Yelchin is listed as the rumored cast on IMBD page for the film, while Ehrenreich is proposed by actress Elena Satine as the potential depicter of Peter Parker's best friend.
After casting Andrew Garfield as the new Peter Parker, Columbia Pictures still has to find actors to take other main roles in untitled Spider-Man reboot. Recently, two names occurred as the potential depicter of Harry Osborn.
IMDB mentions Anton Yelchin as the actor who will play the character though it is still listed as a rumor. Meanwhile, Elena Satine, who has auditioned and is campaigning for the role of Mary Jane Watson, proposed Alden Ehrenreich for the same part. "Garfield is Spidey!!!! Now Alden Ehrenreich should get a nice consolation prize (cough HARRY cough) and we're rolling," she tweeted as quoted by The Playlist.
Both Yelchin and Ehrenreich were previously put among the contenders to play the coveted role of Spider-Man before Garfield nabs it. The former once played Kyle Reese in "Terminator Salvation", while the latter has his most notable role in "Tetro".
Shooting for "Spider-Man" reboot is expected to be kicked off later this year with Marc Webb on board to serve behind the lens. Since 26-year-old Andrew Garfield is cast for the lead role, there has been rumor that the story will follow Peter Parker as a college boy instead of a high school student. This new "Spider-Man" film is slated for June 3, 2011 U.S. release.
