Andrew Garfield wants to star in 'Spider-Man' sequel
The star of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' admits that he wants to appear as Peter Parker in a second film
Andrew Garfield has admitted that he wants to star in a second Spider-Man film.
The British actor will make his debut as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens in UK cinemas on July 3. A sequel is already scheduled for release in May 2014. Discussing his involvement in a second Spider-Man film, Garfield told The Hollywood Reporter: "If we do one, I hope I can do it - I hope they'd let me do it. I hope so."
However, he also admitted that the sequel is still in the early stages of development, saying: "I think we want to get this one out! They already have a release date for the second. But no script! So we have our priorities in order."
The screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man was written by Alvin Sargent, Steve Kloves and James Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt wrote a draft for the sequel before exiting the project to concentrate on other film work.
In April, it was reported that Star Trek writing team Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman had been recruited to replace Vanderbilt. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, producers of The Amazing Spider-Man, are also overseeing the sequel.
The Amazing Spider-Man's UK premiere took place at Leicester Square in London earlier this week. Press play below to watch a video report from the premiere, including interviews with Garfield and castmates Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans.
