James Cameron


Claiming he has not been approached by Sony Pictures to helm the upcoming 'Spider-Man' film, the 'Titanic' helmer says he is not interested in the project.

James Cameron has pulled himself out of competition to be director of untitled Spider-Man reboot. Speaking to MTV at the red carpet of the 15th Annual Critics' Choice Awards on Friday, January 15, the helmer said he is not interested in the project, claiming it is not being done thoroughly. "It's a little bit sloppy seconds, let's face it," he said. "I'm not interested."

Contrary to rumors which mentioned that he has been considered by Sony Pictures to tackle the "Spider-Man" reboot, the "Avatar" director told MTV the news was not true. "I haven't gotten a phone call," Cameron admitted, before adding "I don't expect to - certainly [not] after this interview."

On January 13, Deadline Hollywood reported Cameron's name has been put on the list of contenders to be the helmer of upcoming "Spider-Man" film. He was allegedly joined by "500 Days of Summer" director Marc Webb, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" helmer David Fincher, and the man behind "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" Wes Anderson.

"Spider-Man" reboot will follow Spider-Man's alter ego Peter Parker during his high school age. The film will be produced by Columbia Pictures, Marvel Studios, Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin. It is planned to be released in summer 2012.
