Sticking With 'Spider-Man' Sequels, Sam Raimi Drops 'Jack Ryan'

Confessing that he is committed to both 'Spider-Man 4' and 'Spider-Man 5', director Sam Raimi noted that he is out from the run for the director part of Tom Clancy's 'Jack Ryan'.

Reported to be attached to a Jack Ryan movie, "Untitled Jack Ryan Project", director Sam Raimi sets the record straight. To MTV News, the 49-year-old pushes aside the speculation of him serving as the helmer of the Tom Clancy's adaptation reasoning that he is committed to do "Spider-Man 4". He said, "Because I'm committed to 'Spider-Man' and making that picture, I think it's going to knock me out of the running for the Jack Ryan picture."

Though revealing that he is most likely not being involved in the project, Raimi still hopes that he is not completely cut out from any Tom Clancy movie saying, "I love Tom Clancy, and I hope they'd keep me in mind." Back in March, the producer of horror remake "The Grudge" has been reported by Variety to be in negotiations to direct the reboot as well as its possible sequels.

On the "Spider-Man" project, he suggested that the production of the latest installments of the superhero movie may begin sometime in 2010. "Production [on more 'Spider-Man' films] would start probably by March, I'm guessing of 2010," so he claimed. Both "Spider-Man 4" and "Spider-Man 5" are scripted by James Vanderbilt and will be produced by Avi Arad, Grant Curtis and Laura Ziskin. "Spider-Man 4" is expected to be finished by May 2011.
