Now that Sony's "Spider-Man" movie franchise is looking for a new director, the search is on for a filmmaker who can bring Peter Parker's teenage adventures to the big screen. But as anyone who's ever tackled a high-profile reboot knows, starting over can be tough.
That's why "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams (who we recently suggested as a potential "Spider-Man" director) seemed like the perfect person to ask for advice about how Sony should approach the task of rebooting the "Spider-Man" movie franchise.
"When I first heard they were rebooting it, I thought, 'Really?'" Abrams told MTV News at the National Board of Review red carpet. "Didn't they just do it? Then I realized, 'No I'm just old.' I thought the first one just came out."
"I guess it's smart, I don't know," he shrugged. "I think, as the director of 'Mission Impossible 3' and 'Star Trek 15' or whatever it is, I'm probably the last one to speak badly about a reboot of anything. So... 'Yay! Reboots!'"
As for "Spider-Man" advice, Abrams decided to stick with what worked for him — for "Star Trek," at least.
"Definitely cast Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto," he laughed.
