10th to December 25th.  It seemed like a savvy bit of counter-programming where the R-rated comedy, which is about a TV interviewer (James Franco) and his producer (Rogen) being tasked with assassinating Kim Jong Un, would play against family films and dramas.  However, it now looks like the delay is due to technical reasons.  Ac ...
