Try not to panic when you read this: The big "Spider-Man" movie is being pushed back.
Columbia Pictures has announced that it's rolling back the start of production on the big Sam Raimi-directed flick, which stars Tobey Maguire as the wall-crawling superhero and maybe John Malkovich as his foe, the Green Goblin.
That means the release date, which had been set for Nov. 2, 2001, is now May 3, 2002.
Why the delay? Producer Laura Ziskin says it's got nothing to do with the writers and actors strikes that loom on the horizon, as "Spider-Man" is supposed to wrap up principal photography before that stuff happens. She said the extra time is needed for post-production and effects.
