MUMBAI: Spider-Man 3 director Sam Raimi confirmed at a Los Angeles media briefing on Friday that Sony Pictures plans to make a fourth, fifth and sixth instalment of the popular film, says www.Hollywood.tv founder Sheeraz Hasan.
Raimi said that “he hasn’t had time to think of any involvement and he doesn’t want to presume Sony would want him to direct. “It’d be very hard to say goodbye to Spider Man,” Hasan quotes sources as saying.
Meanwhile, speculation is rife that Raimi is seriously thinking about making The Hobbit. The possibility of Raimi directing The Hobbit surfaced after the public falling out between Peter Jackson and New Line chairman Bob Shaye left the Lord of the Rings prequel without a director, a fate Spider-Man 4 could face if Raimi takes the job.
Raimi has already gone on record, saying that ”Peter Jackson might be the best filmmaker on the planet right now. But, I don’t know what’s going to happen next for me right now. First and foremost, those are Peter Jackson and Bob Shaye’s films. If Peter didn’t want to do it, and Bob wanted me to do it Ã¢â‚¬â€ and they were both okay with me picking up the reins Ã¢â‚¬â€ that would be great. I love the book. It’s maybe a more kid-friendly story than the others.”
