Logan Lerman, the star of “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” told Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and “The Billy Bush Show” that he is in talks with Sony to play Peter Parker in the “Spider-Man” reboot.
“There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into,” Logan told Billy on Thursday.
The 18-year-old actor said he’s been a hardcore fan of the web-slinger for years.
“It’s one of my favorite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series,” he continued. “I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it.”
The “Percy Jackson” star explained that the interest in him playing Spider-Man was “vice versa,” and that both he and the studio have expressed interest.
But Logan noted that the talks with the studio are only in the preliminary stage.
“It’s just, you know, conversations are starting. 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,” he told Billy. “I’d love to focus on the human element a little bit more. It’d be such a fun experience.”
