speculation back in January over who should play the young Peter Parker in the upcoming Spiderman reboot. The role went to top British rising star Andrew Garfield (Boy A, Never Let Me Go).
Now Sony is reportedly on the hunt for an even younger Peter Parker, and also for a child actor to play the son of The Lizard, Billy Connors.
According to Moviehole, Sony launched auditions this morning in search of the young actors.
Sony want a dark-haired Caucasian boy to play Peter Parker at age 4 to 6 years old. Ideally, the boy should presumably look a little like Andrew Garfield.
In addition, the studio's on the hunt for an 8 to 11 year old actor to play Billy Connors, the son of Dr. Curt Connors (to be played by Rhys Ifans, announced earlier this week).
Shooting will begin in December 2010 in Los Angeles and Spiderman 2.0 is scheduled to hit theatres in July 2012. The studio plans to release this film version in 3D.
