The Almost Spider-Man Lands in Detention

ON

And takes on a movie slasher

He vied the new Spider-Man gig, and you can see him in an audition for the film if you head over to LatinoReview.com, alas, he did not get it, and so Josh Hutcherson (Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant) is moving on to Detention.

The film is a horror-comedy starring Dane Cook that concerns a group of teens in their final year of high school who must contend with a movie slasher who has come to life.

Joseph Kahn will direct from a script he penned with Mark Palermo. Kahn is a music video vet who has worked with Eminem, Blink 182, U2 and Garbage.

Oh, and he also directed Torque in 2004. Yee-haw.

Detention has a $10 million budget and begins shooting in L.A. next month.
