Marc Webb was highly regarded in the music video world when he made his feature directorial debut with 2009’s swell romantic comedy/drama (500) Days of Summer. The sweet and uniquely told indie was a massive success, and Webb showed tremendous promise as a filmmaker—so much so that Sony then hired him to reboot the Spider-Man franchise. Since that time, though, Summer remains the only non-Spider-Man movie under Webb’s belt, as he went right into directing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after the first Spidey pic. The plan was for Webb to also move right into directing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 after the second film in order to stay on schedule, but after the critical and commercial disappointment of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony has opted to push back Spider-Man 3 and move forward with The Sinister Six first instead.
Which brings us to today’s promising news regarding Webb’s next directorial effort. With The Amazing Spider-Man 3 postponed (or possibly canceled altogether), Webb is now eyeing two smaller pictures for his next project, and he’s landed a rather talented young individual to lead one of them: Miles Teller. More after the jump.
