Hilary Duff Allegedly Reading 'Spider-Man' Reboot for Female Lead Role

The Globe and Mail notices a script marked 'Spider-Man' on the table of the singer/actress' house, with lines for a character called 'girl' are highlighted.

The search of new love interest for Peter Parker in "Spider-Man" reboot has included the name of Hilary Duff. The "Lizzie McGuire" star is said auditioning for the role after a script for the movie has reportedly been found in her house.

The Globe and Mail recently visited Duff and her husband Mike Comrie's house for an interview. There, the publication noticed "a script marked 'Spider-Man' sits on the table, with lines for a character simply called 'girl' highlighted in yellow."

While The Globe and Mail linked the finding of the script to the role of Spider-Man's love interest, Cinema Blend suggested that the role offered to Duff might be a small or cameo one.

Previously, Lindsay Lohan was also said eying the role of Mary Jane who was portrayed by Kirsten Dunst in "Spider-Man" trilogy. However, another report mentioned that the red-haired female character would not appear in the untitled Spider-Man reboot. Instead, she will be replaced by Gwen Stacy, Parker's other love interest in the comics.

So far, the officially announced cast member of "Spider-Man" reboot is Andrew Garfield who will portray the main character. Marc Webb is set to direct the movie, which is aimed to be a "more gritty, contemporary redo of the (movie) series." Production is planned to start in December this year for July 3, 2012 U.S. release.

Hilary Duff is perhaps best known for her roles in teen movies such as "The Lizzie McGuire Movie", "A Cinderella Story", and "Material Girls". She will next appear in "Bloodworth" and is set to star in "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde".

    Everything about this movie and the casting screams shitty and massive box-office FLOP-O-RAMA DISASTER. Like everyone else, I'd rather they NOT make this movie and do something better and more profitable with their money, instead.
