The new "Spider-Man" plans to swing closer to movie theater audiences.
The next Spidey movie will be filmed in 3-D and is scheduled for release July 3, 2012, Sony Pictures announced Wednesday. The fourth installment is being directed by "(500) Days of Summer" filmmaker Marc Webb following the departure of Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, the director and star who worked on the previous three "Spider-Man" films.
Production on the next film, which will focus on a younger version of the superhero, will begin later this year.
