Lerman’s sights still on Spider-Man despite studio snub

The star of the upcoming Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief let it slip that he was in talks to replace Tobey Maguire in the superhero film franchise during a recent radio interview, but executives at Sony have dismissed his claims.

The movie bosses insist the search is still on for Maguire’s replacement, and they haven’t approached the 18 year old.

But Lerman is still determined to land the role, telling WENN, “It’s a role that any actor would die to play. It’s an iconic character and I’m hoping to be considered for the part. I’d be ready to put on 20 pounds of muscle. I’d have to drink a lot of protein shakes!”
