'Daily Bugle' Editor Says 'Spider-Man 4' To Begin Filming Next Year

J.K. Simmons, who plays 'Daily Bugle' editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson, says that the fourth film in the 'Spider-Man' franchise will begin shooting in 2010.

Simmons also tells MTV that he has no desire for an increased role in the movie: "We've definitely brainstormed ideas for Triple-J, but I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies. The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right."

"Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and everybody else do the heavy lifting."

Director Sam Raimi and Tobey Mcguire are expected to return, and although Kirsten Dunst has yet to commit, that is merely expected to be a formalilty.

Though no villains have been officially announced, speculation has The Lizard as the leading candidate (his alter ego, Dr. Connors, was introduced in Spider-Man 2) with Carnage a close second.

The fourth and five installments of the franchise were officially green-lighted by Columia Pictures in September of last year, putting an end to unfounded rumors that the studio was considering replacing Tobey Maguire as the web-slinger. The news also confirms an earlier report that Sony was aiming for a May 2011 release date.
