Logan Lerman, the star of “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” says he's in talks to play Peter Parker in the upcoming "Spider-Man" movie that will reboot the blockbuster superhero franchise.
“There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into,” Logan told Access Hollywood.
At 18 years old, Lerman would seem a good fit for the role of a teenage webslinger in director Marc Webb's film, though nothing is official at this point regarding his attachment. However, Lerman said he was a big fan of the famous Marvel hero.
“It’s one of my favorite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series,” he said. “I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it.”
“It’s just, you know, conversations are starting," he added. "It’s a long process with the studio and the producers and everything. But it’s definitely a project that I’m really interested in, of course. I’d love to focus on the human element a little bit more. It’d be such a fun experience.”
“Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” hits theaters February 12.
