Sony will shoot an animated Spider-Man movie. Originally, the release date was scheduled for Jul. 20, 2018 but now, it has been changed to Dec. 21, 2018.
Variety reports that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the filmmakers behind The Lego Movie, will serve as the directors. They will also collaborate on writing the screenplay.
Here’s more from Deadline: “The push comes after the studio earlier this year unveiled its Spider-Man reboot plan with Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal steering the ship of its $4 billion live-action franchise. Under that deal, Spider-Man will appear in his Disney/Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War that is part of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, and then Sony Pictures will release the next stand-alone installment on July 28, 2017, with Jon Watts directing and Tom Holland as the young Peter Parker.”
