The Twilight hunk is reportedly the top choice with Columbia executives to star in
the film, after Maguire pulled out last week over a reported script issue.
Daily Variety claimed movie bosses are planning to make a prequel about Spider-Man's
alter-ego, Peter Parker, as a teenager instead - and Pattinson is the hot favourite
to land the role, reports the Daily Mirror.
A source tells the publication, "The buzz in Hollywood is all about R-Patz as the
hot, young thing being lined up to fill Tobey Maguire's shoes. It would be a hard act
to follow as fans were traumatised at the news Tobey was going.
"His mild-mannered portrayal as Peter Parker and the transformation to Spider-Man
kept millions of fans in the cinemas for the box-office smash. He also had great
chemistry with Kirsten Dunst, who plays love interest Mary Jane."
But Pattinson faces tough competition for the coveted role - High School Musical star
Zac Efron also has his eye on playing the web-slinger.
He says, "I don't know what the chances are to be honest. I assume they're pretty
slim. It's a long-shot but if it came down to it, it'd be a dream come true. What
young actor wouldn't?"
