Following reports earlier this month of Jamie Foxx joining the cast of Marc Webb’s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man sequel, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that casting is underway for the part of Harry Osborn, played in Sam Raimi’s original trilogy by James Franco.
The trade’s report indicates that casting for the part has shifted from a larger, athletic actor to someone “dark and edgy.” Among those said to be up for the role are Brady Corbet (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Melancholia), Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, Lawless) and Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker, Beautiful Creatures).
Whoever is cast will join the returning Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone along with Shailene Woodley in the part of Mary Jane Watson.
The Amazing Spider-Man sequel hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
