Spider-Man 4 to start shooting next year

JK Simmons has it on good authority that Spider-Man 4 will start shooting in 2010.

The authority in question is Sam Raimi, who Simmons saw over Christmas.

While Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi are expected to return – though neither of them has locked in a final deal - it looks like Simmons is well up for returning.

Comic relief

Just don’t expect him to star. “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 told MTV. “

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.”
