On the heels of Peter Jackson’s supposed departure from the “The Hobbit”, Sam Raimi let it be known he would not reject an offer to direct the “Lord of the Rings” prequel. If this were to happen, “Spider-Man 4” will need to be pushed back or Colombia will be forced to find a new director for the series.
Leading lady Kirsten Dunst insists this is the first time she’s heard of the rumors and professes that without Sam Raimi directing “Spider-Man 4”, there will be no snaggletooth. Couple that with the possibility Tobey McGuire may not return and “Spider-Man 4” will be a major flop, says Dunst.
”It’s disrespectful to the whole team, I think, to do that. And audiences aren’t stupid. It’d be a big flop without me, Tobey, or Sam. That would really not be the smartest move. But they know that already. [Sony chief] Amy Pascal would never do that.”
Sounds more like an act of a desperate woman. Clearly, demand for Kirsten Dunst is waning and she’s hoping for a big pay day. Spider-Man will be the last thing people remember her for. Sadly, everyone will confuse her with Sabretooth from X-Men.
